Mvuu Wilderness Lodge, Liwonde

You’re sitting in a deck chair, on your veranda, sipping tea in the afternoon sun. Then, out of nowhere, a hippopotamus ambles across the front lawn.

As well as the occasional hippo wandering through the camp, you’ll see a host of iconic African wildlife. Elephants bathing on the banks of the river. Crocodiles eyeing you impassively as you cruise past on your river boat. Hippos wallowing in the cooling mud, and your guide walking you quietly through a sanctuary dedicated to the rare black rhino.

A safari is definitely a big adventure. And if you choose Mvuu Camp as part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Malawi you’ll explore Liwonde Park, go on night drives to see nocturnal creatures and experience camping in the African bush.
