The legend of the Zambezi river boldly states that ‘whoever drinks of its water, will one day return to do so again’.


Nestled on the meandering banks of this mighty river is the perfect place to satisfy that thirst - Mvuu Lodge - "The place of the Hippo."

The beautiful Zambezi river is the fourth longest river in Africa and is home to a plethora of intriguing flora and fauna. And situated right on its banks is the stunning Mvuu Lodge.


This quintessential African Safari Lodge offers luxury tented camps, self catering and bush camp accommodation. Friendly staff make you feel welcome, passionate chefs conjure up superb meals, informed and equipped guides make your safari experience completely unforgettable!

At Mvuu we live close to nature. The Lodge is situated in a secluded location deep within the game rich Chiawa area, next to the Zambezi National Park, opposite the world heritage site of Mana Pools. Indigenous bush surrounds the lodge, wildlife roam freely through the camp, the un-spoilt and abundant river offers phenomenal game fishing - Trophy, catch and release Tiger fish being our specialty.

The magnificent Zambezi River is undoubtedly a ‘bucket list’ destination, and we at Mvuu would like to share this enchanting paradise with you.
