View all Malawi hotels

Overview:  Mvuu Camp is home to elephant, lion, leopard, crocodile and hippo (‘mvuu’ actually means hippo in the local language).  Activities revolve around boating trips on the Shire River and game drives (morning and afternoon/evening).  Nature walks and bike rides are also popular.

Location:  Mvuu Camp overlooks a broad stretch of the Shire River (pronounced Shiree), within the Liwonde National Park.  A particularly rewarding way of arriving at Mvuu Camp is via the boat trip from Liwonde town.  This river trip takes guests 30 km along the Shire River, offering an excellent chance to see both game and birds amongst the ever-changing vegetation.

Rooms:  A clever mix of stone and canvas chalets and specially-designed family tents, which total 12 units or 48 beds.
