Mvuu Wilderness Lodge provides luxurious accommodation and has a variety of river and birding activities on offer.

Useful Information
  • The bird life is outstanding - possibly the best birding location in Central and Southern Africa.
  • Mvuu means "hippo" in Tonga and the name epitomises the large numbers of hippo pods that float in the Shire river.
  • Mvuu is the only lodge in the Park and is therefore able to offer exclusive boat trips and game drives both during the day and at night.
