Mvuu Camp overlooks a broad stretch of the Shire River (pronounced Shiree) in Liwonde National Park. The camp is a clever mix of stone and canvas chalets and specially-designed family tents, which total 12 units or 34 beds.
An impressive thatched dining and lounge area is situated between two enormous baobabs, and dinners are sometimes held under the stars in a specially constructed boma. A custom-built education and conference centre has facilities for up to 40 delegates or smaller corporate and team building functions.
Liwonde National Park is Malawi’s prime wildlife area. The reserve encompasses the wide and scenic Shire River, as well as quiet backwaters and lagoons, marshes, open savanna and floodplain, mopane woodland and hills - habitat which support an incredible diversity of plants, animals and birdlife.
Boat trips are the highlight and offer the best way to seeing the park’s elephants as well as the huge crocodiles and the night birds. Walks with qualified scouts are also offered. The wildlife includes large breeding herds of elephant, plenty of hippo and crocodile, sable antelope, impala, reedbuck, oribi, leopard, serval and lion.
The thatched lounge overlooks the Shire where hippo, crocodile, elephant and a profusion of birds can be seen. Dinner is often served in the open boma or on the banks of the river.
