On arrival at lilongwe international airport you will be met and assisted with immigration formalities before joining your charter aircraft for the flight to mvuu lodge in liwonde national park. Flying time is approximately 45 minutes. As you approach liwonde national park you fly along the shire river, and may well see herds of elephant and sable on the floodplains as you descend to land at mvuu. From the airstrip to the lodge is only a 5-minute drive.
Mvuu wilderness lodge is situated in the heart of liwonde national park on the banks of a quiet lagoon flowing off the shire river. The lodge offers comfortable tented accommodation in spacious 'hemingway'-styled safari tents, with own en suite facilities for a maximum of 10 guests. Each tent has its own private viewing platform and is discreetly hidden between the thick undergrowth bordering the lagoon. The lodge has a swimming pool, sun deck and al fresco-dining platform overlooking the river and lagoon. Your stay on is on a full board basis, including the game activities which centre around game drives by day and by night in open vehicles, walks and boat safaris, a unique activity at mvuu. You will explore the shire river and lagoons - an excellent opportunity for sightings of elephants, hippo, crocodile and bird life. Birding is rewarding - specialities include lillian's lovebird, brown-breasted barbet, osprey, palmnut vulture, pel's fishing owl and livingstone's flycatcher. Also available is a viewing hide on a tributary of the shire river and also some interesting visits by local bicycle to the local school and surrounding rural communities.

Alternatively you could add on a stay at a lodge on the lakeshore of lake malawi for a few more days of relaxation.
