Mvuu Camp update

Posted on 30 April 2014


Warm days and cool evenings with clear glassy skies packed with beautiful stars is the order of the day, at Mvuu, our magical comfortable Lodge perched on the banks of the mighty Zambezi. The fishing has not been spectacular although a nice big 25kg Vundu was caught, but over our recent Easter weekend when our whole camp was packed to the brim, everyone seemed happy just to laze away the weekend putting rods in the water, watching the game or just chilling with a nice cold beer or G&T.

Before Easter though, we were lucky to be chosen as the venue for Rory Parks Bachelor weekend. It was the first time we had hosted a bachelors and although we were a bit sceptical at first, the bachelors were so well behaved and thoroughly seemed to enjoy their weekend away. They managed to create a perfect combination of drinking, fishing and antics that go with any bachelor party. A few nice size tiger fish were caught but I think their main concentration was on the little green bottles that are plentiful at our Lodge. The feedback we had was very complimentary and one of our staff even commented…. “Eish those bachelors…they have a good fun together”.

The river is looking spectacular at this time of the year, well actually all year round, but our cooler days are so enjoyable and it takes a lot to beat sitting round a nice big camp fire enjoying the noises of the African bush. Our spacious camp sites, two of which are on the banks of the Zambezi, and five others set back all have their own ablution blocks with hot running water, braai areas and a camp hand ready to help you with whatever you may need. If you yearn for a bit more luxurious camping our self-catering chalets are so popular with hot running water, sociable open areas in front of the chalets ideal for fires, cooking and chats, and all perched with a beautiful view over the river. Sit back and soak in this superb view. Our self-catering trunks are very popular as they are fully equipped with knives, plates, glasses, pots pans, a two plate gas stove, to make it easy for your ultimate camping or self-catering experience. The lodge is in the wild though so please watch out for the chomping night hippos or quietly roaming elephants plodding through the camp and of course the ever boisterous irritating monkeys who are just waiting in anticipation of any morsel that is available to their prying eyes. The baboons are not so forward but quietly lurk around also ready to feast on anything left out so please be wary. If you are more inclined to a few days of luxury our Bemba tents are ideal and we can design special packages for large groups or just a quiet romantic weekend for two.

Mvuu Lodge looks forward to welcoming you to our new look new feel lodge for the new season, come and enjoy and leave the stresses behind.
