Mvuu Wilderness Camp - Package from ± USD 1,755

Mvuu Camp overlooks a broad stretch of the Shire River (pronounced Shiree), with a profusion of hippos, crocodiles and the amazing birdlife of 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.Enthusiasts will be able to participate in virtually non-stop birding around Mvuu Camp.

The Camp            
Mvuu Camp offers a wide range of options including camping, self-catering and full board rates, as well as a range of activities. The activities on offer are the same as those offered at Mvuu Wilderness Lodge, but the camp is better suited either to families or those on a budget, as rates are more reasonable.

Mvuu Camp is a clever mix of stone and canvas chalets and specially-designed family tents, which total 12 units or 48 beds. An impressive thatched dining and lounge area is situated nearby, offering a magnificent vista of the Shire River. Dinners are sometimes held under the stars in a specially constructed boma.

Mvuu Camp also features a new custom-built education and conference centre with facilities for up to 40 delegates or smaller corporate and team building functions.

Activities       
Activities at Mvuu Camp revolve around boating trips on the Shire River and game drives (morning and afternoon/evening). Nature walks and bike rides are also incredibly popular.

-  River Safaris (Highlight is superb river cruise where guests may get close to hippo, crocodile and wonderful birdlife).
-  Boating in 1 x 10-seater safari boat.
-  Walks with experienced guides.
-  Game drives in 1 x 10-seater vehicle.
