21 Pins1.02k Followers
Mvuu Camp overlooks a broad stretch of the Shire River in the Liwonde National Park. The 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 between two enormous baobabs, and dinners are sometimes held under the stars in a specially constructed boma.

A gem in Malawi’s wildlife crown, Liwonde National Park straddles the beautiful Shire River and its floodplains. The park harbours a surprisingly abundant wildlife population: large numbers of elephant, reedbuck, waterbuck and sable, with a dense population of hippo in the river. Buffalo (pictured), Lichtenstein's hartebeest, zebra, roan, eland and rare black rhino have been introduced into “The Sanctuary,” a 4 000ha fenced area within Liwonde.
