Directions [ correction ]

Approximately 18km from the Lower Zambezi National Park in the Chiawa Game Management area, you'll find tucked away in Zambia privately owned Mvuu Lodge. 'Place of the Hippo'. Situated on the lower part of the Zambezi River opposite Mana Pool. As you drive into Chirundu you will find a 'Chirundu Kaimon Bus Terminal' sign. Turn left at the second sign to go to the Pontoon. From Chirundu it is 11km to the Pontoon crossing (K56 000 for a local car $30 for foreign registered cars per crossing 06:00 - 18:00). Take the right-hand-road at the Y-fork just after the Pontoon crossing (See signs to Kayila) - then its just under 25km to Chiawa village - you turn right into the village and the road bends left out of the village. From Chiawa it's another 25km to Mvuu Lodge, if you ever think you may be going wrong, ask a local, they are friendly and helpful!

“I visited Mvuu during October 2019.They had a serious Tiger fishing competition on the go. Although the lodge was fully booked out, management and staff welcomed me to their campsite. A really good experience. I was able to use the dining, lounge and bar facilities, and was welcomed by all, including the fishermen! The elephant walking through the lounge area was an added bonus. The campsite is unfenced and allows game ( Baboon Warthog and Impala0 to roam freely in the camp area. Great staff, great experience..” - Felix Hodgson, 2020/03/20
