Project Description


The lodge offers eleven tented chalets and 7 campsites. Both chalets, as well as campsites, have their own ablution facilities with Hot and cold running water.

1 Shaka style luxury tented chalet, with bath, shower and toilet en-suite. This special tent is situated in a quiet secluded spot overlooking the river and it has its own deck and fire pit. Our guests can enjoy private drinks, a braai or a picnic lunch can be arranged. The tent is run on solar power and has mosquito nets and fans. It is ideal for a honeymoon couple or a family as it can sleep four people in an open style area.

7 Bemba luxury tented chalets with en suite shower and toilets with two having their own bath. All Bemba tents have tea and coffee making facilities. The Bemba tents have mosquito nets and fans.

3 Tonga Self-catering tented chalets all with shower and toilet en-suite, and an outside area for braais. One of the Tonga Self-catering chalets is a family tent and can sleep four people comfortably. For an optional extra we offer a self-catering trunk that has crockery and cutlery for four people. Our Lodge staff will make your evening fire for you and provide you with table, chairs and cold water for drinking.

Our campsites are extremely popular especially Elly and Mvuu as they are on the river’s edge. Behind Mvuu and Elly we have Leopard and Monkey which are bigger campsites and behind these two are our three new bush sites….Croc, Lion and Warthog.

Children of all ages are welcome


Mvuu lodge was incorporated into the portfolio of the Genesis Group of Companies in June 2011.
Lynne and Kelly Brannigan took over the Lodge under a management agreement, to begin with, and we later moved on to become shareholders[Genesis group] after a few of the original shareholders pulled out.

The Genesis Group has long been an active campaigner for conservation in Africa. The opportunity to become a part of Mvuu Lodge and help showcase the beauty Africa has to offer and hopefully influence people in a positive way about conservation was one we could not pass up.
