From more regular sightings of lions, to large herds of elephants being seen on the banks of the Shire River – sightings at Mvuu Camp and Lodge in Liwonde National Park continue to be action-packed this winter.
We recently conducted the Shire River Trail for a group of guests at Mvuu Camp and Lodge. The trail is a three-day trek spanning across 30kms of scenic floodplains and Miombo woodlands. Starting at the foot of the Nafiulu Hills, leading up to a 23km hike, and ending with a 7km walk along the banks of the Shire River, the trail takes you into the heart of the bush in Liwonde National Park.
