Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Malawi has a moderate to sub-tropical climate with three distinct seasons: from November to March is the rainy season, April to July is Malawi's winter, when the weather is cool and dry, and August to October is summer, when the weather is hot and dry. In terms of game-viewing, the dryer months, meaning a higher concentration of game at the permanent water sources, are a superb time to visit. Alternatively come for some superb bird-watching at the end of the rains.

Mvuu Camp in Liwonde National Park, is an area with a high array of animal diversity. The camp is based on the shores of the Shire River, offering a range of activities, safari options and that all round rewarding experience.

Mvuu camp is a clever mix of stone and canvas chalets and specially-designed family tents, totalling 12 rooms. An impressive thatched dining and lounge area is situated nearby, offering a magnificent river vista. Dinners are sometimes held 'under the stars' in a specially constructed boma.

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.

A particularly rewarding way of arriving at Mvuu Camp is via the boat trip from Liwonde town. This river trip takes guests 30 kilometres along the Shire, offering an excellent chance to see game and birds en route and the ever-changing scenery and vegetation along the banks.

The area can be explored via a diverse array of activities such as boating trips on the Shire River, game drives (morning and afternoon / evening), nature walks, bike rides and non-stop birding.
