General Information

Mfuwe is a small village just over 100 kms from Chipata in the Eastern Province of Zambia servicing the tourism industry.  Home to an international airport, Mfuwe International Airport, the village is easily accessible.  There are no taxis as such, airport transfers are free and pre-arranged with the lodges.

Things to do and See in Mfuwe
