Winter has arrived at Mvuu.

From more regular sightings of lions, to large herds of elephants being seen on the banks of the Shire River, sightings at the Central African Wilderness Safaris’ northern Mvuu Camp and Lodge in Liwonde National Park continue to be action-packed this winter.

Wildlife sightings

Guests of CAWS’ Mvuu Camp and Lodge recently observed an African fish eagle take down an open-billed stork in mid-air by the river’s edge, which was quite a feat for the comparatively smaller fish eagle. What’s more, a group of birders at Mvuu got to tick an impressive 87 new species off their checklist.

The sightings for the month were rounded off with guests witnessing large herds of sable and their calves in town in the old sanctuary. The CAWS’s guides also reported an excellent sighting of a black rhino crossing the road during a game drive.
