Mvuu guests enjoy an array of interesting sightings in Liwonde National Park.

Guests visiting Mvuu Camp and Lodge over the last month, were able to enjoy an array of interesting sightings on their guided activities in Liwonde National Park. From a distance, the team had the rare glimpse of cheetah cubs (the first to be born in the park in over 100 years, and the first in Malawi in over 20 years). Other interesting sightings included that of a pangolin, which was seen by a pool of water in the park.

Guests who went out on boat safaris were also able to see herds of up to 100 elephants drinking and playing by the edge of the Shire River. At the start of the month, the team at Mvuu Camp and Lodge started to see several warthog piglets, who were merely a few days old. Some of the piglets were so young, that you could still spot their umbilical cords.

During daily game drives, the guests also spotted a crocodile capturing  a baboon for dinner as well as the extremely rare sighting of a baboon feeding on a bush buck calf. During nature walks, guests were able to spot a variety of birds, including the African Wood owl, barred owlet, olive bee-eaters, as well as the rare Pel’s fishing owl and Lillian’s lovebird.
