Set in the beauty of indigenous bush in Zambia, creating a sanctuary of pure simplicity for those seeking tranquillity and rejuvenation of mind, body and soul; the Bush-Spa in South Luangwa National Park! With views over the lagoon, all guests enjoying their Safari experience can easily arrange a visit to the Spa facility either during game drives, or just right after them. Discover a wellness sanctuary in the heart of nature at South Luangwa’s Bush-Spa.The Bush-Spa is located at Mfuwe Lodge offering their resident guests an additional service in the form of Spa treatments. Luckily the set up of the Bush-Spa is so unique, there would be no reason to limit these amenities to resident Mfuwe Lodge guests only. Having a separate entrance, a private deck and views over the lagoon, all guests enjoying their Safari experience in the Luangwa Valley can easily arrange a visit to the Spa facility.We gladly arrange transfers to and from the Bush-Spa to any of the South Luangwa Camps or Lodges within the vicinity.

I went to the Bush Spa while staying at Mfuwe Lodge. The treatment - a 90 minute massage using different African oils - was one of the best I'd ever had, and for a lot less than what I'd pay in the US.

The Bush Spa is everything you would not expect in the middle of nowhere. It is a beautiful facility, well trained therapists and a very hands on manager.. I had a massage, a mini facial and a pedicure and am very happy with the quality of all of it. Plus the therapy rooms are open with a nice breeze and... More

I loved the location of this spa. The ladies working there were friendly and good at what they do. I had a full body massage. I wish I had, had time to experience more.

You will never get anything like this again. Hippos grunting and snorting underneath and in front of the spa area. Good therapists and lovely products. Scrubs are great to take with and enjoy another time.

Great massage to the sounds of the hippos given by a great young lady. What a way to wrap up 5 days in the bush and start the lodge portion of the trip.

Fabulous massages in a wonderful hippo filled area. There were issues with the credit card machine (though we were assured Visa and MC were ok before arrrival)--but the spa host was very gracious and took the time to sort this out. The shocker was the outrageous cost of the drinks we had at Mfue Lodge bar while we waited for... More

Dear Gretchen, Thank you for taking the time to review and it is always a pleasure to welcome you and the entire family. Again our apologies for the Point of Sale Machine issues. We offer this payment service to our guests, but obviously are highly relying on the signal and reception in the bush. Not always easy, as you experienced!... More

The soothing chuntering from the hippos in the pool below is the perfect accompaniment to a strong and soothing massage. Nathalie and her team are excellent, I go for a massage everytime I am in Mfuwe :)
