Embark on an Authentic African Adventure


SOUTH LUANGA, ZAMBIA(09/06) —The South Luangwa Valley National Park, home of the rustic Bushcamp Company comprising five intimate and exclusive bushcamps, is one of Africa’s last unspoiled wilderness areas. The remote camps, all within walking distance of each other, provide an unforgettable journey. Guests can walk through the Park by day with a new location at night, experiencing the exhilaration of the “real bush.” The company’s apt slogan is “From a vehicle you can see Africa. On foot, you hear, feel and taste Africa.”

Guests may still opt to stay in one location, go on game drives, and experience personalized treatment with activities that are tailored to their wishes. During their stay at any one of these authentic bushcamps, they will feel as though they have stepped back in time to a land that seems untouched by man.

Kapamka is the newest camp in the Bushcamp Company. It is the only bushcamp to stay open until the end of December. Situated in a prime location on the picturesque Kapamba River, the lodge offers the chance to enjoy this untouched corner of the Park in luxurious surroundings. Each of the camp’s four chalets has an open front for uninterrupted game viewing. The ensuite bathrooms have stone tubs and separate showers. Nothing is better than game viewing while relaxing in a hot tub. Solar-paneled lighting, paraffin lanterns and hot and cold running water ensure your comfort. The half-moon deck of the main lodge is the focal point of the camp and serves as both the dining and bar area.

The Kuyenda Camp is a traditional Zambian bushcamp perched on the banks of the Manzi River among shady trees. It is made up of four authentic thatched rondavels and sleeps eight. Guests enjoy large spacious beds, mosquito netting, and en-suite facilities, such as shower, toilet, and washbasin. The dining area, lounge, and bar overlook a grassy plain where an abundant amount of wildlife come to play, sunbathe, drink, graze, and hunt.

The Chamilandu Camp comprises three tree house chalets adorned with a tasteful blend of modern and classic décor. The interiors are tastefully designed in wrought iron and brass to offset creams and pastels. Four poster beds ensure comfort. This camp offers a bird’s eye view of native wildlife and a series of seven ox-bow lagoons which yield diverse habitats and attract many exotic animals. The 180◦ vista includes magnificent hills as a backdrop in the distance.

Nestled beneath a Mahogany tree forest, The Bilimungwe Trails Camp sits along the picturesque banks of the Luangwa River. This peaceful camp has four reed and thatch chalets with two queen sized beds with large mosquito nets and an en-suite shower, toilet and double vanities. The main dining lounge and bar are constructed on raised decking to overlook a permanent water hole where a wide variety of game comes to drink.

The Chindeni Camp is situated on the apex of a permanent oxbow lagoon with the Chindeni Hills as a beautiful backdrop. Each of the four suites has its own raised veranda from which to view the resident game and enjoy the breathtaking tranquillity of the vast lagoon. Each has two queen-sized beds, hot and cold running water, en-suite bathrooms, and polished floors. This is an ideal spot for both the avid game spotter as well as a more sedentary visitor who wishes to observe nature without a great deal of effort.
