The Bushcamp Company

In Zambia's iconic South Luangwa National Park, The Bushcamp Company operates six exclusive Bushcamps in the remote south of the park, as well as the award -winning Mfuwe Lodge just inside the main park gate. Set out from any of these secluded, intimate camps and you will be guaranteed an unrivalled wildlife experience in one of the last unspoilt wilderness regions of Africa – the very place where the African walking safari was pioneered.

- Merritt Barnwell, US

Thank you all for another delightful visit to South Luangwa! It's not just the animals or the views of the rivers and hills that keep taking me back to the valley. It seems to have more to do with the people. You all have made me feel so welcome and at home at the Lodge and the bushcamps. Your friendliness and willingness to share all of your knowledge of the valley and its denizens is delightful! I enjoy getting to know more about you each time I visit.

Mfuwe Lodge
"We have been to quite a few safari lodges, including some with apparently very high world-wide reputations, but we have never had such a great time as we had at Mfuwe Lodge."
- The Shepherd Family, Australia

Thank you both for helping make my time at Mfuwe a memorable one.
I will be working hard to get back next year and spend some precious time with you all. Take care and keep being amazing!
