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.

Mfuwe Lodge
"We had a really excellent holiday at Mfuwe Lodge... it was very comfortable, with good food and service...the game viewing was superb: a dozen hyena scavaging on an elephant corpse, a leopard stalking an impala, two male lions fighting for possession of a pride of females, another group of lion devouring a buffalo - and much more."
- Fergus Cochrane-Dyet, British High Commission, Malawi

It is wonderful to be back at Mfuwe Lodge after 4 years. Always an incredible experience. Thank you all! We’ll be back when Phoebe can stay at a Bushcamp. Until then we will dream of South Luangwa.
