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
Congratulations on selection into National Geographic "Unique Lodges of the World." Does not surprise me one bit. Our stay with you was one of our top lifetime experiences. Not a day goes by that I don't think about or chat about what we did and saw there, what guests and you all might be seeing and doing at that moment, wishing we were there. We continue to enjoy seeing the wonderful images by Ian and guests via emails and Facebook.
