Mfuwe Lodge
Had a great time at Mfuwe, the resort was the right choice for the occasion as my sister's health is very precarious and we wanted to be close to an airstrip just in case she had a problem. The accommodation was wonderful, could sit on that balcony forever watching the game come to drink, the rooms were bigger and better than expected and I particularly like the separate loo. The food was amazing and majority of the staff were friendly and helpful, our guide was extremely knowledgeable not just about the animals and birds but also the trees and plants, he varied the game drive routes every day and would always ask what we wanted to look for and try his best to find it for us. Have never seen so much game in Zambia: saw two lion kills (one in the hippo lagoon!) and leopard every day, usually two or three times but the best for me was seeing a family of wild dog with two pups, have never seen that before!

My first view from my bed was three lionesses some 50 metres away with a bright red scene behind, a memory for life.

I attach a selection of the best photos from my once-in-a-lifetime safari at Bilimungwe guided by the amazing Suzyo. Looking at these photos still makes my skin tingle at the memory of this incredible experience. It was one of the best things I have ever done in my life.
Many thanks to everyone at Bushcamps for making my visit so special. There were so many times during my visit that I wanted to pinch myself to make sure that this magical place was real. I especially want to praise Suzyo — the safari would not have been as special without him and his insightful comments. I hope to visit Bushcamps again sometime.
