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.

"Neither my daughter nor I will ever forget this trip and the variety and beauty of the bush - its smells, the light, the abundance of wildlife - and those stars at night! It really is a place that once you visit calls out to you."
- Daryl Grabarek & Ariana Revilla, USA

What more to say? We had a truly memorable weekend - complete with lions eating a giraffe and elephants to the rescue. Thanks so much for the wonderful food, service and hospitality. And guiding, of course.
- Ellen Annapolis, USA

After 7 camps and 21 days in the bush, clearly the Bushcamp Company stands out as superb and focused on a stellar experience for the guests. Every camp we stayed at over the course of our trip had something very special to offer, but the overall ambience of Bushcamp was extremely intimate – there was a real sense of personal pride, as if each camp was individually owned and operated in the finest sense, while still feeling a strong pride and connection to a greater team and mission. That’s pretty special.
In the meantime, thank you for your incredible warmth and hospitality!
