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.

What a wonderful place you have created here. Although game viewing is hard for this time of year it was great to be here and hear the bush becoming alive. Thanks!

Thank you to everyone who made our stay so wonderful. From the moment we arrived everything has been perfect, great food, fantastic service and of course the most amazing setting!

We came out on holiday last year and stayed at the lodge and camps. We had an amazing time and decided to rebook and come again this year. We have never repeated a holiday destination before, so we were hoping that we would have as good an experience as we did last year, but we didnt. It was better!!
We stayed at the lodge, Bilimungwe, Kapamba and Zungulila and we couldnt fault anything (not that we would anyway). All the staff are fanstastic. They literally cant do enough for you and are very friendly and poilte. All the wonderful managers and staff seem to have the places they work at running very smoothly indeed. It is clear that they are all very happy in their work. Not that there was anything wrong last year, but the food has improved and we were having restaurant quality meals in the bush (and im a chef).
Thank you so so much for everything the bushcamp company has done for us and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2017.
