Bilimungwe Bush Camp

Its difficult not to fall in love with being at Bilimungwe! Rooms are set on a small bank with a delightful front porch from which to game view in the hotter parts of the day. The camp is close to the Luangwa river, Hippo grunt at night or feed on grass just meters from your room.

Description

Bilimungwe Bush Camp

Bilimungwe Bush Camp is by far my favorite camp when I worked in South Luangwa. There is something incredibly cosy about the whole camp. Her rooms, the main dining area and the water hole in front of the camp are the best places to while away the hotter parts of the day.

The camp feels like its grown out of the surrounding landscape and trees. The old Mahogany tree is perfectly blended into the main dining area giving a warm and comfortable atmosphere. If you sit quietly there is an amazing array of bird life that comes down to the waterhole. The nearby plain is host to Giraffe, Buffalo and a resident Leopard that prowls and coughs at night.

Brian Manda – award winning safari guide – is the permanent guide at Bilimungwe.His decades of experience reveals secrets of the bush you will never have imagined.

Bilimungwe Bush Camp has four raised thatched rooms which have been carefully designed to ensure the height of comfort whilst still retaining that authentic bushcamp feel. The tangle of mature mahogany trees that surround camp are echoed in the rich, wood interiors and wooden furniture.

Bright African textiles bring splashes of colour to the elegant rooms. After an early morning game drive, head back to your room for a refreshing, open-air waterfall shower. You can continue the wildlife spectacle from your private deck. Two of the chalets have twin beds (queen-sized beds), while the other two each have a king bed. Bilimungwe sleeps up to eight guests and is open from May to December.

If you would like to learn more about this magnificent park for your safari to Africa, donate or get involved, then read up about Conservation South Luangwa.

As there are several bush camps to choose from and it’s an excellent idea to spend at least 2 nights at each have a look at Kuyenda, Kapamba, Chindeni, Chamilandu or Zungulila. Mfuwe Lodge is a great place to start your safari in Africa. Our expert advice would be to start with 2 nights at Mfuwe Lodge and then head off into the bush camps.

How to Get There

Fly into Lusaka with Ethiopian Airlines, South African Airways, Kenya Airways or Air Namibia. On arrival you can be met and escorted to your domestic flight to Mfuwe International Airport. (Meet and greet is an additional charge).

On arrival at Mfuwe you will be met by your guide who will drive you to the lodge.
