Bilimungwe 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’s four raised thatched rooms 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.
