Kuyenda Bush Camp

From: $570.00

Set beneath an umbrella of shady trees on the Manzi River it is the most rustic of the bush camps in South Luangwa. A cluster of thatched and grass huts embodies the old Africa charm and offers simple yet comfortable accommodation. Gaze over the rippling plain of grasses and wait for the wildlife to come to you.


Kuyenda Bush Camp

South Luangwa National Park

Kuyenda Bush Camp lies close to Mfuwe Lodge, just an hour or so game drive. There are no infinity pools, nor wi-fi – Kuyenda is the quintessential classic African bushcamp. Your room is a simple but cosy grass hut complete with paraffin lanterns, swathes of mosquito netting and an open-air en-suite bathroom with a large ‘safari’ drum shower. No wooden walk ways connect your room to the main area, just dusty African paths in the sand.

The panoramic windows look out onto the surrounding plains and the game that frequently saunters through camp, day and night. With three twin-bedded rondavels (queen-size beds) and one double (king-sized bed) the camp ideally takes six guests. Kuyenda Bush Camp is open from June to November each year. The camp is set under a small grove of trees to keep the heat at bay as the season gets warmer.

Top of the list or activities is a walking safari, whether you are looking at a leopard or a termite your guide will interpret each sighting with a fascinating piece of information. South Luangwa has the most diverse and breathtaking landscape all around you, no two outings will ever be the same. To get even further afield, night game drives are also on offer.

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 Kapamba, Chindeni, Chamilandu or Bilimungwe. Mfuwe Lodge is a great place to start your safari in Africa.
