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.

Elephants of Mfuwe Lodge Video

Every year when the wild mango fruit is ripe, a family of wild elephants visits Mfuwe Lodge. Descendants of the iconic matriarch Wonky Tusk, they carefully make their way through the Lodge's reception area and into the courtyard where the wild mango tree stands.

Latest Fact...

Jan 12, 2022

Did You Know... Our annual rains, and some of our migrant bird species, have been rather late arriving? However, the "Emerald Season" is finally here...and to prove it we were awoken very early, last weekend, by the unmistakable call of the 'African Pitta'. This is a notoriously elusive bird, but a great sighting, and some challenging photo opportunities, were had in the grounds of Mfuwe Lodge.

"Wow! What a place ... we had the most fanastic time .... the elephants walked through reception almost as soon as we got there. The staff are all quite amazing and we felt we were part of a huge family...the Choir sang (what voices!), Nathalie and the girls at Bush-Spa were wonderful - we went every siesta! James (our guide) was absolutely wonderful! But then I could say the same of everyone at Mfuwe."

"Many thanks for a spectacular adventure. It touched my heart and left memories that will remain forever. I hope to return to this magical environment with my family."
- Linda Gray, USA

You've got a pretty sublime spot here - the perfect place to spend our first wedding anniversary. It doesn't get much better than sipping champagne to the sound of hippos squelching through the mud below us - definitely one for the memory bank.
