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.

My first view from my bed was three lionesses some 50 metres away with a bright red scene behind, a memory for life.

Mfuwe Lodge
We had a great time in Luangwa Valley and now we are back in Malawi. The weekend was awesome and was really great to meet the team at Mfuwe. We want you to know we enjoyed our stay – although it was very brief. Your staff were really very helpful and informative. Our guide; Charles was very brilliant and knowledgeable. He did a great job alongside his spotter; Jones. Please extend our gratitude to Ian, Andy and Jo.

We wanted to, again, say thanks for having us at your fantastic lodge.

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.
