A charming and rustic camp that offers a true taste of the bush and embodies the authentic charm of old Africa.


It may be the simplest of our camps, but there’s something undeniably special about Kuyenda.

Forget infinity pools and wi-fi: Kuyenda’s simple and spacious rondavels (circular huts) open onto a spacious deck for the ultimate in bush views and come complete with open-air en suite bathroom. Panoramic windows overlook the surrounding plains and the incredible game that frequently saunters through camp, day, and night. The same can be said of the back-to-nature central lounge area – simply settle into a chair, look out over the rippling grasses, and the wildlife will come to you.


Top of the list at Kuyenda is a walking safari, with game drives also on offer both morning and afternoon/evening. Whether you are looking at a leopard or a termite mound, you will always be surrounded by some of the South Luangwa's most diverse and breath-taking landscapes, guaranteeing that no two outings will ever be the same.

Where the walking safari is King

The walking safari was born in the South Luangwa, so it’s only fitting that many of your outings will be on foot with the very finest guides.

Exceptional wildlife-viewing

Explore the rich diversity and incredible wildlife of the South Luangwa on a game drive. On four wheels, you’ll cover as much of the region as possible and maximise your game-viewing.

Heighten your senses

At night, a whole new cast of characters fills the landscape of the South Luangwa. With the help of a spotlight, take to the road and see what you can find…

An iconic tradition

As the sun sinks below the horizon, there is nothing better than finding a spectacular spot in the heart of the bush for an ice-cold drink and something to nibble on.
