Stylish 'new' Bilimungwe re-opens after rebuild

Bilimungwe Bushcamp has re-opened for the 2011 season!

Bilimungwe Bushcamp has always been a firm favourite with safari goers; its appeal is easy to understand with its beautiful, secluded setting, rustic charm and great game viewing. However, Bilimungwe never opened for the 2010 season; as the whole camp was being rebuilt. Now, finally, after over a year of hard work, in July 2011 it has been re-opened to rave reviews, with a completely new design and some unique “bush features”, which make Bilimungwe an even more attractive safari destination. Bilimungwe is all about exclusive game viewing with high levels of comfort and privacy, whilst retaining its truly authentic bush “feel”.

Close to the main Luangwa River and set around a series of private “water holes” this 8 bed camp is sited to take advantage of having wildlife on your doorstep. The airy lounge, bar, dining area and each of the four spacious “chalets” are constructed of natural materials on raised platforms. Whether you are lying in your comfortable 4-poster bed, sipping a gin and tonic on your own viewing deck, or even taking a “waterfall” shower, the animals are never out of sight and may well be joining you for a sundowner drink! Whilst you hardly need to leave camp, there is still the option of exciting walks as well as day or night game drives in open vehicles…conducted by Manda Chisanga an award-winning safari-guide.
