Here, the traditions of the African bushcamp meet elegance and style to create a stunning camp that feels like it has grown organically out of the surrounding landscape. Set beneath a huge mahogany tree, the heart of Bilimungwe is the cool, shady lounge area that looks out over one of the camps three waterholes. Settle down in a cosy armchair with a sundowner and relax as you watch an enviable display of spectacular birds and animals that clearly feel as comfortable here as you do.

With the open waters of the Luangwa River also on your doorstep and a nearby plain where leopard prowl, it's clear that this is a nature-lovers paradise, and with Manda Chisanga - Bilimungwe's award-winning resident guide - to lead you, you could not be in better hands. (In the event that Manda is not available, another guide from The Bushcamp Company's excellent and experienced team will be on hand).


Bilimungwe's four raised thatched rooms have been carefully designed to ensure the height of comfort whilst still retaining that authentic bushcamp feel. The tangle of mature mahogany trees that surround camp are echoed in the rich, wood interiors and the beautiful wooden furniture, handmade by local artisans. Bright African textiles bring splashes of colour to the elegant rooms. After an early morning game drive, head back to your room for a refreshing, open-air waterfall shower, or continue the wildlife spectacle from your private deck. Two of the chalets have twin beds (queen-sized beds), while the other two each have a king bed. Bilimungwe sleeps up to eight guests and is open from May to December.

Take advantage of the exceptional knowledge and charm of resident guide Manda Chisanga, and head out with him on a combination of walking safaris, day and night game drives, and sundowners on the river's edge. In between outings, find a chair and enjoy the wildlife magnets that are Bilimungwes three permanent waterholes. Who needs satellite television when you have your very own 'Bush TV' to entertain you?

A breathtaking camp on one of the South Luangwa's prime river locations, perfect for a bird's-eye view of the wildlife that the river and its lagoons attract. There's nothing quite like waking up at Chamilandu. Early morning views don't get much better than the rippling waters of the Luangwa River, the gentle rise of the Chindeni Hills and a vast African sky - especially when you're lying in a four poster bed in a handsome stilted tree-house.

Chamilandu Bush Camp - www.africansafaris.travel

You don't even need to leave your bed to see the wildlife - from your unique vantage point you can watch as animals roam across the landscape, or swing through the trees above your head.

There are just three stilted chalets at this exclusive camp, set on the riverbank beneath a soaring ebony grove. Enjoy a sundowner from the comfort of the thatched bar and dining area, as you watch the wildlife do the same at the river. Exceptional game viewing and understated elegance make Chamilandu a place to remember.

Chamilandu Bush Camp - www.africansafaris.travel

Chamilandu's three exquisite tree-houses perch right on the edge of the Luangwa River. Each has its own raised veranda to loll on during the heat of the day, and an open-fronted en-suite bathroom with the same magnificent views over the tranquil waters. Two of the tree-houses have twin beds (queen-sized beds) and one has a double (king-sized bed). With capacity for just six guests, this is the perfect camp for small groups.
