Bilimungwe Bushcamp
8 Guests – 4 Beds – 4 Bathrooms 

With private waterholes and viewing decks, Bilimungwe Bushcamp is the perfect place to sit back and watch as a wealth of wildlife visits you. Constructed on raised platforms from natural materials, Bilmungwe blends an authentic bush experience with comfort and sophistication.

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.
