The Bushcamp Company Camps, Lodges, Rates, Reviews, Videos and photos. The Bushcamp Company, which has its headquarters at Mfuwe Lodge and is well-known for its annual procession of elephants that routinely passes through the lobby between October and mid-December, excels at giving tourists genuinely exceptional safari experiences.
The group was founded in 1999 when Andrea Bizzaro and Andy Hogg, a Zambian who began in safari at the Save the Rhino Trust’s Chinzombo Lodge, brought together four camps in South Luangwa National Park (Kuyenda, Chamilandu, Chindeni, and Bilimungwe) under the auspices of a single parent company. On the banks of the same-named river, Kapamba, the sixth bushcamp, was constructed in 2005. The sixth camp, Zingulila, was constructed in 2008 to complete the portfolio, just a short distance upstream on the Kampamba River.
An unrivaled wildlife experience in one of the last unspoiled wilderness regions of Africa
Each of The Bushcamp Company’s properties has spectacular isolation, breathtaking views, and unparalleled chances for immersive safari activities as the sole safari provider in the far-off southern region of South Luangwa. The organization takes the most delight in the personal, intimate safari experiences that the small, upscale camps provide. Visitors have the chance to witness canoe transfers between lodgings, get up close to wildlife, and discover Africa on foot in the region where the walking safari was invented.
The Bushcamp Company’s accommodations are anything but the rough, back-to-the-basics impression that the word “camps” could give tourists. Both the lodge and the camps are real while still being elegant, honoring safari customs. In addition, The Bushcamp Company works hard to involve the neighborhood in the management of the camps in order to guarantee the preservation of the people, wildlife, and environment that make South Luangwa so special.

We visited the Bushcamp for our honeymoon and stayed for 5 nights at 3 different camps. Leaving each camp brought tears to my eyes because the staff made you feel like family. The service provided at each camp was unlike any hotel I have stayed at in the U.S. and my fiancé and I are in the service industry. Each camp made you feel like you were the only guests staying at the Bushcamp with attention to details, so much knowledge provided to us on the safari drives, and incredible food and service. We also spent some time at the spa getting massages, which was so relaxing. At Mfuwe Lodge we spent the most time with John our safari driver who was so knowledgeable, Amy the manager who was so accommodating and kind, and Nedson who took us to the local school and was such a wonderful host. My favorite thing to learn about Bushcamp Company was how much they give back to the community, providing water to the local town, providing jobs to locals, and giving back to schools and creating many projects to improve the living conditions. We felt like we were helping to give back by staying at this camp. We thank you very much for your hospitality and hope to return soon!

This lodge is spectacular! We could sit on our deck and watch the baboons play, the zebras graze, and the impalas run. We saw an elephant and warthogs in the front yard. The staff is so helpful, and the meals are outstanding. Our land and river safaris were led by excellent, well-informed guides who taught us so much and spotted animals that we would have missed. The Bushcamps have a hugely positive impact in nearby areas and help with schools, provide water wells, help with conservation, etc. Following a morning safari, we had a fancy brunch by the water in the wild. We had snacks and drinks while sitting on chairs by the water where we watched the hippos and saw spectacular sunsets.
We saw elephants, hippos, lions, leopards, impalas, kudos, crocodiles, etc. We took a morning walk to learn about animal tracks and fauna.
This is a must-stay lodge!
