The Bushcamp Company

With headquarters at Mfuwe Lodge – famous for the parade of elephant that regularly passes through the lobby between October and mid-December each year – The Bushcamp Company has a knack for providing visitors with truly unique safari experiences.

The outfit was formed in 1999 when four camps in South Luangwa National Park (Kuyenda, Chamilandu, Chindeni and Bilimungwe) were brought together under the umbrella of a single parent company by Andrea Bizzaro and Andy Hogg – a Zambian who started in safari at the Save the Rhino Trust’s Chinzombo Lodge. The fifth bushcamp, Kapamba, was built on the banks of the river by the same name in 2005. In 2008, just a way upstream on the Kampamba River, the sixth camp, Zingulila, was built to round out the portfolio.

As the only safari operator in the remote southern section of South Luangwa, each of The Bushcamp Company’s locations enjoys stunning seclusion with breathtaking views and unrivalled opportunities for immersive safari activities. The intimate nature of safari that the small, exclusive camps allow is what the company prides itself on most. Guests are given the opportunity to explore Africa on foot in the place where the walking safari was pioneered, get up close to wildlife and experience canoe transfers between accommodations.

While the title ‘camps’ might give visitors the idea that these are rugged, back-to-basics sites, The Bushcamp Company’s offerings are anything but. Honouring safari traditions, both the lodge and the camps are authentic yet luxurious. Plus, The Bushcamp Company strives to involve local communities in the running of the camps to ensure the preservation of the culture, wildlife and environment that  makes South Luangwa so unique.
