New Set

Bilimungwe Bushcamp

South Luangwa National Park, Zambia


Stay at Bilimungwe Bushcamp

Set under the covers of a vast mahogany tree, this shaded group of open-fronted thatched chalets are placed around three waterholes, Bilimungwe’s very own wildlife magnets. Built up on stilts, grab a G&T from the bar and unwind, watching the enviable display of birds and animals around you. Take a tour with Bilimungwe’s resident tour guide Manda Chisanga, winner of the remarkable Wanderlust Guide of the Year, who will run you through all there is to know about Zambia’s fauna and flora.

This nature-lovers paradise definitely doesn’t ask you to compromise comfort. Each of the spacious, airy chalets is furbished in order to tastefully echo the quintessential bushcamp feel. The beautiful wooden furniture is handmade by local artisans and seamlessly blends the interior, with the exterior. After a day of wandering through the bush, spotting wildlife, kick off your boots and take a refreshing wash in your open-air waterfall shower.

The team at True Travel had a simple brief: to send us on the world’s best family safari. As soon as our boat headed down the Zambezi, it all kicked off; we passed a herd of hippos, a lazy crocodile and a giraffe drinking nonchalantly on the riverbank. A magical experience from beginning to end. Nothing was too much trouble and if we had any issue that needed resolving, there was always someone on hand to do this. Before and after, they were off the charts – simply an awesome team.
