Bilimungwe is situated in Zambia’s pristine South Luangwa National Park. 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 camp’s three waterholes. The outdoor eating area has a unique open-air kitchen (the only ‘bistro’ in the park!) and it forms the perfect spot for a lively barbecue in the heart of the African wilderness. Settle down in a cozy 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 Luangwa River at your doorstep and a nearby plain where leopard’s and other animals prowl, the Bilimungwe Bushcamp is a nature-lovers paradise.
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. Enjoy the open-air waterfall shower, or continue the wildlife spectacle from your private deck. Two of the chalets have twin beds (queen-sized beds) and two have doubles (king-sized bed). Bilimungwe sleeps up to eight guests to make it an exclusive and private experience.

Take advantage of the exceptional knowledge and charm of the 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 Bilimungwe’s three permanent waterholes.
