Set under the ample shade of large mahogany trees, Bilimungwe Bush Camp is a traditional yet elegant safari camp on the banks of the Luangwa River.
Accommodations at the camp consist of only four spacious, thatched chalets set on raised wooden decks. There are two double rooms with king beds and two twin rooms with queen beds available. The stylish chalets have open-fronts for a constant view and feature hand-crafted furniture made by local artisans. The en suite bathrooms come with flush toilets, twin vanities, indoor showers and exotic open-air waterfall showers. The private deck is the perfect spot to relax and watch the wildlife.
The camp is located in South Luangwa National Park, a world-famous wildlife haven, centered around the Luangwa River. Its historic virility stems from its topography. The Muchinga Escarpment forms the park’s western and northwestern boundaries, sloping steeply down to the river from the west side. The river valley, continued to the west by the Lunsemfwa River valley, forms a natural barrier, and to this day there are no man-made roads spanning the valley. The Park enjoys a dense animal population including Impalas, pukus, waterbucks, giraffes, and buffaloes grazing on the plains. A high number of leopards stalk the dense woodlands, while herds of elephants wade through the marshes and hippos play in the Luangwa River. There are about 400 bird species recorded in the Park.
