Bilimungwe is a wild, unfenced and cosy bushcamp with very warm hospitality and great service.
Within a very varied landscape, surrounded by dark mahogany natal trees in the South Luangwa National Park – considered one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world.
Accommodation & Facilities
There are 4 thatched chalets, sleeping up to 8 guests at a time. Effortlessly blending in with their surroundings, the chalets use a rich colour scheme to create warm stylish rooms and keep a dark mahogany theme running through to match the setting. All of the rooms are in the shade, keeping rooms cool in the African heat. Chalets are en-suite, with a bright batik separating the bathroom from the bedroom. Chalets also have a private porch with a view over the camps permanent water hole, great in between activities or for a sundowner in the evening.
The main area is comprised of a rustic lounge and open sided bar/dining area, raised on wooden decks. There is a huge dining table with a great chameleon centre piece – Bilimungwe means chameleon in the local ‘Kamanga’ language. A laundry service is included, they also supply a small pot of washing powder if you want to wash anything in the privacy of your room.
All the food is well presented and delicious and can be eaten outdoors in the wild. There are lots of tasty snacks to graze on during the day, such as home made biscuits and the option of a sundowner in the evening.
Children are allowed over the age of 12; however they must be accompanied by their parents/guardian at all times due to the wildness of the camp. Children between 12 and 16 may be able to take part in walking safaris, however this is at the guide and managers discretion.
