Bilimungwe Bushcamp

About Bilimungwe Bushcamp, South Luangwa

Set amongst the tall winter thorn and natal trees, Bilimungwe Bushcamp is surrounded by wildlife and is a real nature lover’s paradise. The rooms and dining areas overlook one of three water holes, frequented by warthog, impala, puku and baboons – meaning fantastic game viewing before you have left the premises.

The camp is cosy, fantastically remote and surround by a real variety of landscape; pretty stretches of riverine woodland, lots of open ‘dambos’ and then there is the thick miombo woodlands. 

There is a very intense game concentration here and there is also the chance of spotting leopards, especially on night game drives.
