Rated as one of the best value safari experiences in Africa, THE BUSHCAMP COMPANY once again 'ups their game' with some exciting new upgrades across Mfuwe Lodge and the camps.

Andy Hogg, who has pioneered exceptional safaris in Zambia, is always on the lookout for ways to enhance guest experiences and continue providing outstanding wildlife experience in the South Luangwa.

WHAT'S NEW FOR 2020? (scroll down for the full updates)


The ideal stopover when you arrive in the South Luangwa directly from an international flight. Regroup at Mfuwe Lodge, enjoy the lodge and ease into the amazing safari that awaits.

  • Major refurb of the reception, dining areas, library, deck, pool and rooms.
  • NEW Family Villa, with 2 en-suite bedrooms and private guide and vehicle - min 4 adults, from US$ 550/adult sharing.
  • NEW photographic studio, with photographic workshop facilities.


Within easy reach of Mfuwe Lodge, Kuyenda is undergoing upgrades and a market repositioning when it reopens in mid June.

  • A 5th chalet makes this camp ideal for groups of friends or extended families travelling together. Accommodates a max 10 guests.
  • Along with the additional chalet is a second guide & 4x4 in camp.
  • Refurb of the main area, and the bucket showers will be replaced with hot and cold running water in the en-suite bathrooms.
  • Starting RATES lower than other Bushcamps, from US$ 550 pps (shoulder season) to US$620 pps (peak season)


Perfect for romance in the bush, Kapamba's two salas are being configured into a romantic raised sleepout deck with toilet underneath. Who doesn't love sleeping under the stars and having a loo right there in the middle of the night?

  • Cool off in the NEW rim-flow pool in the main deck which will overlook the Kapamba River for the ultimate refreshing dip with a view.
  • The 2 salas will double as a raised sleepout deck, with a loo underneath.
  • All 4 rooms are getting a refurb with sunken bathtubs replaced by large double showers.
  • Due to the refurb, Kapamba will open 2 weeks later than usual, on 27 April.
  • RATES from US$ 590 pps (shoulder season) to US$780 pps (peak season)


  • PHOTOGRAPHIC VEHICLES — in addition to the studio at Mfuwe Lodge, the new photographic vehicles have their sides removed so that photographers can get right on the floor of the vehicle for that perfect angle.
  • YOGA — mindfulness in the bush, available at both Mfuwe Lodge and the Bushcamps (subject to availability of the instructors).


  • The Bushcamp Company still operates the longest season in the Luangwa, with camps open from April to January every season.
  • With PEAK SAFARI SEASON RATES coming in at US$ 780 per person per night and taking into consideration the exceptional game viewing together with the camp design and style, this is undoubtedly one of the best-value safaris in Africa.

The South Luangwa is phenomenal for wildlife, and The Bushcamp Company has a privileged position in the far south of the park where no other guests traverse. With 6 camps to combine and a longer operating season than anyone else, availability can always be figured out. We love these camps for stylish comfort in the wild.

São Tomé and Príncipe

Príncipe is an adventure. A tiny island topped by a canopy of green broken by spires of primordial rock, join us to discover this magnificent lost world, offering fantastic beaches, jungle exploration, snorkelling, fishing and birdwatching.

As the smaller, northern major island of the country of São Tomé and Príncipe lying off the west coast of Africa in the Gulf of Guinea, Príncipe has an area of 136 square kilometres (53 sq mi) and a population of approximately 7,000. The island is a heavily eroded volcano speculated to be over three million years old. Here you will discover a place that time forgot and where you feel you have stepped off the edge of the world. It is distinctively West African with a very strong Portuguese influence and this gives it a rhythm of its own which sets it apart from any experiences in East and Southern African.


Azura Benguerra Island

Azura Benguerra is an eco-friendly award winning boutique hotel in the uniquely beautiful, undiscovered country of Mozambique. Nestled along the beach offering all the creature comforts you could wish for: private sparkling pools, Mozambican butler-hosts to look after your every need, fresh seafood straight from the ocean and a relaxing African spa. With just 20 luxury beachfront villas hand built by the local community and no shops on the island, a stay at Azura Benguerra allows you to truly escape. Azura Retreats' vision was to provide the ultimate in private luxury hideaways in stunning undiscovered destinations which they have achieved with Azura Benguerra.
