Gather around for the latest updates


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)

MFUWE LODGE

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.

WHAT'S NEW AT THE LODGE?
  • 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.

KUYENDA BUSHCAMP

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

WHAT'S THE PLAN FOR KUYENDA?
  • 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)

KAPAMBA BUSHCAMP

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?

WHAT'S NEW AT KAPAMBA?
  • 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)

NEW FOR MFUWE LODGE & ALL BUSHCAMPS

  • 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).

& FINALLY, WHAT HASN'T CHANGED?

  • 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.

Republic of the Congo & Central African Republic

WHAT WE LOVE: The Republic of the Congo and Central African Republic, both former French colonies, are 2 of the 6 countries across which the Congo Basin expands. Second in size to the mighty Amazon, the forests of the Congo Basin contain the greatest number of mammals, primates, birds, amphibians, fish and swallowtail butterflies in Africa. More than a 1,000 species of bird can be found here. The basin is a total of 3.7 million km2 and is home to some of the largest undisturbed stands of tropical rainforest on the planet, in addition to large wetlands. Connecting two of the most iconic locations - Odzala-Kokoua and Dzanga-Sangha National Parks - within this rainforest wilderness offers the most exciting opportunity to discover a part of Africa in a truly pioneering way, while making a significant contribution to the long-term conservation and community sustainability of this region. This is no longer the 'Heart of Darkness'. This is Africa unmasked, beautiful and powerful. This is the most exciting destination to be opening to tourism. This is CONGO CONSERVATION COMPANY waiting for you to discover the most remarkable and unspoilt natural wonders of the continent.
