Another of the Bushcamp Company properties is Bilimungwe, an award-winning Bushcamp lying near both the Luangwa River and an open plain where leopards prowl.
Nestled in riverine forest in a remote area of the park, the camp specializes in walking safaris but can also accommodate excellent game viewing by vehicle.
Besides having the Luangwa River on its doorstep, Bilimungwe Camp also has three watering holes. One waterhole is occupied by "Harry the hippo'', who's made Bilimungwe his home since he was a young hippo. The watering holes and lagoon attract large families of elephants and other wildlife like impala, puku, warthog, kudu, and baboons.
Walking safaris are particularly popular in the morning, combined with an afternoon/ night game drive as the day's finale. Just like the wildlife in their surrounding habitats, you’ll feel very comfortable and relaxed at this charming camp. Bilimungwe Bushcamp has just four chalets. These spacious and luxurious structures are set beneath shady mahogany trees that help to keep the rooms cool, even through the hottest months. All four chalets include en-suite facilities, gorgeous open-air showers, and views from a private verandah across one or two of the three waterholes.
In the heart of Bilimungwe is the cool, shady lounge and a dining area built on stilts around an old termite mound with magical views of the surrounding landscape. Gourmet meals, a cornerstone of the Bilimungwe experience, vary from authentic bush barbecues to a make-your-own-pizza lunch. For the ultimate relaxation, a brief walk from Bilimungwe brings you to the clear shallow waters of the Kapamba River, where you can enjoy cocktails as the sunsets.
