Bilimungwe Bush Camp

At the heart of Bilimungwe Bush Camp's warm welcome is the luscious lounge area, which basks beneath a huge winterthorn tree. The views from here are nothing short of spectacular and looking out over the waterhole, chances are very good you will spot local warthogs, elephant and other thirsty game.

The open-sided bar and dining area is raised on wooden decks between the trunks of tall winterthorn and mahogany trees, and also allow for glimpses of the popular waterhole.

Since the camp was named for the local word for chameleon, a large carved chameleon enjoys centre stage among scatterings of comfy canvas safari chairs. The adjacent small boma has been christened "Joes Bistro" (it was named after a member of staff who had the idea for the boma) and here, mouthwatering traditional African meals can be sampled.
Four comfortable chalets made of cane and reeds are on offer at this camp, and each of the units feature two queen-size double beds, thatched roofs, en-suite showers and twin washbasins.

With shady mahogany trees embracing the chalets, the rooms are always wonderfully cool, even during the most swelteringly hot months, while large mosquito nets keep the bugs at bay. Bright and colourful linen in African reds and rich browns are matched with bold batiks to achieve the cosy charm that is so typical of this camp.

Walking safaris are all the rage here, with guided safari drives and spot-lit night drives also being on offer, and the best way to appreciate the best of both worlds is to endeavour two activities a day - one walk and one game drive.

Visitors to Bilimungwe are thoroughly spoilt for choice when it comes to game viewing - boasting nearby plains where leopard prowl, popular waterholes, and the wildlife-rich banks of the Luangwa River.
