Bilimungwe, South Luangwa National Park, Zambia
Bilimungwe is situated 50 km from the Mfuwe area, heading south along the picturesque banks of the Luangwa River. Nestled in riverine forest in a remote area of the park, the camp specialises in walking safaris but can also accommodate excellent game viewing by vehicle. In 2011 it was completely re-built and now consists of four huge reed and thatch chalets with en-suite shower, toilet and double vanities. Each is beautifully furnished with queen beds, large mosquito nets and a writing desk inside.
The dining area and fully stocked bar are constructed on raised decking area, with views of Bilimungwe's permanent water hole and the abundant game that it attracts. The thatched canopy provides a cool and comfortable environment in which to enjoy this idyllic setting. From camp you can enjoy sundowners in the clear shallow waters of the Kapamba River, only a short walk away from Bilimungwe and then take in a night drive back for dinner.
It is a great place to enjoy this lovely part of the park and there is plenty of wildlife wandering through camp at pretty much any time of the day.
