Kuyenda Bushcamp, South Luangwa National Park, Zambia
Kuyenda is a wonderful bushcamp situated in a very remote area of the park on the banks of the Manzi River. The accommodation consists of four thatched rondavels made entirely of local material - reed, thatch and wood. The chalets are rustic but very comfortable and offer an authentic bush experience. Large spacious beds, with mosquito netting and colourful covers, an abundance of storage space and all facilities en-suite (shower, toilet and washbasin). The bathroom is open to the stars and you need to order the hot water for the shower in advance thus epitomising what a safari is all about. The main dining area, sitting room and bar are in a small open fronted thatched structure in the centre of the small camp and this is the nucleus of all activities.
As Kuyenda, like all the camps, is inside the National Park itself, big game action happens on your doorstep. It is a wonderful walking area and activities are tailored to the client needs. For many years Phil Berry has been hosting and guiding at Kuyenda. Phil has spent the last 30 years directly involved in Zambia's wildlife. He personally guides the walks himself at Kuyenda and a walk with Phil is as enthralling as it is interesting. He ensures that everyone gets a unique insight into this very special place. With Phil's unmatched knowledge and the unbeatable camp atmosphere, each client leaves with a great desire to return. As well as walking safaris it is also possible to enjoy game drives in open 4WDs and night drives.
