Bilimungwe, owned by The Bushcamp Company is a great little walking camp, well regarded as one of the best walking camps in the Luangwa. Adventurous safaris are guaranteed with award-winning guides, often spending subsequently large chunks of the day walking out of camp. It is one of the more elegant Luangwa bush camps – fantastic!
Bilimungwe - The Details
Bilimungwe is one of The Bushcamp Company's walking trail camps. The camp has just 4 rooms and is located in a wonderfully untouched area of the Luangwa. Designed to satisfy the serious walking client, the camp is for the more adventurous.
Bilimungwe is one of the southern most camps in the South Luangwa and is a 3 hour road transfer from Mfuwe airport. Set on the banks of the Luangwa River, nestled into the bush, Bilimungwe has a peaceful outlook over the permanent waterhole in front of the main dining and lounge area.
Camp is kept cool by the shade of the magnificent mahogany trees that provide the backdrop for this idyllic spot. Each of the recently re-done four reed and thatch chalets has en-suite showers, toilets, double vanities and an individual rechargeable lighting system, two chalets have twin queen-sized beds, with the other two being double king-sized beds. The natural new-look Bilimungwe introduces an organic feel to this stunning camp.
Guiding, as with all The Bushcamp Company camps, is set very high - specialist walking guides are on hand and game drives during the day and night are on offer.
