There’s always a warm welcome at Bilimungwe. The heart of camp is the rustic lounge area set beneath a huge winterthorn tree and looking out over a shady waterhole – an establishment favoured by local warthogs, elephant and other thirsty game.

The buzzing outdoor eating area with its unique open-air kitchen (the only 'bistro' in the park!) is the perfect spot for a lively barbecue in the heart of the African wilderness. When it comes to wildlife-watching at Bilimungwe, it's hard to know where to look first - choose from the tangle of mahogany trees surrounding camp, the nearby plain where leopard prowl, the popular waterhole, or the open waters of the Luangwa River.

Bilimungwe's four thatched brick-and-grass chalets have been effortlessly styled to blend with the surrounding landscape. The dark wood of the surrounding trees is echoed in the wooden furniture and rich colour scheme to create warm and cosy rooms that stave off the chill of an African night. Each has a private porch that looks out onto the peaceful neighbouring plain, an ensuite bathroom and twin beds (queen-sized beds). Bilimungwe sleeps up to eight guests.

Put simply, this is a nature-lover's paradise, and with Manda Chisanga - Bilimungwe's award-winning resident guide - to lead you, you could not be in better hands.

Why We Love It

There is a fantastic water hole in front of the camp that attracts plenty of game, in particular a rather friendly resident elephant…
