We have just returned from Zambia which included 3nights at BPC. Brilliant, a tremendous house team lead by a superb Camp Mangager. So comfortable whilst remaining friendly and informal, we really felt like part of a family. Stunning location one of the world' stop locations. Great variety of game with the plains almost to ourselves. Great safari guide knowledgable to... More

Hello there, So sorry for the late response to your wonderful review! As you well know our internet is not the best out here.

As fairly regular visitors to Southern Africa, we have visited a number of wildlife areas, particularly in Zambia - Mukambi twice. Setting, staff and facilities cannot be faulted. This time we stayed in one of the tent lodges and would highly recommend them. Once inside it is difficult to believe that the walls are canvas.

This lodge is probably the most special one we ever visited. The tents are huge, very comfortable, have good beds and a fantastic view from the veranda. The staff is very friendly, the food is delicious and the guides are very good. Since we visited the lodge in the low season, we were all by ourselves in the park, most... More

We fell in love with Mukambi when we first visited in 2013. The management team's hands-on approach and genuine hospitality makes every stay amazing. Perfect for a romantic getaway or a fun weekend with friends. My suggestion is to stay in one of their luxury tents, they are on the river bank with an open air bath tub on the... More

The trip was planned for our family and there was no disappointment. Nice accommodation was prepared for us and we had a very comfortable stay. The highlights were certainly the game drives and the food! Great sightings of unusual game, bush pigs in broad daylight! Cheetah with sundowners! Certainly will be back!

We were expecting luxury accommodation but got fairly basic instead. The food left much to be desired. A barbecue offered was awful! The laundry service is patchy although, to be fair it was the rainy season. If you stay here take plenty of underwear! Hot water is variable & the odds of getting a good shower are slim. I suspect...

We have just had four nights at Mukambi, and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were helpful and friendly, and the guides. Akim, Nelson and Frazer, were excellent, informative and patient, and did their best to find us game. As it is the wet season this was no mean task with everything so green and lush.
