Kuyenda was our first Safari adventure and we are spoiled for life. Phil and Babette are the most incredible hosts. From the moment we arrived we felt we belonged. Phil’s depth of knowledge and legendary experience could be intimidating, yet he has the most unassuming style and is very easy to relate with. Couple this with Babette’s charm and genuine... More

We stayed at Kuyenda at the end of our Luangwa trip, after Mfuwe Lodge, Bilimungwe and Chindeni. It's not as luxurious as the other camps, which are superb, but just felt right. Unlike the other camps which have permanent tents with timber floors, balconies, hammocks and the like, here you stay in a ground level straw rondavel with no blinds,... More

Perfect location great food great hosts you just cannot get it out of your system sheer comfort.We used to have our early morning game drive and walk and return back to camp and just felt so relaxed knowing that we would be doing...

This was our absolutely favourite place and the closest we came to feeling we were living in the wild. We were lucky to keep Gilbert our guide from Kampamba, and he drove us to Kuyenda. The sorgem reed rondavals are wonderfully integrated into the trees, so we felt very close to nature. We only had hurricane lamps and solar lights... More

We were in Kuyenda about 10 days ago for a three day visit. It was the highlight of our trip to the South Luanguwa national park. Simple but luxurious facilities with the bathroom open to the sky and a herd of Zebra in front of our chalet most of the time. Do not even think about going if you need... More

It’s been three weeks since we left Kuyenda, and I find myself staring at our photos with longing, wishing that our vacation had never ended – Kuyenda was that special. The accommodations were cozy, spotlessly clean, and super comfortable, with breath-taking views. Our room’s open-air bathroom with soothing sand underfoot bolstered the bush camp feel, yet somehow seemed both luxurious... More

This bushcamp is situated close to a dry riverbed with the chalets overlooking a grassy floodplain. Of the three bushcamps that I stayed at, in South Luangwa, this was the most rustic. The chalets are small reed and thatch with attached bathroom/loo open to the sky. Three are located on one side of the reception while the fourth one is... More

What a place. If you want something a little more outback, rustic or bushy then this is the place. All the comforts just a little close to nature try this. The food was amazing. Clean and very comfortable and more big Cats than I thought possible. Susio was the best guide I have ever met and I've met plenty. So... More

This camp was my favorite of the five bushcamps that I stayed in while in Zambia recently. It is both rustic and homey, nicely decorated and simple. Phil Berry, Babette Alfieri, and the camp staff made our stay feel like we were guests in their home - all were very friendly, extremely accommodating, provided excellent meals, and seemed to go...
