Visited Kuyenda followed by Bili recently. Kuyenda was so wonderful we would not hesitate in visiting again and again. This is such a special place. Service was excellent and the food was amazing. We would rate the guides, camp staff and managers all 10/10. We were never short of game sightings-so many leopards! The tent was rustic and comfortable. We... More

I have never been anywhere so peaceful in my entire life. this place is heaven on Earth! The staff and service was AMAZING. So glad we decided to stay there. Definitely recommend it to anyone that needs to really get away and just find themselves.

South Luangwa is surely THE place for prolific wildlife, especially leopards. We saw 14 in 7 nights. Kuyenda is THE place to see them but really also to appreciate true bush style in every respect. The Bush Camp Company operate a first rate selection of rustic camps with great efficiency and warmth. Phil and Babette here at Kuyenda offer unparalleled... More

We enjoyed too much this lodge with special touchs like to have your hot water in the morning on the window of the bathroom. This old african style lodge has particular amazing things to discover and appreciate. Sleeping in the open savana on this rustic lodge was just a piece of paradise. Quite with huge view we had a lot... More

I've been on seven different safari trips and Kuyenda is the only camp I've returned to a second time - it's that special. The setting and accommodations are beyond lovely. Babette and Phil are the best hosts you could ever wish for (they tell such great stories!) and the staff is outstanding. My only "complaint" is the food, it was... More

I have never written a trip advisor review before but this place deserves it. This was our second time on safari and Babette and Phil blew us away with their lodge and hospitality. From home to another home, Babette, Phil and the staff make you feel you have been there forever and nothing is ever a problem. It is difficult... More

This was our first stop in Zambia, and it was a great experience. I was told that the camp ,due to seasonal flooding, must be rebuilt each year. In spite of that the individual rooms are "bush luxury" with reed and thatch composition, straw mats, local woods, fabrics and artifacts, and the most comfortable beds.There is an attached enclosed but...

Babette and Phil were lovely hosts, the whole staff committed and friendly. Tastefully furnished and comfortable "tents" in combination with excellent food. Remarkable walking and 4WD safaris with lots of wildlife including lions.

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set beneath shady trees by the Manzi River, it may be the simplest of The Bushcamp Company's bushcamps, but Kuyenda embodies the authentic charm of old Africa with its cluster of traditional thatched grass huts and back-to-nature feel and Phil Berry, one of the Luangwa’s premier guides, at its helm. Camp can accommodate up to eight guests in four rustic thatched rondavels and offers guided walking safaris, plus day and night game drives (open from June to November). ... more   less
