Upon my arrival at Kuyenda I was immediately struck by the simple rustic elegance of the camp: the excitement I felt at being back in the bush and the feeling that this was a special place. And special it was. Phil and Babette are wonderfully warm hosts with infinite knowledge of everything wild. My rondaval (thatched dwelling) was immaculate and... More

My clients and I had a fantastic couple of days in Kuyenda. While many safari operators are trying to outdo each other with fancy camps and fancy amenities, Kuyenda is a huge breath of fresh air. This is my third stay at this camp (first with clients) and I have to say this remains my favorite of the Bushcamp Company's... More

This bushcamp, the most basic- rustic in South Luangwa Zambia camps combines simplicity with elegance with a private historical romantic story of the owners that can make a Hollywood best seller movie , and the wildlife presented to you as...

Kuyenda is the AUTHENTIC bush camp. We slept between two conversing lions in the distance, bush buck grazing at our door, elephants skirting the premises, a leopard chase behind the camp. Babette and Phil are consummate hosts with fascinating stories to tell of years in the bush. Suzyo is a spectacular guide who knew the answer to every question I... More

This is a beautiful camp, in a great wildlife area, hosted by Phil and Babette who are legends, perfect hosts and 30 year residents in South Luangua. Had great walking, driving and night driving experiences here - very much looking forward to coming back to this lovely camp.

Our family just returned from our second safari to Zambia. This was our second stay at Kuyenda. It was so marvelous we couldn't wait to return. Phil and Babette are the consummate hosts. They are so knowledgeable about the history of the country and current events particularly concerning wildlife. Our game drives were always rewarding and exciting. You cannot expect... More

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

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

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
