#24 of 45 Specialty lodging in South Luangwa National Park
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).

HOW THINGS USED TO BE! Review of Kuyenda Bushcamp - The Bushcamp Company This is my second visit to Kuyena and it certainly will not be my last. Kuyenda is THE bush camp experience!! Rebuilt every year with eco friendly thatch materials and nestling among trees on the edge of the savannah, it’s isolated rustic 1960’s charm accentuates the fact you are entirely in the Bush. Kick off your shoes and Feel the white sand slipping through your toes around the main reception/dining area sipping a Gin and Tonic watching the sun go down and elephant and buffalo disappearing across the open grassland. As at every Bushcamp Company camp I have had the immense pleasure of staying in the Staff are warm, friendly and professional and ensure your stay is a memorable one while Manager/Host Jacob ensures everything is as you would wish. The Rondavels (circular thatched huts) are simply furnished with rush matting on the floor and a beautifully comfortable double bed where you can watch the moon rising through the wide meshed panoramic window. The open aired secure bathroom is adjoining and while there is no running hot water within 20 minutes hot water is delivered to the holding tank ready for your shower and provided for your morning wash. Meals are all Cordon Bleur standard served under the amazing starlit sky by candlelight with after dinner coffee around the fire. All this accompanied by the soft sounds of the Bush….the distant roar of lions, laughing hyena or the muffled cough of leopard or just Silence!! No need to worry about safety with an alert watchman and within a circle of hurricane lamps. Wildlife viewing is amazing as there is a natural spring fed area near the camp so encouraging all manner of wildlife and whilst on your safari you will encounter an amazing variety hopefully including leopard, lion and wilddog. If they are around Suzyo your incredible guide will spot them ! His knowledge and expertise is amazing. Thanks to the Bushcamp Company for adding even more happy memories.

We arrived at the airport and were driven to Mfuwe Lodge. It was now evening and a guide called Elijah he was very knowledgeable and so enthusiastic took us to Kuyenda camp, on route he spotted so many animals from hippo, giraffe, mongoose, a four toed elephant shrew and many more it was a great start to a lovely holiday. Kuyenda camp was perfect, rustic, clean where you felt at one with nature, from the guide called Alec who was great and taught us so much about the animals, through to the staff and fantastic food! Our next camp was Zugulilia where we spent one night, unfortunately not long enough! beautiful huge oversized bathtub outside on your verandah where you can watch the animals, again great informative guide Michak (so sorry if I spelt your name wrong) so friendly and helpful and great spotting of animals. Finally back to Mfuwe for three nights - lovely guide Jason who took us on some great drives seeing leopard, lions, buffalo and much more, also really lovely seeing the nearby town and school, food was great including friendly staff - great holiday!

A wonderful place in the bush. So much wildlife. Brilliant guides and simple but excellent facilities. Food is superb and service, including laundry, excellent and included in the price. The game drives were so good. 5 lions within 20 minutes o the first one and later 3 leopards plus a group of wild dogs. What more could you ask!

I visited 3 of the bushcamps during this trip and this was easily my favourite . More rustic and intimate than the others. Impeccable guiding and hosting from Susio, Jacob, Boniface, Aaron and the rest of the boys. Lovely wee chalets in a pretty setting . Excellent food. Excellent wildlife and activities . I was woken in the middle of the night by Ginger the lion roaring loudly outside the chalet #safariproblems. My husband got his torch out and we could see Ginger from our bed! My only teeny tiny suggestion would be to have some of the sisal type mats that are in the chalet in the bathroom too. I may just be a bit messy but I seemed to manage to bring lots of sand into the chalet and also bed on a regular basis. I’ll be back .

Kuyenda is a traditional bush camp but with all the comforts you could need and want in the bush. The huts are well appointed, big and airy, with large comfy beds and outdoor bathroom (connected to the room and safely closed up). When you wake up in the morning, the first thing you see are the amazing colors of dawn. Jacob is a great host, catering to all your needs and Susio is an enthusiastic and very competent guide. It was a pleasure to be with both. Animals were plentiful and we spent lots of time with a group of lioness and their cubs of 3 different ages. A great camp and an amazing safari!
