Set beneath shady trees by the Manzi River, Kuyenda may be the simplest of our camps but Kuyenda embodies the authentic charm of old Africa with its cluster of traditional thatched grass huts and back-to-nature feel. Kuyenda has recently been refurbished to a very high standard.

Kuyenda Bushcamp - South Luangwa Nationa

As for the wildlife, you hardly need look for it as it will come to you. Settle down in the lounge and look out over the rippling grasses of the neighbouring plain where the drama of the African wilderness is played out each day.

Kuyenda’s intimate atmosphere is only enhanced by the extraordinary couple who regularly run the camp – the ever-hospitable Babette Alfieri and Phil Berry, one of Zambia’s most experienced guides. No-one knows Kuyenda like they do, and no-one will make you feel more welcome.
