This is a nature-lover’s paradise, and with Manda Chisanga, Bilimungwe’s award-winning resident guide, to lead you, you could not be in better hands.

The lounge and dining area is built on stilts around a large old termite mound under an ancient mahogany tree which provides ample shade from the hot sunshine. Bilimungwe has a secret breakfast spot on the edge of Luangwa Valley which is perfect to watch the sun rise over the Chindeni hills. Bilimungwe sleeps up to eight guests in 4 tents and is open from May to December.

Bilimungwe’s four raised thatched rooms have been carefully designed to ensure the height of comfort while still retaining that authentic bush camp feel. Each tents has magnificent views of one or two of the three watering holes. The tangle of mature mahogany trees that surround camp are echoed in the rich, wood interiors and the beautiful wooden furniture which are handmade by local artisans. Bright African textiles bring splashes of color to the elegant rooms. After an early morning game drive, head back to your room for a refreshing, open-air waterfall shower, or continue the wildlife spectacle from your private deck.
