Kuyenda Camp

Luangwa Valley

Rating: Deluxe    

Kuyenda Camp overview

Kuyenda in South Luangwa National Park is nestled amongst shady trees on the banks of the seasonal Manzi River. The area along the dry river bed and the adjoining flood plains are excellent walking territory. It is one of the camps of The Bushcamp Company.

Accommodation is in four authentic thatched rondavels containing large spacious beds, mosquito netting and en-suite facilities including shower, toilet and wash basin, the hot water is heated on demand on a fire and carried by wheelbarrow to your room. The central dining area, lounge and bar overlook a grassy plain with abundant wildlife where the drama of wild Africa plays out before you.

Top Zambian guide, Phil Berry has called the Luangwa Valley home for over 40 years and is based at Kuyenda camp with his wife Babette. They are excellent hosts. To walk amongst wildlife big and small with the security of an expert naturalist and armed guard dramatically heightens the senses and creates exciting experiences not possible in a vehicle. Whether you choose walking safaris, day and night game drives or both, Phil's knowledge and years of experience will guarantee you one of the best safaris ever.

Hazel Jacklin (14/06/2010)

"Kuyenda was the perfect camp to end our safari. As first-time safari-ists, we may have felt a bit exposed in the isolated grass huts if we had gone here first. By the end of the trip we had enough experience of animal behaviour, so, when a herd of elephants started feeding just a few metres away in the very early hours of our last morning, we were excited rather than scared that there was very little of substance between them and us! However, it was far from basic as each hut had a flushing toilet (open to the sky) and hot water for your shower could be pre-booked whenever you wanted it. Babette and Phil were very gracious and attentive hosts. Both had lots of entertaining stories and were skilled in checking that each guest was comfortable and happy. The food here was very good, with plenty of variety and options at each meal. The area around Kuyenda was the most attractive of all the places we stayed. The guiding was excellent. Phil took us out for the first evening and Gilbert looked after us during the rest of our stay – our last morning with Gilbert was our favourite of all the bush walks of the holiday."

Julie Croucher, Tribes
"Phil Berry's guiding in Luangwa is legendary and rightly so!  I was amazed ... this quiet unassuming gentleman is totally at one with the bush, walking with him was a pleasure and we saw so much.  After dark he would just turn off the engine and sit in total silence for ages, listening to the night sounds and locating specific animals.  Kuyenda is not for the faint hearted, it IS a bush camp, lots of insects around but I really loved it, if you like being in remote places and guiding is important to you, stay here."
