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.

For the 2020 safari season Kayenda will have an extra chalet so the camp can accommodate a maximum of 10 guests. There'll also be an additional guide and additional safari vehicle. The main area will undergo a complete refurb and the bucket showers in the chalets will be replaced with hot and cold running water. Photographic vehicles will be rolled out to all Bushcamp Company camps along with yoga classes.
