Island Bush Camp is located in a remote part of the Southern part of South Luangwa National Park offering untouched wilderness and walking safaris. This authentic safari bush camp is set under the cool shade of old mahogany trees on the banks of the Luangwa River. The shady lounge area is the focal point of the camp, with comfortable chairs and is the perfect place to relax with binoculars and take a closer look at any of the passers by on ‘bush TV’. The fireplace right at the river front is the ideal place to watch the sun rise and fall. Here you marvel at the galaxy of stars and spend the evening listening to the sounds of the wild or to the many bush tales the guides like to share with their guests.
The bush camp kitchen provides fantastic meals cooked on the wood burning stove and served in the dining area or under the African night sky. Early morning tea is taken around the campfire during sunrise where the bread is freshly toasted over the fire. There is no better way to start the day in the bush!
