A charming and rustic camp that offers a true taste of the African bush with one of the Luangwa’s premier guides at its helm. Set beneath shady trees by the Manzi River, it is the simplest of the Bushcamp Company camps but Kuyenda embodies the authentic charm of old Africa with its cluster of traditional thatched grass huts and back-to-nature feel. Looking out over an open grassy plains area, game can often be watched from the camp itself. There are many diverse landscapes within walking distance of the camp including salt pans, dry river beds, mopane woodland, the Luangwa River and the open plains. Kuyenda is not in walking distance from the other bush camps – so is an ideal start or end to a safari with The Bushcamp Company.
Run by Babette Alfieri and Phil Berry, one of Zambia’s most experienced guides, you will be in extremely good hands here and have personal service at its best. (when Phil is on leave, another guide from The Bushcamp Company’s excellent and experienced team will be on hand).
