Island Bush Camp

This small, personalised camp lies under a grove of Mahogany trees on the only habitable island in the Luangwa River. Island Bush Camp offers rustic accommodation in grass/reed huts, with the modern comforts of hot showers and running water.

Each stilted chalet, with open frontage has a private verandah overlooking the Luangwa River. This means that you really do get up close and personal with the wildlife. The Island Bush Camp is just two hours drive south of Kafunta River Lodge in a very remote game-rich area of the southern section of the Park. In this complete solitude, far away from other operators, there are exclusive walking safaris on offer. And for the more adventurous, Kafunta Safaris also offer portered Safaris from Island Bush Camp. Island Bush Camp is seasonal - the entire camp is constructed each year and is open from 20th May to 31st October only.
