Island Bush Camp

A Zambian Bush Camp Offering an Authentic Wilderness Safari

Island Bush Camp offers untouched wilderness and walking safaris in the heart of South Luangwa National Park, Zambia. This authentic Zambian bush camp is set under the cool shade of old mahogany trees on the banks of the Luangwa River.

With views that stretch from the Chindeni hills in the Eastern corners of the Luangwa Valley to the Muchinga escarpment in the West, you are presented with the complete natural boundary of this remote and achingly beautiful wilderness. Every day is presented with new experiences and never the same.

Island Bush Camp is located around 3 hours South of Island Bush Camp. On the way to reach this safari bush camp, you drive through the South Luangwa National Park, passing through woodland and open plains.

Far from the well-beaten tracks, Island Bush Camp offers complete solitude.

Bush Camp Chalets

Island Bush Camp has just 5 bush chalets tastefully decorated in a simple, chic bush style. They are open to the front with stunning views over the river and allow the sounds of the bush to drift through. Each chalet is built out of natural materials and sits on a wooden platform high off the ground. Cozy beds are turned down each night behind tented mozzie nets.

Each chalet has an en suite bathroom on the same level as the rooms also facing the river. The bathroom is open to the sky, with a stylish and practical canvas bucket shower, that is filled with hot water once a day. There is cold running water and flush toilets.

Bush Camp Area

The shady lounge area is the focal point of the camp, with comfortable chairs and attentive staff behind the bar. This is just the perfect place to relax with binoculars at hand to take a closer look at any of the passers-by on ‘bush TV’. The fireplace right at the riverfront is the ideal place to watch the sunrise and fall. Here you marvel at the galaxy of stars and spend the evening listing 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 Zambian 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!

Walking Safaris

Walking safaris are our main activity in this heavenly place. This is your chance to explore the bush on a different level. You walk in small groups and will be escorted by an armed official wildlife scout and our experienced guides. This ensures your safety and gives you an exciting and educational view of the bush at ground level.

You will find that your senses are heightened to the sights and sounds of your surroundings. Encounters can vary from a chance meeting with elephants to sitting and watching a cloud of Carmine bee-eaters coming and going from their seasonal colonies on the high sandbanks of the Luangwa River.

Although the main activity at Island Bush Camp is walking safaris, we do also use a safari vehicle to get into a variety of walking areas or return from a walk after dark to discover some of the nocturnal wildlife in the area.
