3 NIGHTs

SUGGESTED: Chamilandu or Chindeni 

While the name “Bushcamps” may be misleading, these are super chic camps, each with an individual style. As the safari industry becomes increasingly commoditised, it is refreshing to find a balanced safari style that combines the cocooning of luxury and safety with wild, connected safaris. With The Bushcamp Company’s expert guides you not only see Africa from a vehicle, but step off and feel, hear and smell Africa on foot.

Between Chindeni and Bilimungwe there is an option to walk (3,5 hours) with an experienced guide between the camps. This is a truly fabulous experience and your bags will be taken ahead by car.

Alternatively is is a game drive transfer from either Chamilanu or Chindeni to Bilimungwe or Kapamba.
