Island Bush Camp - Kafunta Safaris

Set under the shade of ancient mahogany trees on the banks of the Luangwa River, our authentic Zambian bush camp is the gateway to one of the most remote and unspoilt areas of South Luangwa National Park. Island Bush Camp offers a pure wilderness experience with walking safaris at the core of its activities. You will have the park to yourself!

Island Bush Camp

Island Bush Camp is a charming authentic camp, located well off the beaten tracks and immersed in pure wilderness. The camp is set under the cool shade of old mahogany trees on the banks of the Luangwa River.

With views stretching from the Chindeni Hills in the Eastern corner 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 and wild environment.

At Island Bush Camp, each of the five chalets are completely open to the front with 180- degree views over the river, allowing the sounds of the bush to drift through. Made out of natural material and safely built high off the ground, the chalets feature an en-suite bathroom with a traditional bucket shower.

The camp’s atmosphere is laid back, giving us a chance to completely disconnect from our hectic lifestyles while concentrating on what the surrounding nature has to offer, whether on walks or drives or when relaxing by the fireplace.

Island Bush Camp is one of Kafunta Safaris’ three properties and benefits from the same standards and attention to details. It is best combined with a stay at Kafunta River Lodge and Three Rivers Camp. Walks are possible between Three Rivers Camp and Island Bush Camp as a mean of transfer.
