On the way to reach Island Bush Camp you drive through the National Park passing through woodland and open plains. Far from the well beaten tracks, Island Bush Camp offers complete solitude.
This authentic safari bush camp offers five twin rooms and is set under the cool shade of old mahogany trees on the banks of the Luangwa River with views that stretch from the Chendeni 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 is never the same.
