Activities at Island Bush Camp

Game Drives

Game Drives

Although Island Bush Camp focuses activities on bush walks, a vehicle is based at camp and game drives can also be organised to complement walks, and most specifically after the sundowner, guests can enjoy a night drive back to camp.

Vehicles with shade roof, maximum 8 clients on the vehicle.

Walking Safaris

Walking Safaris

Island Bush Camp enjoys a pure and remote wilderness area in the South Luangwa National Park to enjoy walks morning and afternoon.

Bush walks bring a different experience to the safari, focusing on smaller animals, critters, birds and flora. Bigger animals are also often seen such as elephants, giraffes, antelopes and occasionally predators such as lions, leopards and wild dogs.

Certified safari guide and escort scout provided.

Unfortunately children under the age of 12 are not authorised on bush walks.

Restaurants at Island Bush Camp

Island Bush Camp Dining

Dining at Island Bush Camp takes place in the shade of the grass roof or under the stars on the banks of the Luangwa River. Stellar meals come out of the bush kitchen which can be visited at the end of the stay. An early continental breakfast is taken by the fire place before heading on the bush walk. A buffet lunch is served at midday and a fine dinner served in the evening before retreating to the fire place for a nightcap. Island Bush Camp can cater for most dietaries.
