Kuyenda is one of the more rustic and traditional safari bushcamps in South Luangwa National Park. It’s situated in the south of the park under a grove of evergreen Natal mahogany trees, next to the Manzi River – which during the dry season is usually just a sandy riverbed. The emphasis tends to be on walking safaris in an area that is good for game viewing, whilst also being in a quieter part of the park.
Kuyenda is normally run by Phil Berry and his partner Babette Alfieri, and many visitors return here because of their personalities, their charm and the warmth of the welcome. Phil is one of the most knowledgeable guides in Africa, and has lived in the bush for nearly 40 years. He has an active, inquisitive mind which he has turned, over this time, to his great passion – the bush – keeping meticulous notes on all the information he gathers. Phil is a renowned expert on the endemic Thornicroft’s giraffe, and is able to recognise over 200 individuals by their neck markings.
