Director’s House is on the grounds of Mfuwe Lodge. It overlooks two lagoons in the game-rich, Mfuwe area of the South Luangwa National Park, Zambia. You reach Director’s House by road in just 40 minutes from Mfuwe International Airport. This makes it possible to do a game drive on your first evening in Zambia; this is a real highlight for those who are short on time and want to get out there and see wildlife immediately.
The Bushcamp Company is long established in South Luangwa and dreamt up the idea of opening the Director’s House back in 2018, with the finishing touches made in 2020. It has two modern, colourful and clean-cut bedrooms with space for two additional beds. Both rooms are en-suite and for those who have mobility concerns, they both include a walk-in shower. It’s these little touches that make the Bushcamp Company such superior safari providers.
Perhaps the main perk to staying at the Director’s House is your private guide and vehicle for safari outings. Of course, you might be lucky enough to spot some exceptional wildlife from the comfort of your veranda or pool, but when heading into the National Park on a game drive or walk, it will be a private experience.
Unlike some other lodges and more temporary tented camps in South Luangwa National Park, Director’s House is open year-round so will especially suit guests looking to travel in the Green Season. Electricity runs 24 hours a day and the hot water is solar powered (with mains backup).
A stay at the Director’s House is best at the start of your visit to South Luangwa, but could be combined with a few nights at a Bushcamp further south which has a different feel, atmosphere and landscape to explore.
