Kuyenda Bush Camp

Can anyone tell me about Kuyenda Bush Camp? I just heard from one of the wild dog researchers that I am working with for a "Painted Wolves" trip that I am leading to Zambia next July. We are changing to Kuyenda Bush Camp from Bilimungwe due to where the dogs have been frequenting this breeding season and I am interested in knowing more about Kuyenda. Thanks.

Hi there-- Kuyenda is great-- my favorite of the Bush Camp company camps, because of manager/guide Phil Berry. Phil has an positively encyclopedic knowledge of the Luangwa, and all the animals in the area. I am not kidding--phenomenal almost superhuman memory. (And of course also keeps written records) Whenever anyone wants to check on somethng (eg, how many sightings of X in the last Y years) they call Phil. Also a big plus: Phil leads all the walks (typically in the morning, and they are serious bush walks) and all the drives in the afternoon. Only 4 reed huts, but there may be a max of 6 guests, so a small intimate camp with one of the best guides in Africa. Excellent food and service of course. When I was there there were lots of lion, super leopard sighting and we saw an aardvark! Phil is a no-nonsense, crusty sort of guide but he is excellent. If there are wild dog there-- well couldn't be better!
