The Time + Tide story celebrates passion and collaboration, uniting properties in Zambia to highlight their unique natural beauty.

Beginning in the 1950s with Norman Carr’s walking safaris in Zambia’s South Luangwa Valley, and continuing with the Liebenberg family’s Chongwe showcase in the 1990s, the story extends to their efforts to fulfill a dream of preserving this exceptional location. Zambia. Each site requires dedication to biodiversity protection and sustainable economic development to safeguard the natural heritage in the areas where their camps are located, namely, the Lower Zambezi and South Luangwa.

This surprise offering is a wonderful way for guests to enjoy small moments while soaking up every element of being in these wild spaces.

The inception of The Bushcamp Company dates back to 1999, marking the consolidation of four distinct camps: the established Kuyenda and Chamilandu, along with the newer Chindeni and Bilimungwe, all unified under the single Bushcamp Company entity alongside the pre-existing Mfuwe Lodge. Subsequently, the fifth bushcamp, Kapamba, graced the banks of the Kapamba River in 2005, followed by the establishment of Zungulila upstream on the same river in 2008. Under the helm of Andy Hogg, a local Zambian, The Bushcamp Company is dedicated to ensuring that their camps and all other facets of tourism work together to support and sustain both the wildlife and local communities.
