Set in the beauty of the indigenous bush in Zambia, the Bush-Spa in South Luangwa National Park, creates a sanctuary of pure simplicity for those seeking tranquility and rejuvenation of mind, body and soul. 

".... a piece of heaven in what is paradise already"

Part of the stunning Mfuwe Lodge complex, a separate entrance leads you from the parking lot to the award winning Bush-Spa and as you enter through the exterior wooden doors you enter your own private world.

The sounds of the Fish Eagle crying for his partner, the grunts of the hippopotamus in the lagoon, aromatic herbal sticks and sweet smelling oil burners exuding exotic aromas.
The owner run Bush-Spa could not have a more convenient location. Game viewing can even continue while having a nice herbal bath or African foot reflexology massage!

On offer a selection of the best ancient healing treatments
in an unspoilt place where wild animals roam free.....

About  the Bush-Spa treatments
A relaxing holistic treatment is the ideal way to break up a tiring safari, with early morning and late afternoon activities often leaving ample time during mid day "siesta".
The setting is dreamy, on a secluded deck next to a lagoon that sees permanent heavy hippo traffic and a wide diversity of other animal visitors. This provides a unique soundtrack to your treatment, with the constant grunt and gurgle of hippo pods given a more musical backing by birdsong and antelope alarm calls.

I had the opportunity to get a massage at this amazing, perfectly located and nature embracing Spa.

Hippos in the background singing their grumpy songs and a well-educated staff made this a awesome experience.

My body has never felt so relaxed and zen like that moment.
Lovely, thanks! 

I made an appointment for a massage following two days at one of the camps at the suggestion of one of the lodge employees. It was terrific! The spa is wonderful, and I had a very relaxing massage. The treatment room overlooks the lagoon so I heard hippos, and a couple baboons scampered across the roof at one point! You can't find that just anywhere! It was a great experience and I highly recommend it! 

This is my 4th time at the lodge and it wouldn't be complete without our spa time. The girls are amazing after a morning on the safari vehicles the afternoon spa is a must. The serenity of the setting is perfect and so relaxing even the hippo's grunting and frolicking in the water below and the baboons racing across the roof all adds to the atmosphere, I cannot decide which I enjoyed the best massage, facial, pedi the works everything is amazing.

Time to book your Spa in South Luangwa

"It is magical. Highly recommended for a moment of relaxing after scaling the bumpy roads of the game drives"

  • The Bush-Spa has individual and couples’ treatment rooms, and an open air wet deck featuring a "lagoon tub" for heavenly aqua treatments.
  • All rooms are open-sided compartments that allow you to enjoy the living soundtrack and feel the natural breeze in your hair.
  • The treatment menu includes all the classic spa staples with a local twist, utilizing indigenous African oils and local techniques to offer intriguing options such as an African Goddess Anti-Ageing Facial, a Luangwa Valley Mud Wrap and the varied Big Five Pampering Aqua Packages.
  • The Bush-Spa is open daily during daylight hours.
  • Being located on an open deck overlooking the lagoons, calls for stunning views, but also has a negative side. As soon as the sun sets, the mosquitoes become very active, making treatments in the evening hours very uncomfortable and therefore mostly not done.
