all with a Zambian smile at the 

The awesome Bush-Spa team consists of attentive qualified Zambian therapists. We all are are on hand to provide you with a wide variety of massages and a host of other therapeutic and beauty skin care treatments. Many of these use local indigenous ingredients from the African bush further emphasising its beauty and enchantment.

The entire team is proud to be part of an environmental friendly Spa to ensure the sustainability of the National Park and the communities around. The result is a totally natural, but truly African Spa experience for our guests and a lasting impact within their local community in rural Africa.

We constantly aim to train and develop our entire staff. We achieve this through providing accessible, high quality development opportunities in education, learning and research. The quality and commitment of our team is fundamental to achieving our vision and following company strategy. We aim to foster a professional approach in all staff and to encourage their contribution as team members to provide you with the best service possible.

Meet the Bush-Spa team

Proudly Zambian in the Luangwa Valley

At the Bush-Spa we believe a guest-centred treatment as well as a therapist-centred training is more effective.
We therefore pay attention to the therapist’s own development, taking the African culture, society and conducts into account.
Training continues throughout employment by new courses, sufficient time for practical training and use of all Spa equipment.
All therapists are qualified for all services on offer.


Owner run Bush-Spa

All therapists on duty have been carefully selected and received extensive in-house training by the cautious hands and mind of Nathalie, our Spa owner.
Operating a Spa in the bush requires additional skills and different attitudes, not found in just about every therapist. To follow the company policy of providing income and opportunity for the local community, Nathalie prefers to work with Zambian therapists, all trained for the treatments on offer.

However, Nathalie herself is fully active as well, not wanting to let go of the love for that personal touch! Her efforts and team spirit received recognition in International Spa awards and various nominations, where she was voted Best Spa Manager and Best Entrepreneur in Zambia and the Bush-Spa being Best Luxury Safari Spa!

All in all, the Bush-Spa provides excellent treatments by a well-trained team, with quality products in the heart of the African bush. 
We all are proud to be part of the team in an environmental friendly Spa to ensure the sustainability of the National Park and the communities around. The result is a totally natural experience!
