Bush Spa

Set in the beauty of the indigenous bush in Zambia. The Bush-Spa Zambia in South Luangwa National Park creates a sanctuary of pure simplicity for those seeking tranquillity and rejuvenation of mind, body and soul. The award winning Bush-Spa overlooks a lagoon that attracts abundant wildlife and the view is quite breath-taking. The safari guest is offered a range of well-being packages to experience a Spa in the Zambian bush. The settings are hard to beat and the treatments are adapted to suit the surroundings and are not only terrific value for money, but really do leave you feeling revitalized.




The setting of the Bush-Spa is dreamy and “al fresco”, on a secluded deck over 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.

Need to Know

At the Bush-Spa we thrive on our unique location! There are plenty places in the world where one can have a Spa treatment, but only a few where your wellness session might be extended due to unique sightings of visiting wildlife. In celebration of the African culture, we create unique signature treatments using indigenous plant ingredients. Professional Massages, Facials and Body works from all over the world are combined with ancient African holistic practices to create a truly African experience to the highest standards

Taking indigenous remedies to the extreme and making use of the healing essence, the in-house trained, Zambian therapists follow African traditions without losing their quality and highly professional touch. Our competitive edge besides our location is our ability to use seasonal and indigenous ingredients creatively to spark interest with safari guests. We back that up with the best service and caring touch of our Zambian therapists. Our combination of unique services, outstanding location and our interaction with the Spa guests is proven to be a huge success.


The spa has 2 individual and 1 couples’ treatment rooms plus a wet deck with bush-style monsoon showers and an intimate hydrotherapy bath. All in open-sided compartments that allow you to enjoy the living soundtrack and feel the natural breeze in your hair.


Having a separate entrance, a private deck and great views over the lagoon, all guests enjoying their Safari experience in the Luangwa Valley can easily arrange a visit to the Spa facility. We can easily make arrangements and gladly offer complimentary transfers to and from the Bush-Spa to any of the South Luangwa Camps or Lodges within the vicinity.


The treatment menu includes all the classic spa staples with a local twist, utilising 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 Hydrotherapy Packages


Where else in the world can one enjoy the benefits of Hydrotherapy whilst watching the hippo's taking their own bath just below the deck? Only at our Bush-Spa! Our therapists are aware of the unique location they work in and will at all times adjust their treatment enabling the guest to continue their safari whilst having one of our relaxing treatments. Therefore our Bush-Spa is open throughout the year!
