Phil Berry 1941-2022

I want to pay tribute and say farewell to Phil Berry, who sadly passed away in the USA on the 30th July.

Phil was a remarkable man… an incredibly knowledgeable guide, outstanding naturalist and tireless conservationist who devoted his life to the wildlife and people of Zambia’s Luangwa Valley. Few have contributed more towards South Luangwa’s current status as one of Africa’s leading safari destinations.

Phil spent most of his life in the Luangwa Valley, from his earliest days as a young game ranger to his later years in his beloved Kuyenda Bushcamp.

As the valley’s elder statesman and undisputed wildlife expert, he held an exalted position in the safari community. His dedication and shining example inspired generations of young Zambians to follow in his footsteps.

He leaves behind an outstanding legacy. The South Luangwa National Park and Kuyenda Bushcamp in particular, serve as fitting monuments to a unique man. His indomitable spirit will forever live on in the wilderness he called home.
