South Luangwa National Park Zambia

  • Stunning wildlife viewing in the wilds of South Luangwa
  • Access to incredible photographic hides
  • Simple, authentic intimate camp
  • Explore on foot and by vehicle
  • Just 3 thatched guest chalets

Run by Shenton Safaris, Mwamba Bush Camp is set on the banks of the Mwamba River, a tributary of the Luangwa and enjoys views of perennial waterholes. The 3 reed-and-thatch en-suite chalets are uniquely designed with two large skylights (protected by mosquito gauze) allowing you to experience sleeping under the stars. They also have solar lighting, flush toilets and bucket showers. Mwamba provides back-to-nature simplicity with essential comforts. The accommodation might be simple but the experience here is extremely special. This is rustic luxury.

Meals are served in the bush-style dining/bar area or chitenge, set under the deep shade of huge ebony trees. A spectacular sunset viewing point on top of a large termite mound (the anthill lookout) and a glowing campfire under the stars complete the camp's friendly and personal atmosphere.

Shenton Safaris are long established in the South Luangwa Valley in Zambia. Derek and Jules Shenton's team of guides are able to combine their skills and intimate knowledge of the area to provide exciting safari walks and game drives, and their team of attentive staff take care of all your comforts in camp.

Fly camping can be enjoyed while at Mwamba Camp. This involves a game drive and walking safari to a remote location, where dinner is prepared before a night spent beneath the stars - a true bush experience.

Client Rating for Zambia 5/5 from 53 reviews

Very special. I wouldn't hesitate to return. Best suited for those who are happy to spend hours sitting in a hide waiting for visitors rather than racing around chasing the tick list.
