Fantastic safari experience

A wonderful balance of comfort, charm and friendly staff

Kaingo Camp is based in the northern region of South Luangwa National Park. The camp is a homely, owner-run lodge overlooking the Luangwa River. Built and run by Derek Shenton, son of Barry Shenton (former ranger in Luangwa and warden of Kafue National Park), the camp is renowned for excellent game viewing and a relaxed, camp atmosphere. It pairs very nicely with the sister Shenton Safaris camp: Mwamba Camp and is particularly popular for photographic safaris.

Kaingo Camp accommodation comprises five brick and thatch chalets set on the banks of the Luangwa River. Each chalet has an en-suite indoor bathroom, as well as a romantic outdoor bathtub tucked under the ebony trees that surround the camp. Each chalet also has its own patio with a day bed and seating area, as well as a private deck overhanging the banks of the Luangwa River. The camp also features one deluxe chalet which is ideal for either couples wanting extra luxury, or groups of up to six people. The deluxe chalet features a lounge area and large patio with dining table. There is an en-suite bathroom off the main bedroom, guest toilet near the lounge area as well as an outdoor shower and bath. The large, central open-sided sitting room includes a dining area, library and Kaingo’s renowned thousand-year-old lead-wood bar.

Activities at Kaingo include game drives and walking safaris, all run by excellent guides. Kaingo also has stunning photographic hides guaranteed to get you close enough to the wildlife to take amazing photos – in complete safety. For those feeling more adventurous, guests can sleep out in the elephant hide tree platform, or try fly-camping under the stars.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
