A quiet camp with shady views of watering holes

Rustic comfort in the beautiful South Luangwa bush

Mwamba Camp is based in the north of South Luangwa National Park, overlooking a waterhole in the bed of the seasonal Mwamba River. Mwamba Camp, along with its sister Kaingo Camp, are the creations of the Shenton family, which has a proud history of three generations of wildlife conservation in Southern Africa. They have intentionally kept both camps small and private to enable a more intimate, more personal atmosphere.

Mwamba Camp accommodation consists of four reed and thatch chalets designed to accommodate a maximum of eight guests. The rooms have been designed with a balance of rustic simplicity and comfort. The chalets have large gauze skylights in the roof to give guests a feeling of sleeping under the stars. Each has a large outdoor bathroom, with a hot shower and flushing toilet.

Activities centre on walking safaris, and the game around Mwamba provides spectacular viewing. Large herds of buffalo, zebra, eland and Cookson’s wildebeest are found on the plains and in the Mopane/Crocodile bark woodlands close to camp. Guests can also go out on game drives, photographic safaris and visit hides to see the animals coming and going in front of them. A new sleeping platform has also been added to Mwamba Camp, the Numbu Sleep Out, where you can stay the night in a viewing platform in a tree not far from the camp.

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
