Mwamba Camp

South Luangwa National Park

Overlooking a waterhole in the usually dry river bed of the Mwamba River, Mwamba Camp lies beneath a grove of old Ebony trees’. Owned by the Shenton family this is the sister camp to Kaingo and is a remote and intimate camp. A morning walk or a short drive from Kaingo it’s ideal for those looking for rustic comfort amidst incredible wildlife.

As with Kaingo there are several incredible viewing hides set very close to the waterhole allowing for photography on a completely different level. The Last Waterhole Hide lies right within Mwamba and several hours can easily be spent enjoying both the proximity to and diversity of wildlife that come to drink.


The four thatched chalets at Mwamba are simply decorated and furnished with reed mats and African prints adorning each room. Just one of the chalets has twin beds while the rest have king size beds and the honeymoon suite has been set slightly apart from the rest to afford greater privacy.

Beds are surrounded by walk in mosquito nets and solar powered lights are provided on the bedside tables with a fan to provide a welcome breeze during the warmer nights. Outside each chalet is a small seating area veranda with comfortable chairs overlooking the river.

The open en-suite bathroom for each chalet has been enclosed by a reed wall for privacy but provides a real African feel to your showers. Hot bucket showers are filled after each game drive and cold water is available all day – especially necessary if you’re going to visit in October.
