Mwamba Bush Camp
Mwamba Camp sits beside the Mwamba River in a wonderfully secluded spot in the South Luangwa National Park. Owned by Derek and Juliet Shenton, and managed by an excellent team of local staff, the camp has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere in one of South Luangwa’s most peaceful and private locations.
Accommodation & Facilities
Mwamba has four spacious chalets with large gauze skylights allowing guests to experience sleeping “under the stars” in safety. The chalets are made from reed and thatch, and have solar lighting and fans, and open air en-suite bathrooms with flush loos and hot safari bucket showers. The camp has a simple but gorgeous ‘chitenje’ under a huge ebony tree, which features a bar, lounge and dining room.
Wildlife & Activities
The resident wildlife includes lion, elephant, large herds of buffalo, eland, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, and regular leopard sightings. Activities at Mwamba include day and night drives with just 4 guests per open vehicle, superb walking safaris, sleep-outs in the Numbu Starbed, and the use of a collection of hides which offer fantastic photographic opportunities. Mwamba’s own hide, the Last Waterhole Hide, is a short walk from all of the chalets making it an excellent siesta activity for Mwamba’s guests. Other hides include the Hippo Hide, Giraffe Hide, and seasonal Wild Dog and Carmine Bee-eater Hides.
