Set peacefully on the banks of the Mwamba River, Mwamba is renowned for its excellent walking safaris, with the land varying from wide open plains to shady crocodile bark woodland with short grass and bordered by combretum thickets.
Situated in South Luangwa National Park, north of the main gate near Lion Plains.
Accommodation and facilities:
Six guests are accommodated in two twin chalets and one honeymoon chalet. The reed and thatch chalets are designed with two soaring skylights (protected by mosquito gauze) set into the roof allowing guests to experience sleeping under the stars. The chalets have huge en suite bathrooms with flush toilets and hot showers. Lighting is all solar powered and the complete absence of generator noise means nothing interferes with the morning chorus or the midnight howls of the hyena. Meals are of the same high standard as its sister camp, Kaingo and the bush-style dining and bar area is set under the shade of ebony trees entwined with python vines. A spectacular sundowner spot on top of a large termite mound and a glowing campfire under the night sky completes the camp’s friendly and personal atmosphere.
Both walking safaris and night and day game drives are offered from Mwamba, providing an opportunity to explore the Park’s heartland and abundant wildlife. The camp has two hides which are built overlooking the two perennial waterholes, of which offer fantastic photographic opportunities.
Fantastic leopard sightings are common in the thick riverine bush along the Mwamba river. Elephants use the Mwamba’s waterholes regularly and there is a family of elephants who visit the waterhole next to the honeymoon chalet to drink and take mudbaths in the afternoons. There are also two young orphan bulls who visit camp.
