Mwamba is a satellite of Kaingo Camp in South Luangwa National Park – with only six beds, it is a perfect contrast to the main camp with its own distinct character and location

Built and run by Derek Shenton, it shares the same level of service as Kaingo, and hides have been used by the BBC, Discovery Channel and the National Geographic, as well as by some of the world's top wildlife photographers.

It stands on the Mwamba River – the journey between the two camps is either a relaxed three hour walking safari, or a morning wildlife drive, filled with game, such as the massive buffalo herds on Lion Plain. Here you can experience the ancient Luangwa valley without human interference – the area’s wildlife is free to follow its natural patterns of behaviour undisturbed by mankind.

Deep in the park and far from the busy Mfuwe area, you will revel in the solitude, far away from other safari vehicles – there are no other camps in the immediate area. Like Kaingo it remains open from June to the end of October.
