Kaingo

Kaingo overlooks the Luangwa River deep within the prime area of the South Luangwa National Park.

Accommodation is shaded, en-suite riverside chalets with individual decks built out over the river. Guests can relax in the large centrally-located open-sided sitting room, the dining area, library, or Kaingo’s renowned thousand year old lead-wood bar. From the vantage point of the decks, guests can view game coming down to drink, basking Hippos, aquatic birds, Crocodiles fishing, and daily Elephant crossings. The complete absence of generator noise means guests will be able to hear the wheeze-honk of the Hippos, the sounds of a Lion’s roar, a Leopard’s call, or the early morning "drumming" of the Ground Hornbill.

Activities include walking safaris, game drives, trips to the Elephant and Hippo hides.


Mwamba Bush Camp

Mwamba Bush Camp is situated in a remote and peaceful location on the banks of the Mwamba River in the heartland of the South Luangwa National Park. The camp is sited under huge evergreen Ebony trees and enjoys shady views of perennial water-holes.

A bush-style dining and bar area or "chitenge" is set under the deep shade of huge 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.

Activities are focused on walking safaris and day and night game drives to see the excellent game around the Mwamba camp. Large herds of Buffalo, Zebra, Eland and in particular Cookson’s Wildebeest are followed by the "Mwamba" Lion pride. Fantastic Leopard sightings are also common due to the thick riverine bush along the Mwamba, attracted by the large numbers of Impala and Puku in the open glades around camp.
