A member of the
Set on the banks of the Mwamba River, a tributary of the Luangwa, the camp, sited under huge evergreen ebony trees, enjoys shady views of perennial water-holes, both of which have hides perched over them for fantastic photographic opportunities or simply quiet times viewing the animals.
Mwamba takes only 6 guests in 3 reed and thatch chalets, uniquely designed with two soaring skylights (protected by mosquito gauze) set into the roof allowing you to experience sleeping under the stars.
These three bungalows have huge outdoors ensuite bathrooms with flush toilets and hot bucket showers. Our 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. The accommodation reflects a thoughtful balance between back-to-nature simplicity and essential comforts. Meals are of the same high standard as Kaingo, and the 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.
WHY CHOOSE MWAMBA?
- The nights at Mwamba are filled with wildlife action. Bats and owls (Pearl spotted and Scops in particular) set up the background sounds together with whirring cicadas.
- 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.
- At Mwamba Bush Camp there are two hides overlooking waterholes right inside the camp with plenty of game coming to quench their thirst.
