Mwamba Bush Camp Highlights

Mwamba Bush Camp is a small bush camp situated in the heart of the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia offering day game drives, night game drives as well as walking safaris. Mwamba offers a fantastic location underneath the trees on the banks of the Mwamba River, a tributary of the Luangwa River. Mwamba offers beautiful views over the waterholes and specially placed hides offer close up encounters with wildlife as well as spectacular photographic opportunities. Mwamba Bush Camp is small and caters for only 6 guests at a time in reed and thatch chalets. The chalets offer spacious en-suite bathrooms with hot showers and flush toilets. Magnificent leopard sightings are also frequent due to the thick riverine bush along the Mwamba attracted by the large numbers of impala and puku found around camp.

Sun Safaris Says

  • Wonderfully remote and peaceful, the site is a relaxed 3-hour bushwalk or 20 minute drive from Kaingo.
  • Our lighting is all solar powered and the complete absence of generator noise means nothing interferes with the natural sounds of the surroundings.
  • Elephants are never far away and are especially fond of the tamarind and ebony fruit within the camp.
