Mwamba blends in with the surrounding African bush and features three authentic reed and thatch huts. Each hut comes with huge skylights and an open air en-suite bathroom. The dining area and bar are alfresco, tucked beneath towering ebony trees. Wonderfully remote and peaceful, the site is a relaxed three hour bushwalk or 20 minute drive from Kaingo, its sister camp on the Luangwa River.
Guest staying at Mwamba have access to an unparalleled network of photographic hides. These offer fantastic opportunities for close-up encounters with the abundant wildlife.

Mwamba is home to a resident leopard, and is visited daily by elephants, as well as large groups of antelopes.
The Park hosts about 60 different animal species and over 400 different bird species.
The main predators in the Luangwa Valley are lion, leopard, spotted hyena and wild dog – with lion and leopard probably the most common.
Elephants and buffalo occur in large herds, and the river is home to the largest concentration of hippopotamus and crocodiles.
Amongst South Luangwa’s many herbivores, several are endemic to the area such as the beautiful Thornicroft’s giraffe, Cookson’s wildebeest and the Crawshay’s zebra.
Private lunches are served at Mwamba on individual patios.
