The well-established Kaingo Camp overlooks the Luangwa River from beneath an old grove of ebony trees. Owned by Derek Shenton and his family, it’s one of the few owner-run camps remaining in South Luangwa National Park. Derek still heads up the team and is frequently in camp guiding, and his very engaging wife, Jules, is also involved,.

Our view of Kaingo Camp

If there is a ‘cookie-cutter template’ for a safari camp, Derek and Jules have always ignored it; Kaingo operates with a style of its own – which we find a refreshing change. It’s a welcoming camp, very informal and with a very relaxed feel. We’ve found the service to be personal, the guides engaging and knowledgeable, and the game activities well organised and productive. We love having three activities a day, and the enthusiasm that goes into these, and the hides add an extra dimension to a safari here, especially for keen photographers.
