Mwamba Bushcamp is set beneath the shade of tall ebony trees, overlooking a waterhole in the usually dry bed of the seasonal Mwamba River. Owned by Derek and Jules Shenton, it is a very natural yet comfortable camp: small, intimate and very remote.

Our view of Mwamba Bushcamp

We've visited Mwamba often since about 1995, most recently in September 2017. We've found that the remote area and simple design of the camp give it a true bushcamp feel, but the spacious rooms, large beds and excellent en-suite bathrooms add a surprising level of comfort that complements the experience nicely. The food was great – and we loved the flexibility of the activities (especially the hides!) and the obvious passion of the guides.
