Still a favourite after all these years...

Six years after my first visit, and Mwamba is still one my favourite camps in Africa: South Luangwa's unbeatable game density and a remote, intimate bush camp is a winning combination. The camp itself has benefited from a gentle face-lift making it lovelier than ever: Craig and Lindie, who have managed the camp for three years, deserve much credit for their work.

Chalets now have charging stations of their own (as well as a fan, which I didn't use) but haven't lost their rustic allure. Sly was, once again, a reliably strong guide with a nose for leopards (we saw seven different ones in three days).

Sighting highlights also included large herds of elephant and buffalo, as well as lions hunting and feasting.

Great bushcamp

An authentic bushcamp. Up close and personal with the wildlife - If staying both here and Kaingo - possibly too close as shares the same drive area

Mwamba Bush Camp Review

The staff and management of Mwamba did a remarkable job, providing a luxury experience in a camp setting which reverts to bush in the rainy season.

Sylvester was a great guide, but the best experience came in replacing an early morning a drive with session in the hide.

The proximity of the animals, including the mud sprayed from an elephant having a mud bath, was unbelievable.

Experience Africa in a Unique Setting

What a lovely Bushcamp Mwamba was.

The hosts, Lindsey and Craig, were so very pleasant and helpful and provided such a delightful experience in the wilds of Zambia. The guide, Sandy, showed us some lovely terrain on safari and the wildlife was everywhere. We experience hundreds of Cape Buffalo running to the river for a drink one day.

Many elephants and impala, baboons and vervet monkeys were seen around the camp. The location seemed to be on many of the animals normal route so wildlife were frequently seen. We really enjoyed the hide as a way to view the animals and birds in close proximity without disturbing their behavior.

All of the staff were very accommodating, helpful and so polite. You just felt very welcome from the moment you arrived.

We enjoyed the story about how every year this camp is completely dismantled at the end of the safari season when it begins to rain and then rebuilt from scratch in the dry season. It was very comfortable and showering and sleeping under the stars in the privacy of our chalet was a delightful experience. The food was very good and we had no problems with eating even fresh produce.

Mwamba Bushcamp review

Craig and Lindy were amazing managers.

Sylvester may have been our best guide ever. He probably saved our lives from a charging elephant, we were on a walking safari.

Still the traditional bush feel

Has retained its bush character and style. Still one of our favourites. 4 rooms has made activities more flexible as long as you have 2 walking guides in Camp. Everything worked like clockwork.

Sandy was a great guide and walks were possible every day.

Waterhole hide was fabulous for mid day viewing. Game excellent.

A great 3 Nights

It has been a while since we last visited Mwamba and whilst there have been a few changes these have only improved the experience.

Everyone goes out of their way to ensure you have a great time and the game viewing was outstanding.

Mwamba camp 24-27 July

My second visit to Mwamba - this time I brought 3 friends with me. As last time, we had Craig and Lindy as hosts and the superb Patrick as our guide.

This place has a real 'bush' feel, with reed walls and roof and an open air bathroom - but delivered with real style and panache. The hide in the camp overlooking the water hole is an added bonus, and we all had some great sightings of birds and animals from there. But Patrick's skill at interpreting alarm calls of baboons and squirrels, and knowing from them what was about and in which direction must be unsurpassed

We had wonderful game drives with him, and also a morning walk in the bush. The walk was something I would particularly recommend to anyone going to S Luangwa. Patrick spotted a headless baboon in a tree, and when we returned later with the vehicle we were rewarded with viewing mum leopard and her two baby cubs - a real magical 30 minutes spent watching them.

Carig and Lindy always busy in the background looking after our comfort, and did that very well - the sloshing of the hot water into our shower bucket always arrived just at the requested time!

A lovely camp to stay in - combining luxury and a real feel for being out in the bush wonderfully.
