"Excellent start to our honeymoon!"
The local staff were truly hospitable and friendly - we could have asked for better. I thought that though very new to the job, Annabelle was an excellent hostess - charming, helpful and sociable in all the right amounts. The quantity and quality of the game on show was also superb. Mayam was a fantastic guide who knew the area like the back of his hand." See all these reviews: 13n in Zambia
"Mwamba Camp - great place"
Even with a full camp, it would feel exclusive and quiet and relatively remote.
We had one of the most remarkable night-drives one could imagine, with everything from leopards and lions to genets and hyenas and mongoose and owls and nightjars." See all these reviews: 15n in Zambia
"Mwamba Bush Camp review"
We saw everything we could possibly want and more. it actually became a joke, because whatever we asked for, our guide found! On the last evening, we joked with him that we wanted to see a leopard kill, with hyenas circling the leopard, and then lions coming after the lot of them - guess what - it happened!!"

"Camp fire chats at Mwamba"
"Mwamba Bush Camp review"
Although the viewing was very much centred around the lions in the area we saw a great deal of the other wildlife with a wonderful walk to Kaingo Camp through the Fairy Tale Ebony Forest to finish off." See all these reviews: 9n in Zambia; 8n in Zanzibar
"What a great little gem in the bush!"
Huts are terrific and stood up to close encounters with munching elephants. Everything we said about Kaingo applies here." See all these reviews: 12n in Zambia
"One night in the bush"
The camp was wonderful, though the Caterer, Gale, came across as more of a guest than a member of staff. This is not a criticism, merely an observance." See all these reviews: 10n in Zambia
"Sausage tree at Mwamba"
A wonderful picnic lunch on the banks of the Luangwa was arranged for our last day (same spot as last year). The walks to (with Patrick) and from (with Ian) Mwamba were, as ever, very enjoyable - two good leopard sightings on the way back. Terry and Gideon again provided excellent scouting and spotting."
