"Still the traditional bush feel"

"Mwamba camp 24-27 July"
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." See all these reviews: 9n in Zambia
"The best at Mwamba"
"We Love Mwamba Bushcamp!"
Eve, Lyndie and Craig were superb hosts and the food was excellent. Superb work by the chef (Zacks).
We really enjoyed having a single guide for our stay in the camp - allowing us to build up a relationship with our guide Andrew. The game drives were excellent - we saw lots of wildlife (16 members of the Mwamba/Kaingo pride), great photographic opportunities and we loved the locations for morning coffee and sundowners. Andrew was a great guide - enthusiastic and committed, good company, informative and gave us a welcome window into Zambian life.
We'll be back!" See all these reviews: 11n in Zambia
"Mwamba - rustic but not roughing it!"
Eating and drinking in the open air - be it breakfast, brunch or dinner - is a joy.
All the staff are friendly and helpful. On this visit our guide Andrew Mweetwa showed once again his superb knowledge and bushcraft, and was excellent company. Managers Craig and Lindy were very attentive, and Craig's helpful pointers in the hide were very much appreciated.
The high point of our stay was our first-ever sighting of African wild dogs, Andrew came back from a game drive to fetch us from the camp (where we had elected to stay one morning for an extended hide visit) in order to find them. Great service indeed!" See all these reviews: 8n in Zambia
"Heaven on earth at Mwamba"
We do love the hide "Last waterhole". We could sit their for hours.
Guiding and hosting here is on the highest level. Fantastic!" See all these reviews: 20n in Zambia
"Remote but comfortable camp"
As at Kaingo the guides were excellent and we enjoyed numerous sightings of leopards, lions and ellies. An advantage of the small number of chalets and hence guests was the intimacy of the camp and we felt that we really got to know the very entertaining guides and the lovely hosts, Craig and Lindi, over the excellent meals. Dinner was a treat.
The hides overlooking the waterhole were a good bonus as they were just a very short walk away in the intense midday and afternoon heat. We saw ellies drinking and spraying water on their backs from just a few feet away." See all these reviews: 8n in Zambia; 2n in Kenya
"Fantastic time at Mwamba (again!)"
Craig and Linda excelled when adverse weather conditions visited. The guiding food and accommodation are second to none.
We cannot recommend Kaingo and Mwamba camp highly enough." See all these reviews: 8n in Zambia; 3n in Botswana
"Mwamba Bushcamp review"
Sly was an excellent guide and went out of his way to accommodate us and all our needs.
The bush camp was almost the same as we rembered from our last visit. My only adverse comment is that there should be more rush mats in the shower area as the mud floors are difficult to deal with.
The leopard sightings were wonderful at both camps. I can't think of any other place were one can see some many leopard as well as so many baby elephants, every herd had several babies some just born.
The Hide at this camp was very good for spending spare time in as it is on site and accessable any time of the day. Very close up viewing of game and many birds." See all these reviews: 10n in Zambia
