"Unforgettable Night Under the Stars"
We were taken to a private campsight by our guide, where we were treated to a delicious dinner by the campfire overlooking a beautiful lagoon and a stunning moonrise. We spent the night on very comfortable mattresses with only mosquito netting between us and the sky, hearing the sounds wildlife all night long, including a pride of lions that turned out in the morning to be only about 300 metres away from camp!
Needless to say this was an incredible experience and would not hesitate to recommend it." See all these reviews: 13n in Zambia
"Mwamba Camp-out review"
We had a fantastic meal, sat around the fire chatting, and even witnessed a territorial spat between two leopards. The tented beds were really comfortable, I had a great night of sleep that night. Even though a pride of lions nearby spent the night producing low frequency roars, knowing that they had just devoured a buffalo kept our minds at ease. Also, we were well protected with our guide and armed scout standing guard.
The camp-out is well worth it and I highly recommend it." See all these reviews: 9n in Zambia; 1n in South Africa
"Mwamba Camp-out review"
We felt (fairly) safe even when woken at 2am because we were surrounded by nine lions! What an amazing experience!
We loved being, quite literally, under the stars. The braii was wonderful (I don't know how they coped at Kaingo as we had the chef with us!) and the bush loo was wonderful!" See all these reviews: 9n in Zambia
"Mwamba Camp Out"
We felt that although we wanted a 'bush' experience and sleeping out, we would have like fly tents, chairs and a table." See all these reviews: 7n in Zambia
We are extremely sorry to read that these travellers had been disappointed with their experience on the Mwamba Camp Out, although at least the walking experience, guiding and sightings seemed to have exceeded their expectations. We have always promoted our camp outs as a return to nature adventure, where guests can experience the plainness of a minimalist set up, away from usual distractions in order to connect with the wilderness at its simplest. It is definitely not for everyone.
Supper is normally enjoyed sitting on a log by the fire, the fare is simple, but it sounds like there may not have been enough in this instance. This should never be the case, one of the complaints we are well used to hearing is too much food!
Thank you so much for taking the time to provide feedback, it is our goal to continually improve our safaris and a vital part of this is taking into account feedback from our guests.
