You don’t need to leave your bed to see the wildlife, as from your unique vantage point you can watch as animals roam across the landscape, or swing through the trees above your head.

Each has its own raised verandah to loll on during the heat of the day, and an open-fronted en-suite bathroom with the same views over the tranquil waters. Two of the chalets have queen-size beds and one has a king-size bed. With capacity for just six guests, this is the ideal camp for small groups.

Enjoy a sundowner from the comfort of the thatched bar and dining area as you watch the wildlife do the same at the river. Exceptional game viewing and understated elegance make Chamilandu Bushcamp a place to remember.

With no fewer than seven oxbow lagoons behind the camp, there are always thirsty animals around seeking refreshment. Our hide looks out over one of these lagoons and is the perfect place to take lunch, tea or to while away an afternoon in a hammock to the soundtrack of bathing elephant.

Our expert guides will lead you on foot through some of the park’s most untouched wilderness, where large herds of buffalo roam the grassy plains and thirsty elephants come to drink at the springs and along the river. With limited roads in the area, activities are focused around walking, but to get even further afield, day and night game drives are also on offer. In the evening after wading through the river, we invite you to join your hosts for sundowners or sit around the campfire for a drink before recounting the day’s adventures over a starlit dinner.

Beneath a canopy of ebony and mahogany, its thatched buildings are arranged around the banks of two lagoons where an endless stream of wildlife will keep you enthralled as you lounge on the open deck or take a dip in the swimming pool.

Situated in a remote corner of the South Luangwa National Park, the camp combines isolation and superb game viewing opportunities of a true bush camp with a touch of luxury.

Wonderfully remote and peaceful, the site is a relaxed 3-hour bushwalk from Kaingo. Set on the banks of the Mwamba River, a tributary of the Luangwa, the camp enjoys shady views of perennial water-holes. The chalets are uniquely designed with two large skylights (protected by mosquito gauze) allowing you to experience sleeping under the stars. These three reed and thatch en-suite bungalows also have solar lighting, flush toilets and hot showers. The accommodation reflects a thoughtful balance between back-to-nature simplicity and essential comforts. Meals are of the same high standard as Kaingo, and the bush-style dining/bar area or 'chitenge' is set under the deep shade of huge ebony trees. A spectacular sunset viewing-point on top of a large termite mound and a glowing campfire under the stars completes the camp's friendly and personal atmosphere. The game around Mwamba is excellent; large herds of buffalo, eland and Cookson's wildebeeste are followed by the 'Mwamba pride', which consists of six beautiful lionesses and two classicly dark maned males. Good leopard sightings are also common due to the large numbers of impala and puku in the area. Elephants use the Mwamba's waterholes regularly and there is a large bull which frequents the camp. Another appeal of Mwamba is the surrounding terrain. The land varies tremendously from wide open plains such as Lion Plain and Eland Plain, interspersed by shady mopane/crocodile bark woodland with short grass, and bordered by Combretum thickets along the Mwamba river. The area is excellent for walking safaris and game drives. We also offer over-night 'camp-outs' (sleeping open under a net, close to the camp-fire) on request. These trips allow visitors to get a sense of the absolute wildness of the National Park as there are no other camps or trails for miles around. One of the most unusual sights is the Baobab 'forest' near Mwamba Sands. As Mwamba is a specialised camp and is an extension to Kaingo, the small staff have been hand-picked and will work tirelessly to ensure guests are comfortable and relaxed.
