Mwamba Bush Camp
Remote and peaceful setting amongst prime Zambian wildlife
Mwamba Bush Camp
Found a 3 hour bush walk from it's sister camp Kiango, Mwamba has all the hands on and professional service of Kiango, but the uniqueness of an intimate, spectacular wildlife setting. The camp lies on the banks of the Mwamba River in the grasslands where passing prides of lions march through the small and comfortable camp, shadowing the herds of animals making use of the river each day. The camp is solar powered, eliminating any unnatural noises in the evenings and allowing you to experience the bush in simplistic, natural settings.
At the lodge
The main dining area is set underneath a large ebony tree entwined with vines, a beautiful rustic bar envelops the trunk of a large tree at it's centre with views over the nearby river. Sandy floors and reed walls create a sense of back to the basics, all amenities met without the fuss and frills. In the camp it's not about opulence but more the connection with the bush that you are here to experience, and you wont be disappointed.
With only three reed- walled and thatch roofed chalets able to accommodated a maximum of six guests this is a wonderfully intimate camp relishes in creating a intimate space for you to relax in. Large outdoor showers, light and simple African decor touches and an array of open windows, covered with gauze,frame the outside bush. Piping hot showers in the evenings after game drives and shaded verandahs with chairs overlooking the riverbed complete the simple,rustic atmosphere.
The wildlife around Mwamba is excellent, with two resident waterholes attracting a regular herd of elephants, large herds of buffalo, wildebeest, zebra, impala, eland as well as the resident Mwamba lion pride found in the nearby plains. The thick riverine bush is also perfect for leopard sightings. The varied terrain makes this an ideal place for a walking safari accompanied by one of the very knowledgeable and passionate guides.
