Kuthengo Camp is set on the lush banks of the Shire River that drains Lake Malawi. This intimate camp in Malawi is nestled among ancient fever trees and soaring baobabs that provide shelter for the unmistakable vocalists of Africa’s distinct spirit, African fish eagles. Wake up to the cries of ‘Africa’s voice’, amplified over the open grass plains of Liwonde National Park’s pristine wilderness.
Kuthengo aptly means ‘the wild’ or ‘the bush’, as Liwonde has remained untouched for centuries and offers safari goers a truly out-in-the-wild experience. The breath-taking Shire River is the heart of the park and attracts an abundance of large animals like hippos and elephants.
The camp is situated on a bend along the Shire, its tents facing down-stream with gorgeous views over the open grass plain that stretches to the river banks. Watch the large bloats of hippo graze nearby and herds of ellies use their favourite river crossing point just in front of camp – sometimes only the tips of their trunks are visible as they snorkel across the Shire!
Explore Liwonde’s interior on day and night game drives or get really close to the action on guided bush walks. The park’s expansive floodplains are home to sable and roan antelope, impala and buffalo. Liwonde is famed for its splendid boating safaris, a tranquil way to experience the grand Shire River.
