Perfectly positioned in the game-rich Nsefu sector of South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, Shawa Luangwa Camp is a luxury tented bush camp overlooking the expansive Luangwa River. A collaboration with head guide and the camp’s namesake Jacob Shawa, Shawa Luangwa Camp is a true passion project. Mr. Shawa has been integral in the planning and running of the camp, including handpicking its ideal location. His knowledge, experience, and passion for conservation is tangible throughout, and he has become affectionately known by guests as the Zambian David Attenborough.
A stay at Shawa Luangwa directly supports critical conservation and community projects, and guests are invited to get involved. Visit a local school supported by Project Luangwa, meet the people of the Zambian Carnivore Project which focuses on habitat preservation for large carnivores, and see how the Conservation South Luangwa Teams work along with the community to conserve the wildlife and ecosystem. The camp is completely eco-friendly and solar-run—including electric game vehicles.
Whether out on thrilling walks, game drives, a boat cruise, relaxing at camp, or enjoying delicious meals in the open air, Shawa Luangwa will refresh and enrich the mind and soul. It’s the perfect safari for individuals, couples, or families with older children. Groups travelling together can take advantage of the camp’s size by booking it on an exclusive-use basis to benefit from the ultimate flexibility. Just a short flight from the iconic Victoria Falls means it can be combined with most African safari circuits.
