The chalets or safari tents all have beautiful views over the dambo and the gauzed windows allow all the wonderful sounds of the African night to reach you clearly!

Mawimbi bush camp

A tented camp with  spectacular riverfront views overlooking the Kafue River

After a hearty breakfast, we leave Nanzhila Plains and head through the Ngoma Forest towards Lake Itezhi-tezhi (there is also the option of stopping to visit the Elephant Orphanage) before arriving at the ITT shoreline. Stopping at an appropriate shady spot, we will enjoy a picnic lunch watching the antics of the wildlife around the lake before meeting the team from Mawimbi Bush Camp. This camp is  situated on the riverbank of the beautiful Kafue River and is the perfect destination for water activities, bird watching and photographic opportunities as you have a superb dambo behind the camp and a beautiful stretch of river in front..

what you will love:

tented safari camp

The riverside accommodation is stunning with constant bird activity and the sounds of the wild in the background. These well appointed safari tents are beautiful comfortable and perfectly positioned.


river adventures

The section of the Kafue River around Mawimbi  is stunning and the canoe trips are an absolute must on this trip to complement a bush walk experience.


As Mawimbi is river-based, it offers a different perspective to the game viewing experience to Nanzhila making the 2 camps a superb and complementary combination.
