Itinerary

Day 1 - 3

Kaingo, South Luangwa

Overlooking the Luangwa River deep within the prime area of the South Luangwa National Park, Kaingo’s relaxed, personal and friendly atmosphere offers its guests fantastic game-viewing opportunities within an area of incredible beauty and varied terrain.

The large centrally located open-sided sitting room includes a dining area, library and Kaingo’s renowned thousand-year-old lead-wood bar.

Kaingo has access to Shenton Safaris’ unique network of photographic hides. When it comes to getting close – especially with a camera – these fantastic hides offer a diverse range of animal viewing.

Day 3 - 5

Mwamba, South Luangwa

Mwamba means heaven in the local Nyanja language, and once you set foot in this incredible camp, you’ll see why. ere, four chalets sit idyllically along the Mwamba River that dries out as the season progresses.

The relaxed and rustic designs of Mwamba with hidden luxury items make you at home in the bush, every aspect of camp life is finely tuned to the Shenton’s family rhythm. A truly unique safari experience.

Shenton Safaris has always been the operation of choice for professional photographers and filmmakers. Many of the documentaries you’ll see today on National Geographic Channel have been filmed in their area and using their hides.

Day 5 - 7

Mchenja, South Luangwa

Flanked by a grove of towering ebony trees on one side and the Luangwa River on the other, Mchenja Camp offers luxury in the heart of the national park. Overlooking a wide river expanse, Mchenja is wonderful for watching large herds of elephants crossing the Luangwa. 

The suites bring style, comfort and luxury to an authentic safari experience. Each suite features soft beds, large picture windows and a clawfoot bath looking out onto the river. A refreshing pool is ideal for relaxing between safari activities – just be ready to share with the thirsty elephants! 

The game viewing in this area is superb, with leopards and lions sometimes wandering through the ebony grove in search of prey. Night drives are usually very rewarding, with the bush revealing a different nocturnal surprise every time. 

Day 7 - 9

Kakuli, South Luangwa

Kakuli is a seasonal luxury bush camp, set just a few hundred yards downstream from the confluence of the Luwi and the Luangwa River inside the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, and perfectly placed for exploring this game-rich area on foot.

Perched high above the Luangwa River, Kakuli Camp offers impressive vistas of the river’s many visitors below. Designed to celebrate the panoramic scenery, a stay at Kakuli is a truly awe-inspiring experience. 

Freshly redesigned in 2018, the suites offer comfort in all seasons, making it the hidden gem of the Secret Season. They are thoughtfully appointed to ensure every guest enjoys their experience.
