Project Description


Regarded as one of the world’s greatest wildlife sanctuaries, the concentration of game around the Luangwa River and its many oxbow lagoons is among the most intense in Africa. Kaingo Camp is located deep within the most game-rich, remote northern sector of the park in an area renowned for its varied, beautiful landscapes and exceptional game viewing.

Kaingo Camp offers six tranquil thatch chalets nestled discretely along the banks of the Luangwa River, the spacious and beautifully styled rooms featuring luxurious king size beds, solar powered charging points and fan, indoor shower and an indulgent outdoor bathtub.

The cuisine is a highlight too, offering fresh and light meals that are a departure from the heavier, more traditional fare typically found at game lodges. Home-grown produce from the camp’s very own veggie garden adds to the appeal of the dining experience and the warm, friendly and professional camp teams are always on hand to make sure you are well looked after.

One of the biggest drawcards Shenton Safaris boasts is their exclusive network of wildlife hides. Each location has been carefully chosen after years of observation to maximise incredible wildlife and photographic moments. The hides target different aspects of the South Luangwa environment, with mobile hides to take advantage of unique wildlife moments, such as the Carmine-Bee Eater migration, and fixed photographic hides such as Hippo Hide and Elephant Hide.

With a long and proud history of guiding and preserving Zambia’s wilderness areas, Derek’s father, Barry Shenton worked to spearhead conservation through tourism. He was a pivotal figure in developing infrastructures and securing the status of many National Parks in Zambia.

Together, Barry and Derek established Kaingo Camp in 1992, with Derek going on to develop his vision of a “quintessential bush camp” in 2000 when Mwamba Bush Camp was born. Since then, Derek and his wife Jules, a zoologist and wildlife photographer, have channeled their passion and expertise to grow Shenton Safaris into the widely acclaimed offering we know today.
