Safari camps

Natwange and Munyamadzi community bush camps offer a host of adventure travel opportunities – and you'll be encouraging responsible tourism when you visit them. Competitive rates reflect that this is a not for profit and that a little can go a long way in local communities.

Both sites promote active community participation in the conservation and non-consumptive economic utilisation of natural resources. These areas are bursting with birds, game and a wide variety of plant species. Your safari experience here will be rich and fulfilling. Natwange offers six beautiful campsites along the Mwaleshi River and whilst Munyamadzi offers chalets and camping.

Munyamadzi community bush camp

The Munyamadzi Community Bush Camp has three self contained bed and breakfast chalets constructed from local materials taking an eco-friendly approach which is environmentally sustainable. The chalets depict traditional housing styles, are well furnished and fitted with solar electric power – you can use your laptop in the middle of the bush if you so wish! The water system is well designed to ensure you have clean safe water to drink. Cold drinks, beers and spirits are available, whilst trained chefs can prepare you tasty meals on request! There are also camping facilities available with further facilities at the Natwange Bush Camp.

This camp is in the Munyamadzi Game Management Area (GMA). This includes an ecological corridor in the Luangwa Valley, bordered by the South Luangwa National Park in the south, the Luangwa National Forest in the west, the Luambe National Park in the east and the North Luangwa National Park in the north. The Luangwa River forms the natural eastern boundary. Because of the geographical layout, the Munyamadzi corridor is known for having the highest densities of buffalo, elephant, lions leopard, impala and giraffe. (The Munyamadzi corridor is the only GMA in the North Luangwa Ecosystem with giraffe). The Munyamadzi Community Bush Camp is located 57 kilometres from the Great North Road adjacent to the Mutinondo River Bridge, about 120 kilometres from Mfuwe and 50 kilometres from Chief Nabwalya's headquarters.

These include the Muchinga Escarpment, the Mutinondo Falls, the Upper Mumpamadzi and Chivungwe Plains on the northern banks of the Mumpamadzi River, the Luangwa Fossil Forest and the Chibwe Malimba caves. After a guided exploratory day in the valley and a memorable descent through the Great Muchinga Escarpment, visitors can come back to camp, have a refreshing shower and share the day's stories around crackling camp fires… What an experience.
