Mawimbi Bush Camp
Mawimbi is a luxury tented camp on the banks of the Kafue River.
The main activity offered is canoeing through an amazing variety of habitats and breathtaking scenery – sometimes fast and exciting and sometimes lazy and leisurely. Wilderness game walks in the Kafue National Park are organized every morning and afternoon for those not wishing to brave the canoeing and are a must for all lovers of the African bush. Of course, there is a huge variety of bird life that awaits exploring as well as fishing for many different species of fish by lure or fly.
Three large and uniquely styled canvas tents located on the river bank ensure your ultimate exclusivity. Each has its own en-suite outdoor bathroom with a hand wash basin and bucket shower that is supplied with hot water on demand and an ecologically designed “green” toilet. All of the tents are fully mosquito proofed, with two beds in the main area of the tent with a covered entrance veranda overlooking the river for perfect game viewing and relaxing. The tent is tastefully furnished with all basic necessities and decorated in subtle African themes.
Each of the three tents sleeps two adults only.
Families (up to 2 extra children) can be accommodated in one tent upon request.
