Situated within the South Luangwa National Park, Kaingo Camp overlooks the Luangwa Deep River that offers exciting game viewing opportunities. Special features are its unique animal-watching hides, offering spectacular close-up photography opportunities and unobtrusive observation of animals in their natural environment. The BBC used Kaingo’s hippo hide when filming their Wild Africa Series, and they caught a crocodile attacking a buffalo on film.
We recommend you take a 3 hour walk to Mwamba Camp and spend a couple of nights there to enjoy the unique environs and character of both camps. Game viewing here is intensive along the Luangwa River, while the open plains and mopane forests at Mwamba Camp offer a different environment.
This National Park, as the name suggests, is the southernmost of the country’s parks, lying in the valley of the Luangwa River. Covered in woodlands and savannahs, the park is most famous for its predators, as well as giraffe, hippo and zebra.
