Shawa Luangwa Camp

South Luangwa National Park, Zambia - Classic 4

Shawa Luangwa Camp is situated on the eastern bank of the Luangwa River on a site hand-picked by Jacob Shawa, the Head Professional Guide at camp. From this beautiful location, you can cross the river on a pontoon or boat and explore the prime game-viewing areas of the South Luangwa National Park.

Jacob Shawa is not only a legendary Zambian guide; he is also the inspiration behind building Shawa Luangwa Camp in the first place. Jacob was brought up in the Luangwa Valley and his interest in wildlife started when he was young. Whilst he was completing secondary school at Mambwe High School (at the time the only secondary school in the Valley) Jacob’s passion for wildlife was so evident that he was named Chairman of the Wildlife Conservation Club for the school.
