The first game drive we went on was the ride in to camp from the airport. We started out in daylight but traveled through dusk and then darkness and it was interesting to see the changes in the landscape and animal night life throughout the ride, culminating in a lion kill just before camp! Kaingo is a camp of superlatives... More

Kaingo is a true Safari lodge, The staff was great, our room was big and comfortable, very private. The balcony where we had a private lunch everyday was very nice. The little extras made a big difference, dust covers for the cameras, bean bags, all provided. . We spent one night at the elephant hide, the only disappointment was no... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights at Kaingo. What a wonderful camp. Izzy, Yvonne, Johan were super hosts. Our guide Meyam was amazing. A great guide and also a super photographer.

Kaingo Camp situated on the bank of the Luangwa River is paradise. Izzy and Yvonne welcome you warmly,and attend to whatever needs you have. Skye, who is the chef, along with his crew produce the most amazing snacks and meals. Patrick, our guide, has an encyclopedic mind when it comes to the animals, birds, and plant life. He presents the... More

We had a wonderful time staying first at Mwamba Camp with our fantastic guide Patrick and our wonderful hosts Matt and Charlie. The food was absolutely delicious, Patrick's guiding was 'the best ever' and we had so much fun with the Mwamba team we hated saying goodbye. We then transferred to Kaingo and also loved every minute there as well.... More

An awesome place. Slightly more sturdy than its satellite camp Mwamba, Kaingo has rooms, brick buildings and outdoor bathing ... But the comfortable accommodation is not why you are here - it's the feel of the camp, the staff and the place. Located on the bank of the river there are always hippos, crocs and elephants about. oh Monkeys too.... More

Shenton Safaris runs two camps in South Luangwa National Park (Kaingo and Mwamba): We stayed in both—very different experiences, both excellent! Kaingo Camp is closest to the main gate where there is a great concentration of animals, both the two- and four-footed kind. We were there for four days during "shoulder" season, so tourist concentration may not have been as... More

Why does one who live thousands of miles away keeps on returning to the same place? This place is special. Game viewing is world class. Ever seen a pride of 18 lions coming down a hill, then stopping by a brook to have a drink and end up by jumping across the water? What about a herd of buffaloes drinking... More

Beautiful location overlooking Luangwa River with its hippos and crocs. Cabins are very comfortable and clean. Camp team was great and looked after us very well. Guides were excellent, not only with their wildlife knowledge but in finding and maximising photo opportunities. We took lots of excellent photos and memories that will last, at least until we return.
