Our love for the Zambian wilderness meant that bringing Silent Safaris to one of its most iconic wildlife sanctuaries, the South Luangwa, was always written in the stars for us.

Shawa Luangwa Camp is a small, eco-friendly bush camp overlooking the Luangwa River in the Nsefu Sector. This is one of the park’s most untouched areas where excellent year-round game viewing and astonishing habitat diversity make it ideal for safaris by foot and vehicle.

Shawa Luangwa is as much about its people as the wilderness surrounding it. We named the camp after legendary Zambian safari guide Jacob Shawa, who has been such an inspiration for our team and the Luangwa community.
