At Shenton Safaris we offer game drives (morning and afternoon), night drives, walking safaris, hide trips and special camp outs; we are the only operators in the valley to offer photographic hides.
Wildlife at Camp
Further game-viewing opportunities arise throughout the day from camp.
At Kaingo Camp sit and watch elephants crossing the river, a myriad of birdlife and hippos and crocodiles basking in the midday sun. There are bushbuck and monkeys around camp and we receive frequent visits from the local elephant matriarch and her family as they feed and forage. There is a large beach on the river bank opposite camp, which attracts many animals and birds. Easy chairs are set up outside each chalet and on the viewing platform or ‘deck’ below the main dining area for a front row seat of this real life documentary.
At Mwamba Bush Camp there is a hide overlooking a waterhole right inside the camp which you can visit at any time. Plenty of game frequent it to quench their thirst or for a cooling mud bath. The resident bushbuck, pukus and birds are seldom out of sight from anywhere in camp. Giraffe and elephant are a common sight from the breakfast table as are buffalo from the anthill look out.
Mwamba is well known for a prolific amount of wildlife in camp. Apart from the continuous chorus of birds you could also witness some of the night time visitors to camp, like an inquisitive hyena, a pride of lions, a leopard, grazing hippos, browsing elephants or owls silently hunting, and all this from the safety of your chalet.
The dawn chorus of bird singing at Mwamba is alive with the sounds of hundreds of waking and feeding birds such as the Long-tailed Starling, barbets, doves, Quelea, Lillian’s Lovebirds, Ground Hornbills and various ibis species.
