Shenton Safaris’ 

Family Camp-Out Special


We are delighted to invite Families to experience the adventure of a Shenton Safaris family camp-out!

Camp out 2

Families with children 12 years and older, that book a stay of 7 nights or more, will be eligible for a free camp-out valued at $1,500.00!*

This exciting experience involves camping out at a remote inland waterhole, under a mosquito net beneath the stars and is one of the most enriching experiences available on a wildlife safari.

Camp out

In keeping with Shenton traditions, we have designed an exclusive, boma-style enclosure which is open to the sky and allows sweeping views of the game-rich Kapanda waterhole.

Access from either Kaingo or Mwamba camps is by game-drive, followed by a guided walk into the camp in the late afternoon.

Walking 2

A senior safari guide, an armed scout and small contingent of camp staff are on hand to ensure your safety and enjoyment of this back-to nature activity.

Cold refreshments around the camp fire accompany a traditional Zambian dinner including nsima and relish (local maize staple with a delicious beef and vegetable stew).

Coffee is served with bush tales and folk lore as you keep an eye out for night views of this busy waterhole’s nocturnal visitors, which can include the local pride of Lions, a Leopard or even two, Buffalo, the local clan of Hyenas, Elephants, Civets, Genets, Owls and for the extremely fortunate, maybe even an Aardvark.


The following morning you walk through the bush as it awakens, returning for a light bush breakfast before you drive back to camp to continue your safari. 

Please note that Kaingo Camp is open to children of 10 years and older, while Mwamba Bushcamp is open to children of 12 years or older. Camp Outs and Walking Activities are valid for 12 years and up.

*Camp Outs are only available from May through to the end of August
