We first heard about Shawa from the ila Safari lodge team who highly recommended it. After watching many videos online we finally decided to go. The entire staff were fantastic, efficient and made us feel very welcome. The food was great. The drives throughout the serene South Luangwa National Park were like nothing we have experienced. They were so educational and it was great to see so many animals (wild dogs, leopard, hyenas, giraffes, BLACK MAMBA and so many beautiful birds! We will definitely come back so that we can see lions. The views from our tent were incredible and surreal. We felt at one with nature whilst experiencing luxury. we were also impressed by Green Safaris's continued commitment towards supporting conservation, sustainability and the local community. We have so many great memories of our stay at Shawa camp and will definitely recommend it to everyone!

The camp is located just outside the national park across the Luangwa River. Access was through park main entrance and boat cross to the camp. Nature has been minimally disturbed and vegetation engulfs the camp which is only viable when you get really close. The experience gets you as close to nature as you can safely get. The tents are almost not there with only netting keep them wild out giving excellent panoramic views of the river. The staff are wonderful from the manager to the chef, guide, spotters, chef servers and all admin staff. No request was brushed aside. The sighting were only enhanced by the expertise of the guide and spotter at Night with leopard spotting that appeared impossible to explain. Every meal was a pleasant surprise to the senses with exquisite presentation and taste. Outside showers, infloor bathtub and solar power used for everything including charging the electric landcruiser made this a surreal excursion

We have heard and read much about Shawa Luangwa Camp but nothing could prepare us for the warmth and professional hospitality of the team at the lodge. In fact, we believe that our wonderful visit was not so much defined by all the magnificent offerings of the South Luangwa National Park, but rather by the quality and intimate attention of the team at Shawa Luangwa Camp. Thank you for going out of your way to assist me late in the evening to ensure that I could deal with challenges at my office, the very special celebration of my son’s birthday and the sumptuous sandwiches, etc. to sustain on us the journey by road back to Lusaka. We will cherish this special visit to the South Luangwa National Park and look forward to spread the word wide of what is on offer by Green Safaris.

Killian and Mr. Shawa were brilliant! Amazing safari drives and best of all their 4x4 cars are electric which meant less noise so we spotted a whole lot of animals and the carbon footprint is minimized drastically. A definite must visit for both local and international guests. Keep up the great job! 👏🏾

We are very proud of our Shawa Team, and it is always so wonderful to see their hard work appreciated! We are also still incredibly excited by our Silent Safari innovations, as the only company currently offering solar-powered game drives, river cruises, and even mountain bike experiences, in Zambia. We hope to host you again very soon, and thank you so much for your kind words. Team Shawa

We loved staying at the amazing Shawa Luangwa camp! The scenery next to the river is beautiful. The safari tents are set up on the river bank so you have an amazing view. We even had elephants during the day next to our tent and enjoyed watching the monkeys in the trees (no discomfort or whatsoever from the monkeys). Loved the outdoor shower and the bath tub in the room. You feel completely part of nature. The staff is amazing and helpful. They made us feel welcome and we really enjoyed staying there. The food is also great! We had wonderful experiences on game drives and saw a lot of wildlife. The landscape is magnificent and diverse and our guide did his best to give us the best experience. We also love that Green Safaris invests in sustainability at their lodges. They have e-vehicles so you experience a silent game drive and even get to feel closer to nature without the sounds of the car. Definitely recommend this place!

Thank you so much for this wonderful review, Esther. We also especially love that we have the opportunity to invest in sustainability across the board at all of our properties as well as in the pristine communities and ecosystems where we operate. It is at the core of our business method: to give back to Africa as much as we create magical experiences for travellers from around the world. We hope to host you again very soon, either at Shawa or at one of our other properties in Zambia and Malawi. Team Shawa
