Welcome to Mawimbi.


The Bush camp is on the banks of the majestic Kafue River and offers safari activities both via the water and on land, sometimes fast and exciting and sometimes lazy and leisurely, always through an amazing variety of habitats and breathtaking scenery. With its fast flowing rapids and amazing scenery, this is a real treat for all looking for a unique and invigorating experience

Four large and uniquely styled canvas tents overlook the Kafue river ensure clients ultimate exclusivity. Each has its own en-suite outdoor bathroom with a hand wash basin and bucket shower that is supplied with hot water on demand and an ecologically designed “green” toilet. All of the tents are fully mosquito proofed, with two beds in the main area of the tent and a veranda overlooking the river for perfect game viewing and relaxing.

"The morning we left there was a dense fog that was lifting and it unveiled the beauty of the camp in every direction. We were also blessed by a full moon that lit up the camp at night. It is such a splendid place for people to witness the creation and the glory of God."

- Rob and Naomi 

"Set on the banks of the Kafue River, nestled amongst the trees, serenaded by lion, hippo, leopard; what a magical place. Friendly, professional, knowledgeable staff, delicious food, a comfy bed and ever-changing views of the river, we loved our time at Mawimbi."

“Our first trip to Africa, and definitely not our last! Waking up to a fresh kill 200metres from our chalet and finding a pack of 8 wild dogs, 6 of them pups, was an experience to remember forever. Nanzhila Plains Camp is a unique and rewarding safari destination. Thank you Steve and Cindy.”
