Tourists fell in love with the remote wilderness of the Luangwa Valley and developed a special place in our heart for the South Luangwa. The spot where Shawa Luangwa Camp sits sheltered by trees on the Luangwa Riverbank, was hand-picked by a legend in the Zambian safari world – Jacob Shawa. Wanderlust voted Jacob one of the Top eight Best Professional Guides in the World, and we are so honoured to have him with us on this exciting new adventure.
In 2020 travel hiatus meant we had to delay the opening of Shawa. The Green Team took this time to get stuck into reforestation and growing initiatives to support the Luangwa community. Without our neighbours, the camp would not have been possible, and our partnership with them continues. Together with we can do more, and we want to build a better future for our communities, our shared environment, and the wildlife that lives there.
