Shawa Luangwa Camp
Green Safaris partnership with legendary guide, Jacob Shawa, not only inspired the name of Shawa Luangwa Camp; it created the foundation to bring Silent Safaris to the South Luangwa.
Like Green Safaris, Jacob fell in love with the Zambian wilderness many years ago and has been deeply connected to it ever since. The spot where Shawa Luangwa sits overlooking the Luangwa River was handpicked by Jacob and is one of the park’s most untouched areas.
Voted one of Wanderlust’s top 8 best professional guides and one of the finest people you will meet, Jacob is at the heart of Shawa Luangwa’s story. Each of the Luxury Safari Tents is individually styled for a modern under canvas experience on the banks of the Luangwa River. Two of the five Couples Tents can convert into a spacious Family Tent.
South Luangwa National Park is part of the Luangwa Valley, which is characterised by dramatic seasonal changes, lush vegetation and prolific wildlife that thrive alongside the Luangwa River. This complex ecosystem is one of Zambia’s wildest and offers a remarkable safari experience. Shawa Luangwa pioneers Silent Safaris in the South Luangwa National Park and Nsefu Sector, as it is the only camp that uses electric Land Cruisers to explore this sensitive ecosystem gently and quietly. And of course, your South Luangwa experience is incomplete without a walking safari led by the much-loved Jacob Shawa.
