Key Info

Two bush style chalets, situated in a beautiful remote area in South Luangwa, Zambia. This is a paradise for the adventurous self drive tourist appreciating an abundance of wildlife, adore fishing with stunning views from their chalet. Get a true bush camp experience with your own twist with your own car or hire a gamedrive car with or without a guide.

The two bush styled chalets are overlooking the Luangwa River. Chalets offer you a luxury bed for two, shower, sink, toilet and a side room (for 2 extra beds if needed). In total, we can accommodate 8 guests. The chalets are about 50 mtrs from each other and you will find an outside kitchen with freezer and kitchen facilities. Lights are on solar.

You come with your own (rental) car, bring your own food and drinks.

The area is full of wildlife. You will see hippo's and crocs from your chalet in the river and many other animals (like elephants, Giraffes, pukus, impala, bushbuck, waterbuck) nearby. The entrance of the South Luangwa Park is not far, but you will enjoy wildlife as much in the Park as you will around you.

Note: If required, we can arrange car-hire (also open gamedrive car), transport with driver/guide, safari drives, safari walks, food/drink supplies, cook or a guide for you with third party providers. Please contact us.

If you are looking for the true African bush experience, Malama Umoyo is the place!

The Eastern Province/Zambia region

Malama Umoyo is situated in one of the GMA's (Game Management Areas) adjacent to the South Luangwa National Park. This wildlife park is one of the most beautiful parks in Africa with an abundance of wildlife. South Luangwa is in the South East of Zambia in the Eastern Province, not far from Malawi.

South Luangwa

Malama Umoyo is within the Lower Lupande Area, about 40km from Mfuwe and 130km from Petauke. From both sides you can reach Malama Umoyo, which is in the Malama Chiefdom. The area is still unspoiled, wild, remote and without tourists. Here you will find a true wildlife experience, with Malama Umoyo as your camp in the bush. Nearby is the entrance to the park, but also in Malama you will see many many animals, see the Chindeni Hills and hot water springs. Driving from either Petauke or Mfuwe to Malama is a once i a lifetime experience.

"A place to feel Africa"

Away from the busy and touristic area of the South Luangwa National Park, Malama is a real nest in the African bush. Stunning views of the river, wildlife, brand new beautiful chalet and facilities. E… More
