Green Safaris - Shawa Luangwa Camp

South Luangwa

Green Safaris partnership with legendary guide, Jacob Shawa, not only inspired the name of Shawa Luangwa Camp; it created the foundation for them to bring Silent Safaris to the South Luangwa. 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. This intimate bush camp offers an authentic encounter in one of Africa’s renowned National Parks, underpinned by responsible tourism practices.
