Africa’s Best Places to Hide and Get Close

Since 1992, Shenton Safaris has been creating tailored and authentic safari experiences for guests from all over the globe.

Two camps with exclusive star beds. Safari drives. Five world-famous, world-renowned specialised hides, with additional mobile hides. Shenton Safaris offers a wildlife experience that allows our guests to #GetClose in complete safety. Located deep within the South Luangwa, Kaingo camp and Mwamba bush camp are in one of the most irrefutably untouched and game-dense locations in Africa.

These camps and hides are created by the Shenton Family, a family of wildlife conservationists spanning three generations. Derek and Juliet Shenton ensure their fundamental values are lived every day in the camps, through the experience, the people and the location.

There’s a brilliant diversity of wildlife to be seen and game viewing vehicles have a maximum of four guests. The locations our experienced guides choose means clear views and a relaxed, opulent experience.

With a focus on getting up close and reconnecting with the earth, people will leave Shenton Safaris nourished, reconnected and planning their next visit.
