A Day at Kaingo Camp

Life at Shenton Safaris follows the rising and setting sun; the flora and fauna also change with the sun from winter to summer, whilst the warm welcome by the Kaingo Camp Family remains as steady as the beat of the African drum. Kaingo Camp’s heart is this African drum beat, accompanying you through your safari. It’s rhythm stirs you from your sleep in the morning, and awakens a sense nostalgia for this land, calling you to experience a profound and authentic connection with this beautiful corner of the South Luangwa National Park.

Through the winter months, dawn occurs later and the animals are more active throughout the midday. Whilst in the summer months, the sun rises earlier and sets later in the evening. This is a rough guideline of what to expect.  Each safari experience is tailor made and may differ from day to day.

Shenton Safaris’ game drives accommodate a maximum of four guests on our custom built, open 4WD vehicles. Comfortable, high seats allow superb all-round vision and photography. The vehicles have been modified to assist photographers with camera rests, shelves and bean bags. Our qualified and experienced guides will take you to game-rich areas deep within the park which are not commonly visited by other vehicles. Every year Derek Shenton takes on the mammoth task of creating our road network; this network is more than 80km, in an area of more than 150km². Where we maintain and modify our loops by ourselves with our own tractor and grader, we do so without being invasive and we are confident that we can show you the best that this amazing area has to offer without the discomfort caused by bumpy roads.
