Secluded, luxury accommodation, overlooking the mighty Luangwa river, close to the unspoiled southern section of the South Luangwa National Park. Book directly per night or alternatively as part of our exclusive 8-day trip.
There are not many places left like this in Africa: Located on a beautiful bend in the Luangwa River, Malama Umoyo Bush Camp is a small, luxury bush camp close to the secluded Lusangazi Gate in the southern part of the South Luangwa National Park – exclusive and private.
At Malama Umoyo there are no preset lodge schedules giving you the flexibility to choose an organised game drive or a self-drive option.
Game Drives in this remote part of the park allow you to truly experience the almost untouched African bush. A walking safari will really awaken your senses as you meet the parks occupants in their own world. On night drives you will have the opportunity to encounter the parks nocturnal inhabitants.
Relax on your cottage veranda or enjoy a sundowner on the large wooden deck as the sun sets over the Luangwa River where elephants cross, waterbucks come to drink and baboons play. Enjoy the abundance of magnificent birds whilst Luangwa’s renowned hippos serenade you.
Whilst ideal for couples, we can also accommodate families in our two bedroomed cottages.
Malama Umoyo Bush Camp is ideal for professional film crews or research teams.Explore More
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. Everything there is genuine and real. No one else in this area offers this. You feel like there is only you…… and there is! A safari should be about Africa only. This is what Malama is about.
We stayed in the two cottages of Malama Umoyo. We were warmly welcomed by Menno Witteveen and his team. We all loved it, a perfect African experience. We especially loved the thoughtful, comfortable and luxurious chalets called Adam and Eve; the unbeatable amazing view over the Luangwa River, our conversation constantly being interrupted by the sounds of the hippos, the elephants passing in front of the cottages during the night and the personal care and attention that we received from Menno and his team. Definitely recommendable.
A full day safari in the national park, showed the unspoiled wilderness of South Luangwa where we came across lion, elephant, giraffe and plenty of other game. We did not come across any other vehicles on our 10 hour trip, fantastic!!
We are still talking about our favorite place that we visited. Ah, it looks like absolute paradise, Malama was a place right out of heaven.
We have seen numerous campsites and cottages throughout Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana. This was definitely one in our top 3.
