Tucked under shady baobab and fever trees on the banks of the beautiful Shire River in Liwonde National Park, Kuthengo Camp provides rustic charm with modern comforts.
Accommodations at this cozy camp consist of just four spacious safari tents with a choice between two twin tents, one king tent, and one family tent. Each tent is fitted with modern furnishings and uses an eco-friendly evening breeze air conditioning cooling system for the bed within the mosquito net. The en suite rooms include a luxurious bathtub, unique double vanity, and a romantic outdoor shower. However, the room’s best feature is the private deck where guests can sit with a cool drink and watch the waterbucks amble past.
The camp is located in the popular Liwonde National Park on the southern tip of Lake Malombe in the south of Malawi. The park encompasses 220-square miles of diverse landscapes with dry Mopani woodlands in the east and more tropical palm savannah and baobab trees in the floodplains near the Shire River. The Shire River is home to hippos, Nile crocodiles, and plenty of elephants as Liwonde boasts the highest population of elephants in Malawi. Other big game animals found here include sable antelope, impala, waterbuck, reedbuck, warthog, kudu, yellow baboon, pangolin, monitor lizards, leopard, and vervet monkeys. With the highest year-round bird watching in Central and Southern Africa, Liwonde enjoys over 400 bird species.
