Shamvura Camp offers visitors more than 15km of a pristine river system with a vast adjoining floodplain
created by the confluence of Cuito and Okavango rivers. Situated high on a prominent sand dune, fronted by
the meandering Okavango River, this location affords the visitor some spectacular vistas of up to 30km over
the river into the Angolan floodplains. They also have the added advantage of being surrounded by both
climax riverine forest, woodland and extensive floodplains creating a haven for a large diversity of fish, birds
and other wildlife.
During the rainy months (December-April) when the river rises, the surrounding wetland becomes a vast
expanse of water and reed vegetation. These area are vital breeding grounds to almost 90 species of fish.
This becomes a food haven for over 60 species of wetland birds and several rare reptile and amphibian species.
The property has one of the last remnants of a natural riverine forest compromising mainly of Knobthorn Acacia
(Acasia nigrescens), Baobab (Andansonia digitata) and Wild Fig (Ficus spp).
Shamvura Camp strives to offer our guests personalised service, offering a range of accommodation and
activities, including river boat trips, for keen fresh water anglers and excellent birding. We also cater for those
who just wish to experience the Okavango River at sunset. We offer specialist bird guiding in the surrounding
woodland area, with experienced and expert guides available. For those who wish to just relax they are
welcome to make use of our pool or unwind on our deck overlooking the stunning river view and floodplains.
