What Our Customers Say...

“What a wonderful place this is- we enjoyed a stay of 8 days in June 2022. On arriving at camp we were mesmerised by the views from the dining area across the flood plain and the river and spent many happy hours sitting here watching the wildlife, accompanied by the hypnotic sound of the hippos calling. The cottage was clean, comfortable, spacious and well kept. The staff are friendly and attentive, always eager to talk about the wildlife you might see and hear and to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible. It is almost impossible to describe the atmosphere here, it is so special. Being on the smaller side to many lodges we have stayed in previously, Malama Umoyo gives you a really intimate and exclusive experience which is hard to beat.” (Haywood Family UK 2022)

“The privacy and remoteness of this bush camp makes it a must for any safari tourist. Nature is on the doorstep and you can spend all day just watching the scene play out in front of you. Ruth and Kevin Horne are great hosts, organising transfers, a series of safari drives, walking safari, sundowners etc - everything to help you relax and enjoy your stay.” (John Heathman UK)

“It’s difficult to summarise what charmed us the most in your magnificent bush camp given the wonderful experience. Breathtaking views, calm and quiet environment, your warm welcome, your professional team, the delicious meals and the quality of game drives.” (Charles and Julie De Bergeyck - Belgium)

“Thank you so much such an amazing stay. We’ve slept like kings, woken to wonderful sounds and sunrises, indulged in delicious meals, been enthralled by and toasted stunning sunsets with friends old and new.” (Knight family - UK)

“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.” (Jerome Hugonot, Australia)

“Real Africa experience in a awesome luxury bush camp.” (Mark Sarosi, CA, USA)
