Kuthengo Camp

Liwonde National Park, Malawi

Kuthengo Camp

Located in Liwonde National Park, Kuthengo is an upmarket camp comprised of just four modern canvas safari tents overlooking the Shire River.

Located in the north of Liwonde National Park, Kuthengo means “in the bush” in the local language - a most fitting name! This is very much a classic safari camp. It's small, intimate and eco-friendly, with the main energy source being solar power (and a back-up generator if necessary).

This camp is the latest addition to long-established Robin Pope portfolio of safari camps and lodges, so guests can expect immaculate service, highly qualified guides and fabulous food.

Days are spent on game drives in open-top four-wheel drive vehicles, giving full 360 degree viewing opportunities. Walking and boat safaris are also on offer, allowing for excellent river-based game-viewing, with common sightings including hippos and crocodiles, and the frequent spectacle of fish eagles and kingfishers swooping to the water. Commonly sighted on the river’s edge are Liwonde's large elephant herds.


Kuthengo Camp offers just 4 cosy safari tents. The canvas tents are generously-sized, featuring either twin or double beds draped in mosquito nets, and en suite bathrooms with outdoor showers. There is also a larger family tent available. All tents open onto a verandah with lounge chairs overlooking the river. There is also a seating area inside each tent.

The tents are airy with a large opening facing the riverfront; however should you need it there is an eco-friendly air-conditioning system that cools only within the mosquito net, rather than the whole tent.
