Situated on a large forested sand dune and one of the very few high points along the Okavango River, Shamvura Camp offers spectacular views over the river and surrounding flood plains.
The Treetop cottage affords the visitor a birds-eye view of one of the last remnants of natural riverine forest comprising mainly of "Knobthorn Acacia" (Acacia nigrescens).
The surrounding flood plains comprise of Phragmites mauritianus reeds and patches of papyrus, and are vital breeding areas for almost 90 species of fish and a habitat for over 60 species of wetland birds.
Shamvura Camp is strategically located ±110km east of Rundu, just off the main B8 tar road to Katima Mulilo. The location is convenient for easy access to the Kaudom Game Reserve (±65km), the Mahango Game Park (±100km) and onward via the Mohembo Gate into neighbouring Botswana.
