Sharwimbo Adventure Lodge

The Story

Sharwimbo River Camp is a magical place in the Mashi Conservancy. It has a prime position on a small hill overlooking the Kwando River, and its reedbeds, riverine vegetation, savannah and floodplains. Jochen Beckert and owner Ben Vermaak, the founder of Namushasha River Lodge, truly found the ideal location! Every tented chalet has a river view! The name ‘Sharwimbo’ is an old name that means 'the place of music’. Among the music that can be heard is the bubbling sound of coppery-tailed coucals, the territorial grunts of hippos, the ‘kwe’-ing of grey louries and the ringing call of fish eagles.
