Sharwimbo River Camp

River Trips, Sunset Cruises and Other Activities

River trips 

River Trips are a popular opportunity to experience the abundant bird life, watch the hippos, crocodile and game on the western banks and experience the privacy and tranquility of unspoiled nature.

Birders Paradise:

Looking for the perfect birders paradise (over 350 species ) is an experience not to be missed for the novice bird watcher and the die hards alike. African Purple Swamphen (Purple Gallinule), the Majestic Fish Eagle, Pygmy Geese, Pied and Malachite King Fisher, Black Crake, Carmine Bee-Eater ( seasonal ) and many more riverine species frequent the papyrus lined banks of the river . This in itself is a privilege worth a visit .

Wake up with the White-Browed Robin Chats and Babblers in the morning and enjoy the symphony of the Bell-Frogs, Wood Owls and Night-jars after sunset.
