Shamvura Camp is the only tourism accommodation facility within a 50km radius, providing access to visitors to more than 15km of a pristine river system with a vast adjoining floodplain created by the confluence of Cuito and Okavango Riviers.
Situated high on a prominent sand dune, fronted by the meandering Okavango River, this location affords the visitor some spectacular vistas of up to 30km over the river into the Angolan floodplains. They also have the added advantage of being surrounded by both climax riverine forest, woodland and extensive floodplains creating a haven for a large diversity of fish, birds and other wildlife. 
During the rainy months (December-April) when the river rises, the surrounding wetland becomes a vast expanse of water and reed vegetation. These area are vital breeding grounds to almost 90 species of fish. This becomes a food haven for over 60 species of wetland birds and several rare reptile and amphibian species.
The property has one of the last remnants of a natural riverine forest compromising mainly of Knobthorn Acacia (Acasia nigrescens), Baobab (Andansonia digitata) and Wild Fig (Ficus spp). 
At Strychnos Campsite, there are six spacious and privatised sites each enclosed with a reeded fence and served by a centralised double ablution block on a raised wooden platform with washing facilities and a roofed area with electrical plug points and lighting. Each site has a built-up fireplace with wood, adjustable braai-grid, a water tap and also a raised platform for tents. Exclusive camping is available at either Ushivi or Combretum tents, (when unoccupied), which have outside ablution facilities.

A large, private swimming pool and comfortable tree-top viewing deck is available to resident guests.
