Mphingwe Camp is the perfect base-camp from which to venture out and explore exciting Mozambique birding hotspots in the lowland forests of Catapu and along the Zambezi River near Caia. The comfortable camp is located in the Sofala Province of Central Mozambique. Birding in and around the camp itself also provides opportunity for viewing several highly sought after species.
Mphingwe camp has been carefully built within the dense lowland forest and open woodland areas, allowing birds and wildlife to still move freely within the camps boundaries. The placing of a number of birdbaths attracts numerous species such as red-throated twinspot, green-winged pytilia, green-backed woodpecker, scaly-throated honeyguide, eastern nicator and tambourine doves amongst many others. The added advantage is that the birds have become used to human presence, allowing close approach and excellent photographic opportunities.
