Mwaleshi Camp provides an exceptional off-the-grid experience in one of Zambia’s last remaining true wilderness areas.
Set on the crystal-clear banks of the Mwaleshi River in the untamed North Luangwa National Park, this simple, rustic camp will take you far off the beaten track.
Mwaleshi is an exclusive, seasonal camp, only open from June to October each year and offering just four reed-and-thatch chalets. The camp is disassembled in the off season to preserve the pristine environment.
The camp focuses solely on authentic walking safaris to track big game on foot and see the park’s incredible wildlife at a more intimate level.
Although the camp doesn’t offer game drives, they do have a vehicle onsite to drive guests to walking areas further afield.
Set just 10 kilometres from the Mwaleshi River’s confluence with the Luangwa River, large herds of animals congregate in this area including elephants, buffalo, hippos, zebra, lion, hyena, wildebeest and diverse birdlife.
You may even be lucky to spot the endangered black rhino, which was reintroduced to the park in 2003.
The rhino are very shy and there have only been a few sightings in the past years, however a visit to the camp is also a great chance to learn about the fantastic conservation efforts to protect the rhino.
The camp’s guides are some of the best in the country. Knowledgeable and passionate, they will tell amazing stories and teach you about the secrets of the bush as you roam through the beautiful wilderness.
