Here guests may catch a glimpse of hyenas hunting puku in the shallow waters of the Mwaleshi, enjoy impressive herds of buffalo, the endemic Cookson’s Wildebeest and a large number of resident lion.
Set on a scenic bend of the Mwaleshi River, the camp thrives on its reputation as being a truly special place, unlike any other.
With just four thatched chalets built entirely of natural materials, en suite bathrooms open to the stars and uninterrupted views of the river, Mwaleshi offers you a genuine feeling of solitude and seclusion.
Life in camp is comfortable yet refreshingly simple.
In the untouched North Luangwa guests – accompanied by an experienced manager/guide and an armed National Park scout – enjoy the freedom of Africa’s vastness on foot.
Thanks to the availability of a vehicle – which drops off and collects guests – you are able to explore further afield either by vehicle or on a day trip to the Mwaleshi Falls, located upstream of the camp.

In an area of pristine wilderness where there are few roads the majority of activities are done on foot offering ample opportunity to see the variations in flora and fauna of the area and to experience the bush with all your senses.
Buffaloes roam in vast numbers and with lions aplenty, game viewing is excellent.
Cookson’s wildebeest, endemic to the Luangwa Valley, are abundant and spotted hyenas, particularly plentiful in numbers in the Mwaleshi area, specialize in hunting puku often in full view of the camp.
Explore this unparalleled remote wilderness, from the Luangwa/Mwaleshi confluence where 400 hippos compete for space, to the scenic Mwaleshi Falls, said to be one of the best sights in Zambia.
Better still, combine a visit here with the other camps in the Remote Africa portfolio and create a truly unique and unforgettable safari.
