Mwaleshi Camp

Mwaleshi Camp encapsulates the rejuvenating simplicity and purity of a bushamp. Unpretentious, but remarkably comfortable, this is the perfect escape for people looking to head off the beaten track and explore some of the more remote parts of Zambia by foot.

Location
This secluded camp is set in a wild stretch of North Luangwa National Park on the scenic Mwaleshi River. You’ll be sleeping in a chalet set right on the banks of the river, which not only promises beautiful views, but also offers a great spot to cool off in the heat of the day.

Wildlife viewing is excellent here; keep your eye out for elephant, giraffe, wild dog, lion, zebra, hippo, and antelope.

Accommodation
When we refer to this camp as small, it’s no exaggeration. There are just four thatched chalets here, making for a truly private and authentic safari experience. Your chalet sits on the edge of a river and is open-fronted, meaning you can look out over the water right from your bed.

You’ll have everything you might need for a comfortable safari including a soft bed and an en-suite bathroom with a flushing toilet and outdoor bucket shower. Each morning a pitcher of warm water arrives for washing. The chalets themselves are made of reeds and deconstructed at the end of every season (the camp is only open for a select few months per year).
In keeping with the adventurous spirit of the camp, the main areas are inviting and rustic. There’s a dining and bar area, along with a small lounge to relax in. Your evening entertainment here is swapping stories with each other, stargazing (the lack of light pollution here makes this something truly special!), and listening out for the low rumble of a lion’s roar in the distance.

The chefs at Mwaleshi are talented, creative and resourceful. Working with an open fire, an old cast-iron stove and an earth oven, they create sublime dishes. Think meals made with fruits and vegetables grown in the gardens at Mwaleshi’s nearby sister camp, and comforting desserts, freshly baked bread and cakes. Enjoy dinner as you take in the sunset, surrounded by atmospheric spirit lamps, blanketed in the sounds of bird calls and the rustlings of the bush.

Experiences
  • In a no-car zone; surrounded by remote wilderness; and accompanied by some of Africa’s very best guides, walking here, following the tracks and trails left by wildlife, is an unforgettable adventure.
  • Cool off from the heat of the day with a refreshing paddle or a dip in the river.
  • With over 400 recorded species, many with spectacularly colourful and vibrant plumage, the area is blissful for avid birders and non-birders alike.
  • For the most adventurous traveller, a sleepout is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the safari experience. You’ll sleep under canvas in a temporary camp right in the middle of the bush, the chirps of cicadas interrupted only by the faraway whoops of calling hyena.
