Sample Itinerary

Day 1-3

North Luangwa National Park

Mwaleshi, located in the vast wilderness of North Luangwa National Park, is a 45 minute flight from Mfuwe Airport. Hidden within a scenic bend of the Mwaleshi River, the camp is a truly special and remarkable place, unlike any other. There are few roads in this remote area and the majority of activities consist of morning and afternoon walks, following existing animal trails through pristine savannah. All senses become attuned to the surrounding bush as guests experience the magical diversity of the area. Although the landscape is generally flat, the paths can be uneven, so lightweight, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Game is prolific and the North Luangwa National Park is the only place one is likely to glimpse black rhino, which, following their extinction in Zambia in the 1980s, were successfully re-introduced here. Mwaleshi Camp is situated within the rhino sanctuary, improving chances of sighting this iconic species. A Luangwa Valley endemic, Cookson’s wildebeest, are abundant in the Mwaleshi area as are spotted hyenas. Birders will not be disappointed and the local diversity includes species that are not regularly spotted elsewhere in the Luangwa.

Day 4-8

North Luangwa National Park

Situated on Remote Africa’s private land at the confluence of the Luangwa and Mwaleshi Rivers, Takwela has stunning views across a resident hippo pod to pristine bush on all sides. The area is known as ‘Chitukuko’ which means ‘place of development’ in the local Tumbuka dialect.
