Mwaleshi Camp is one of the most remote and secluded camps in Zambia. It is one of only a handful of camps in the little-known North Luangwa National Park, one of the most untouched wildlife sanctuaries in Africa.

This comfortable bush camp consists of four double grass and pole chalets with en suite facilities. The chalets are set well apart and each has a scenic view of the Mwaleshi River, a clear stream feeding the Luangwa River. There is no electricity in camp and lighting is provided by solar storm lanterns. The bar and dining area overlooks the river. The camp is located at the heart of an area legendary for its abundant wildlife and in particular large populations of lion and vast herds of buffalo.

The remoteness is enhanced by the lack of roads and game viewing is conducted on foot, accompanied by a highly skilled and experienced guide and an armed escort scout. Guests should not expect to see as much game as they would at camps offering game drives, but the game encounters here are more intimate, and the sense of wilderness unrivalled. Walking safaris generally last three to four hours, including a stop for refreshments. The camp has access to a vehicle which can be used to explore Mwaleshi Falls, a little way upstream from the camp. All in all, this is a perfect location for those seeking a true wilderness experience.
