We offer remote and private campsites in Zambia.

This site is located on the western park boundary of the North Luangwa National Park in the escarpment above the Luangwa Valley. The site is on the crystal clear Mwaleshi River where you can swim in the shallows safely from crocs. This is the gateway to the remote North Park from Mpika (two-hour drive away) and the Great North Road and the camp is situated near the Mano Gate entrance into the North Park. This can be linked in to from Mutinondo Wilderness (three-hour drive) and Kasanka (six-hour drive) on the Great North road from Lusaka.

This site is on the Luangwa River opposite the confluence with the Mwaleshi River, the jewel of the North Luangwa National Park, and overlooks a large pod of hippos. This is a four-hour drive from Chikolongo Camp, through the North Luangwa National Park and 5 hours from Kalovia near South Luangwa National Park. This stunning area is the perfect location for remote wildlife experiences.
Kalovia – South Luangwa National Park
This campsite is situated on the Kalovia Channel, a seasonal channel connected to the mainstem Luangwa River. This stunning site is nestled in the shade of majestic ebony trees and overlooks a substantial lagoon which attracts puku, impala, leopard and an array of other wildlife. A game viewing track runs from the campsite to the Luangwa River and north along the Luangwa to the Changwa Channel, famous for one of the largest hippo populations in Africa.

Mutinondo – East of Lavushi National Park
Mutinondo Wilderness is two hours south of Mpika and is a truly unique part of Zambia.

The camp site is situated near a beautiful swimming area on the Mutinondo River with a view of Kankonde rock across the river. This is a great spot to spend a few relaxing days or as a stopover en-route to the North Luangwa or Lusaka.
