Project Description


The four chalets of Mwaleshi Camp are nestled amongst Mopane trees on a scenic bend of the Mwaleshi River. Located in the North Luangwa National Park, the camp is a 40-minute flight from the Mfuwe Airport or 30 minutes from Tafika Camp in the South Luangwa National Park.

Mwaleshi is constructed purely from natural materials but one still enjoys all the comforts with en-suite facilities and hot showers upon request. Mwaleshi is primarily a walking camp offering ample opportunity to experience the variations in the flora and fauna. A vehicle is positioned at the camp to offer short drives and to access walking areas further afield. Most walking safaris venture along the Mwaleshi River, the honeypot of the North Luangwa. Excursions to the Luangwa/Mwaleshi confluence, a mere 10km distance away, are most memorable due to the impressive pod of 400 hippos that congregate here. A day trip to the Mwaleshi falls is equally exciting and enjoyable.

In the North Park, one can amble alongside vast herds of buffalo and zebra as well as the endemic Cookson’s wildebeest. The North is also known for its large pride of lion and spotted hyaenas that have developed specialized hunting techniques. Bird lovers may come across some East African species such as the chestnut-mantled sparrow weaver and the yellow-throated longclaw. Subsequent to the successful re-introduction of black rhino to the Park, the chance of seeing these animals increases each year.
