Mwaleshi Camp

Campground in North Luangwa National Park

A top-notch operation – at once luxurious, in terms of care from the staff, and relaxed. It's a bush camp with accommodation in four charmingly simple chalets made from reeds and thatch with open-roofed bathrooms. Walking is the main activity and that’s a fortunate thing once you’ve tasted the excellent food. Spotted hyenas are commonly seen in this area, as are buffaloes and, of course, lions.

The spectacular Mwaleshi Falls is another highlight. Most guests on organised tours fly in and out of the national park on chartered planes.
