North Luangwa National Park
Mwaleshi Camp is a seasonal camp located in an extremely remote section of the North Luangwa National Park. On the banks of the Mwaleshi River it is 10 kilometers from the confluence with the Luangwa River and is a very small and simple camp with no frills or luxuries. The area is exceptional in it’s remoteness and is very popular for walking safaris.
The camp is only open during the dry season between June and October and is re-built each year from the local reeds and Elephant grasses. Four chalets all face the river and have been built to allow for maximum air flow with open spaces for windows and high ceilings.
Several steps have been cut out of the river bank that lead down to the fire area right next to the rivers waters. A small shelter has been built here with loungers and when the water is low it’s safe enough for a cooling dip.
The focus of Mwaleshi and the area is on walking safaris. No game drives are offered though there is a vehicle to drive guest to new areas for their morning or afternoon walking safari.
Mwaleshi Camp chalets are sparsely furnished yet remain very comfortable with chairs by the windows and one chalet even has a hammock set up outside. Twin or double beds are completely enveloped with mosquito nets and solar powered lights hang next to each bed.
The en-suite bathrooms are completely open to the African skies and the sand floors have been covered by locally made reed mats.
There is no single supplement. Camp out’s can be arranged on a minimum 4 night stay.
