This is the most remote camp we have been to, and is quite different from the several (excellent) camps in South Luangwa, where the emphasis is on driving safaris. Here, you mainly walk, morning and evening. As a result, you may not see quite as much game, but the experience when you do see animals is much more exciting. We...

We had a marvellous 3days at this rustic camp. It is as remote as you can safely get in Africa and with only 4 rooms-maximum 6 walkers- very peaceful. You fly in- mostly from the owners sister camp, Tafika. If you were to drive, it would take 9 hours. The flight is a half hour and a great chance to...

I stayed here for three days in August this year. I really enjoyed it and found Brent to be a great guide. The food was superb, the service excellent and the reed huts were really comfortable. The walking was very educational and I learned a lot. However, I don't recommend North Luangwa National Park for the inexperienced safari goer who...

Under the wonderful flag of RemoteAfrica safaris, Mwaleshi is an isolated situated camp in the North Luangwa valley. Mwaleshi provides a peaceful rest between daytime activities that mainly encompass walking safari with the occasional drive. Set above and overlooking the river which at this time of year is a gentle flow, this is a beautiful, rustic camp, thus giving the...

First you must know what you are getting here as walking safari viewing is very different from the typical game drives in a vehicle. The camp is a flight away from its sister properties in Tafika and is the remotest Zambian experience. Dry season is very hot and dry but there is a river that runs through in front of...

We stayed at Mwaleshi Camp for two nights and enjoyed every minute. The location on the Mwaleshi river is just beautiful and the camp as such a great place for very interesting walking safaris. And lying in the river in the afternoon watching the baboons (and being oberserved by baboons).. can relaxing be more fun? We were amazed by the...

Our group of two couples spent three very special nights at Mwaleshi Camp. If you ever wanted to know what it feels like to be truly out in the bush you must make the journey to Mwaleshi. Although it is possible to reach this remote camp by road during the dry season the preferred mode of travel for tourists is...

We have been to Mwaleshi camp in June 2012, when it had just opened for the new season. It is a magic place on the banks of the Mwaleshi River. All the staff members, from the kitchen boy to the walking-safari guide, everyone did a perfect job. When you imagine that almost everything they need for daily business has to...

This is primarily a walking camp, but has some drive/walk options. The camp is in a beautiful remote setting on the Mwaleshi River with accommodation in four chalets, three of which have wonderful views over the river and beyond – chalet 1 does not. Whilst generally accommodating six people the camp can take up to eight, and having walked in...

A wonderful remote place for nature lovers. The food of Brightwell is better than you could expect it anywhere, well done! The river crossings are great, the landscape awesome. We were also very lucky on sightings: One Leopard across the river, one old buffalo bull, Cookson Wildebeest quite close, 6 different eagles at one day, hippos, pukus, impala, crocs, elephant...
