Seasonal Trails Camp in the Remote Wilds of North Luangwa
A vast expanse of wilderness with few vehicle tracks, North Luangwa is best explored on foot. The perfect base is Mwaleshi, a remote seasonal camp dedicated to walking safaris.
Zambia is known as the “Home of the Walking Safari” because in the 1950s the first wilderness trails were started in the Luangwa River valley in the east of the country. Today, that area is protected by the Luangwa National Park and South Luangwa and Luambe National Park have one of the highest concentrations of multi-day wilderness walking options in Africa. North Luangwa is even more remote.
As well as Luangwa, Zambia offers enticing walking in the wetlands of Liuwa Plain in the remote west, in the vast central reserve of Kafue National Park, and amidst the riparian woodlands along the northern bank of one of Africa’s great rivers in Lower Zambezi National Park.
A must-see in Zambia are the mighty waterfalls of Mosi-oa-Tunya where shorter nature walks and rhino-tracking are offered by lodges.
