Set out from any of these secluded, intimate camps and you will be guaranteed an unrivalled wildlife experience in one of the last unspoilt wilderness regions of Africa – the very place where the African walking safari was pioneered.

Mfuwe Lodge
It was a fantastic trip... everything went as well as or better than expected! We really enjoyed the variety of places and had many highlights with wild life viewing. Met a lot of wonderful people along the way!

Mfuwe - on arrival, we wondered if we should have just gone on to Chamilandu instead of spending one night at Mfuwe, but after staying there, we were glad that we'd opted for the one night there. The wildlife viewing there was the best of the whole trip, and we did both an afternoon and morning safari drive... they put on a lovely bush brunch on the day that we left. The cabin was comfortable and staff were great... seeing an elephant walk through the lobby was a highlight.
