What can one expect, Mfuwe is a rough little country side town, and densely populated in the centre of town James, our guide, was waiting on us at the airport, and with all his self-imposed research of...

We had a super stay at wildlife camp. The safari guides were interesting and very knowledgeable and we saw leopard lions and plenty of giraffe and zebras. The food at the camp was excellent and the staff were friendly and very helpful.

Words cannot fully relate the camping experience at Wildlife. Every day was a new adventure, surrounded by the beautiful flora and fauna of the Luangwa River. The staff was warm, accommodating, and personable. The food was excellent and served with elegance and excellence. The showers were among the best we've experienced in Africa. The overall experience was further enhanced by... More

A grand arrival with elephant walking through reception. A campsite With access to power, shaded areas and shelters, clean ablutions, green grass to pitch your tent and a leopard hunting on the opposite bank from your camp. What more could you ask for? Amazing staff, befriending and personal. a must stay.

This place was a piece of paradise for me. We travelled with Nomad tours, did camping, so I cannot review the chalets, but the facilities offered in the camping were great. Very clean bathroom, hot water, swimming pool and nice bar to relax. The location is the best. Right on the bank of the Luangwa river you can watch the... More
