DISCOVER THE AUTHENTIC SAFARI EXPERIENCE AND COME TAKE A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE Located in the heart of North Luangwa on the banks of the Mwaleshi river lies Buffalo Camp. Pioneers of walking safaris in North Luangwa, the Harvey family has kept a proud tradition for over 50 years in providing the ultimate experience in walking safaris.

Thank you very much Catherine for your review.! It was brilliant having the three of you at Buffalo and I am glad you enjoyed it.

Best time of year for a visit is September/October although the camp is open from June till November and there is plenty to see all season. Optimum length of stay would be 4 nights which give you 3 full days there. Hope this of help.

"There are 5 chalets. Quaint and rustic go no way to describe them. You are lucky to be here. Enjoy."
"All chalets have a view of the river"
"All the rooms are excellent but Room 1 apparently gets visited by elephants!!"
"Get a good spotlight to view the wildlife outside your chalet at night."
"If you need a twin room stress this as most chalets only have a narrow double bed"
