North Luangwa is utterly remote and wild - one of the few places left in Africa that can genuinely claim to be untouched. Miles from anywhere and only linked by flight or extensive skilled bush driving, the 'north park' is one of those places that safari nuts crave. This is Africa in its purest form, a place for safari connoisseurs and people seeking true wilderness.
A 45-minute flight north of South Luangwa, North Luangwa is one of Africa’s finest walking parks. In fact walking is the only activity on offer in much of the park - not because the park rules forbid vehicles, but simply because there are no roads and very few tracks. The quality of the walking camps here is stupendous. Show me more >
North Luangwa: where to stay
There is one absolutely superb lodge in North Luangwa. John Coppinger's ridiculously good Remote Africa Mwaleshi camp, a rustic yet high-quality 4-roomed camp that sits on the Mwaleshi river a few kilometres from the Luangwa itself. There is absolutely zero chance of seeing anyone else whilst staying here!
