We, at Classic Portfolio, love wild, remote and untamed wilderness areas and the North Luangwa National Park has always been one of our ultimate safari, pure escapism destinations, and so we are very excited to announce the launch of the latest camp operated by Remote Africa Safaris.

Opening 22 July 2019, Takwela – meaning ‘we have taken off’- offers a rare opportunity to visit an unexplored area of the vast North Luangwa wilderness (over 4,600 km.sq) and is the perfect addition to Mwaleshi Camp.


OPEN: 22 July – 31 October 2019.

ACCOMMODATION: Built primarily from local, natural materials, the camp will be solar-powered and constructed with local skills. Max 4 guests in 2 en-suite chalets, each with 2 double beds. Two more chalets will be added in 2020.

ACTIVITIES: Enjoy game drives and guided big game safari walks, and explore different areas of the park.

RATES: US$ 523 pppn, excluding LCCF, park fees & bed levies of US$ 77 pppn. Book at least 3 beds for exclusive use. Single supplement rate of US$ 120 applies.

ACCESS: Charter RASAIR’s Cessna 210 directly to Mwaleshi airstrip in North Luangwa from Lusaka (2¼ hours), Mfuwe (35 mins) or Lukuzi (25 mins), followed by a 45-minute game drive into Takwela Camp (or enjoy a 3½-hour walking safari to camp).


There is something special and soul-enriching about experiencing nature on foot – the sights, sounds and smells become heightened. At Takwela, you can experience the best of both worlds with morning and evening game drives and guided walking safaris.

We recommend a stay of at least 3 nights at Takwela Camp, and it’s ideal to combine with Mwaleshi for an extended exploration of the North Luangwa National Park.

This is one of the last remaining true wilderness areas where you are disconnected from the noise of daily life. Finding places like this is going to be even more sought-after going forward.
