Takwela Main Camp

Partner Camp

Takwela Camp is located in a secluded area where the Luangwa and Mwaleshi Rivers meet, offering amazing views of resident hippos and unspoiled wilderness in every direction. It provides a unique experience, allowing you to explore the pristine North Luangwa, which remains largely uncharted. While the floodplain may not be as extensive as in the mid-Luangwa, it is still a haven for wildlife, ensuring exceptional sightings as animals grow accustomed to the new camp. The park is home to a thriving black rhino population and boast various iconic wildlife, including lions, hyenas, elephants, buffaloes, leopards, wildebeests, wild dogs, and many other species. Visitors often find themselves sharing the entire park with just a handful of other individuals, making it a rare and intimate experience. Takwela Camp accommodates a maximum of eight guests in four en-suite chalets, with three chalets featuring two double beds and one chalet with a king-size bed. In line with our ethos, the camp is eco-friendly, powered by solar energy, and constructed primarily from local, sustainable materials, showcasing the use of local craftsmanship.
