3. Takwela Camp, North Luangwa, Zambia.
If you are looking to escape it all and spend time in one of the most remote areas of pristine wilderness in Africa, then your search is over. 2019 was the first season for Takwela Camp in the North Luangwa National Park in Zambia, and wow, what an amazing experience it is. In 2020 the camp will double in size to 4 rooms!! This is exclusivity at its best, all run expertly by the wonderful team at Remote Africa Safaris who are true icons in the Zambian safari industry.
The North Luangwa National Park has long been known as the “walking safari park”, with only 2 other camps in the entire 4,636 square kilometres of park and both only offering walking safaris. Enter Takwela, the first camp in the park to offer vehicle safaris as a standard activity, meaning, for the first time, guests at the camp can explore more of the park than ever before. As if that wasn’t enough, the camp boasts an impressive 50km of virtually private river frontage which is a magnet for animals, especially as the safari seasons wears on.
Each of the 4 en-suite chalets is constructed by local labour, using locally sourced materials where possible and the camp is 100% solar powered. The result is a very low environmental footprint as well as providing crucial community upliftment, which in turn helps protect this precious wildlife resource, it really is win-win-win.
Only open from 15 June – 31 October 2020, Takwela Camp is not a “luxury” camp in the traditional sense, here the luxury comes from exclusivity, incredible guiding and awesome wildlife experiences. Read more about this amazing gem here http://bit.ly/Takwela
