"Excellent walks, very exciting stay"
The scout Dave was also great : he was shy and talked very little but had clearly a huge experience and made me feel totally at ease even when chasing a lion track or getting close to an elephant. Finally we had two apprentices to become guide with us who were both very nice and promise to become very competent. More than once they were the first to spot an animal or a track.
The walks were great. We usually walked about 15km a day and one day we did a full day walk, whereby a jeep brought us up the Malweshi river and we walked back to camp (about 20km). I am very pleased with the wildlife we saw. This has been a fantastic experience.
The camp was great as well, very comfortable and the staff very welcoming and helpful. The only downside were some other guests : a group of elderly Americans who I felt were a bit obnoxious and bossy." See all these reviews: 9n in Zambia
Our favourite camp.
As with the other walking camps one is at the mercy of the other few guests. We had 1 night at Crocodile Camp with guests we didn't really like. Three nights here with them would have spoilt everything. It is the luck of the draw and we were lucky. We had morning walks and evening drives which suited us fine. Several guests at the other camps (who could have visited here) would not have wanted to walk. This would pose a problem with only one guide." See all these reviews: 11n in Zambia
"the new diamond on the crown"
Overlooking the confluence of the Luangwa and the Mwaleshi river, Takwela enjoys an unrivaled position in North Luangwa.
the infrastructure is authentic but first class quality.
Lunch was excellent as were the table companions.
