Nkwali Camp in Zambia.
Nkwali Safari Camp sits on the peaceful banks of the slow moving Luangwa River in the South Luangwa National Park, Zambia. The safari camp is both an intimate and remote luxury safari camp.
Nkwali Safari camp is located in an impressive area of rich diverse game country made up of beautiful ebony woodlands and sweeping open grass plains. Every day, large elephants and Thornicroft giraffes can be seen around the camp, often in large numbers.
To enter the park you’ll cross the river by boat or – in the dry season between mid May and October – by pontoon.
During the beautiful Emerald Season – between January and mid May – the Luangwa river level rises and you’ll have the chance to enjoy a boat trip up river, drifting and exploring the sparkling lagoons along the way and observing the animals and birds in peak breeding season and they congregate around the lush waterways.
As well as exploring the flourishing lagoons from Nkwali Camp you can enjoy an early morning game drive across the plains and through the pockets of riverine forest. Additionally you can choose to head out on foot with an armed tracker to really sharpen the senses. Or an exceptional window into the wildlife comings and goings in the South Luangwa is too enjoy a very atmospheric night game drive where youll have the opportunity to glimpse stalkers in the dusk. Additionally guests at Nkwali Safari Camp may also choose to experience a little of the local culture and visit Kawaza School and even stay overnight at Kawaza Village, the award-winning community projects supported by Robin Pope Safaris for more than 20 years.
In keeping with the pioneering philosophy and adventurous soul of Robin Pope Safaris, Nkwali Safari Camp, in the South Luangwa National Park, has been carefully designed so that guests always look out – to fabulous views of the bush and across the sweeping slow moving Luangwa River. The central bar and lounge area at Nkwali Camp has been built around an ancient majestic ebony tree and sports a traditional thick thatched roof, but no walls. The surrounding decking stretches out towards the riverbank so that guests can dine beneath the stars while gazing at the moon reflected on the river.
The chalets are incredibly comfortable and spaciously set out. They are constructed of woven bamboo with thatched roofs and huge open windows with views across the river. To the back of each chalet there is a large en suite bathroom cleverly designed to be open yet private, enabling you to shower and watch the birds fly overhead or monkeys feeding on the flowers and swinging through the trees above. Your evening meals at Nkwali camp are often served beneath the trees, beside a lagoon, on the moonlit decking or even in the bush by candlelight all of which are stunning locations in which to recount your day’s safari experiences. Refresh in the morning with a dip in the camp swimming pool which provides the best way to cool off during the hot season.
