The South Luangwa - Remote, yet comfortable Safari camps.
Nkwali Camp is a luxury safari camp situated on a private concession, overlooking the South Luangwa National Park. The safari camp itself has just six bamboo chalets constructed on stone floors with thatched roofs, the front of which are open in the day commanding superb views of the slow moving river and its inhabitants.
The entrance to the South Luangwa National Park is either by bridge, boat or pontoon. From June to October magnificent red and orange colonies of Carmine Bee-eaters can be seen nesting along the South Luangwa’s riverbank. The South Luangwa National Park has a diverse array of wildlife and the area is especially renowned for leopard and giraffe often spotted on many safaris. Along the riverbanks you can expect to see elephant, hippopotamus and crocodile and within the more shaded bush plains herds of buffalo sheltering from the sun alongside antelope and warthog. The South Luangwa is a bird lovers paradise, with over 400 species of bird to look out for the bird lover will enjoy exceptional bird viewing opportunities alongside, of course, fabulous game viewing whilst on safari in the South Luangwa.
Nkwali camp has always supported the local communities, by employing them as staff and assisting in school and water supply facilities. In return the communities welcome guests from Nkwali camp and you might even be able to stay overnight at a special cottage in the village should you so wish.
Nkwali camp’s six rooms are comfortably furnished, and all have en-suite bathrooms with showers open to the night sky. From camp you can enjoy game viewing on foot and by open vehicles during the day and at night with a spotlight.
Although even from the bar and main dining area elephants can be seen venturing to the waterhole nearby. Nkwali also has a large, fenced swimming pool perfect for a refreshing dip between game drives.
Tena Tena camp is located further along the sweeping bends of the slow moving Luangwa River set in amongst groves of trees and bushes which disguise the camp from view. From the main guest area the views of the Nkwali hills are breathtaking, and the camp itself exudes an old fashioned safari feel, comfort and practicality with the focus on an exceptional safari experience rather than camp décor. The six tents at Tena Tena are all carefully positioned amongst bird filled bushes. The tents themselves are traditional walk-in canvas style, with comfortable beds and furniture with en-suite bathrooms and hot showers. The veranda outside each tent offers opportunities for watching the elephant eat the winterthorn pods or the crocodile on the sun drenched river bank.
The area surrounding Tena Tena is rich grassland and bushy pockets which is home to a diverse selection of animals and many species of birds, which can be seen on foot and by open vehicle by day and night. Predators are dense in number around Tena Tena, with some guest seeing leopard daily and with many spotting lion, leopard, hyena and jackal during their stay in camp.
