Nkwali Camp is an intimate and authentic property offering understated elegance, seclusion and superb service in the heart of the Luangwa Valley.

Many places claim to be "among the remaining wilderness areas" or "one of the last wildlife sanctuaries." South Luangwa National Park lives up to both and more. The Luangwa Valley is vast, remote and home to both people and a truly impressive variety of game.

About Nkwali Camp

Nkwali is located on the banks of the Luangwa on a magnificent meander in the river overlooking the National Park where leopards roam along the bank and can often be spotted from camp. Situated on Robin Pope Safari's private land outside the park there is a private game viewing area behind camp as well as n exclusive access into the park either by boat or across the pontoon.

Rooms at Nkwali Camp

The six chalets are spacious and during the day are fully open to wonderful river views, in the evenings the Constantia grill doors are pulled together to close the open room fronts. The en-suite bathrooms are spacious with double sinks and showers from which you can enjoy the enormous African skies. Set back from the river on a lagoon are the dining room and swimming pool from which guests are often treated to elephants and other game coming down to drink during the day.

Wildlife at Nkwali Camp

South Luangwa is a paradise for wildlife lovers, with game species including elephants, buffalo, hippos, giraffe, leopards, and lions and over 450 species of birds. Several antelope species are found in large numbers, especially the puku and impala. Also to be found in huge herds are buffalo and elephants. Lion, spotted hyena, leopard, and wild dogs are the main predators. Though the park is popularly known as ‘valley of the leopards’, lions are actually more widely and easily seen. The Emerald Season brings huge breeding colonies of yellow-billed storks and from September to the end of October/November, there are the carmine bee-eaters nesting along the riverbanks of the Luangwa – an amazing and colourful site to be seen.
