Discover Nkwali Camp

Operated by Robin Pope Safaris Nkwali Camp is situated just outside one of the last remaining true wilderness areas, Zambia's South Luangwa National Park. The camp's cool and spacious chalets are located on a bend in the Luangwa River. Surrounded by indigenous sausage trees and the dark green foliage of ebony trees, just behind the lodge guests are afforded a private game viewing area, to observe the many animals that casually stroll past camp. Exclusive access into the park is either by boat or across on the pontoon.

Providing great views of the river, the 6 chalets boast open fronts and open air en suite bathrooms, which include flush toilets and showers. The accommodation is comprised of quant rustic thatch roofs and bamboo walls. There are metal shutters that close across the room's open fronts and large mosquito nets are lowered over the beds at night to protect from mosquitos.
There are plenty of excuses to relax around camp, with a swimming pool decked out with sun loungers and a library and lounge areas. A unique feature of the camp is wooden decking that protrudes over the river, fantastic for game viewing. The camp bar is a focal point for meeting other guests, sharing a pre-dinner drink and hearing tales of the wilderness from the camp guides.
