Nkwali Camp

Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Nkwali Camp has six large suites with thatched roofs, cool stone floors and a private veranda with a view of the beautiful river and its stream of wildlife. The front of each suite opens to the view by day and closes to the creepy crawlies by night. Mosquito nets draped over the massive beds make a romantic scene of the interior and the bathrooms have twin basins and an indoor/outdoor shower.

The living area at Nkwali Camp lines the river with a wooden deck that hovers above the high water line in the deep shade of an old and well-nourished old ebony tree. Dinner venues vary from beneath the stars on the deck, beneath the stars and out in the open of the bush and in the cosy dining gazebo.

The convivial bar and lounge area makes a suitable show of the glorious sunsets over the river and the ox-bow lake that surround the lodge.

Access into the park from Nkwali Camp is usually by boat, though the river is fordable from about August to October. Mfue Airport is a 40-minute transfer away from the South Luangwa National Park, which is Zambia's foremost safari destination and one of the best in Africa.

Lodge Facilities

Room Facilities


Walking safaris; bush camping (optional extra); game viewing drives; night drives; boating safaris; village projects and community school programme.

The Luangwa River is almost dry in the peak game viewing season and full to bursting in the rainy season. From the shady living areas at Nkwali you look out over the river to the South Luangwa National Park, which often sends scouts across - elephant, hippo, lion and even wild dog - to make sure your safari experience is up to scratch.
