Nkonzi Camp is a beautiful rustic bush camp set deep inside the South Luangwa National Park. The camp is a 45 minute drive from the South Luangwa main gate, set beside the dry Mushilashi River. Surrounded by pristine indigenous woodland and grassy plains, Nkonzi Camp is the perfect location for game viewing activities, and is ideally positioned for stargazing with zero light pollution and panoramic views of the breathtaking African night sky and the milky way that have to be seen to be believed.
Guests eat meals together in a shady grove of mature trees, and the small honesty bar serves beer, soft drinks and selected spirits.
Walking safaris are a speciality here - the all day expeditions begin and end at camp, starting early in the morning and returning in the evening. Unique bush breakfasts, cooked over an open fire in the morning light, are a true highlight of your stay here. The experience of tracking wild animals on foot is a memory that will stay with you forever.
Game drives (both day and night) are also an option, heading in any direction north, east, south or west into untouched wildlife habitats.
The camp has 4 tents and sleeps a maximum of 8 people, ensuring you always receive a personalised safari experience. The comfortable walk-in safari tents each have an en-suite bathroom, wooden framed beds with white cotton bed linen, canvas safari seats and solar lighting. There is a small seating area and storage for all your belongings as well, and each tent has either a double bed or twin bed depending on guest numbers.
The en-suite bathroom has a hot bucket shower with plenty of water, mixed to the temperature you prefer by the attentive staff. Being so deep inside the National Park means the camp is not connected to mains electricity, and therefore relies on solar powered lamps - there is also a small solar charging unit for camera batteries so you don't have to worry about not being able to take any photos during your stay here!
The camp is seasonal, and is only open from 1st June until 31st October each year.
All meals (including a complementary glass of wine with dinner); Park fees; transfers to/from Mfuwe Airport; a laundry service; and all game viewing activities (day and night) are included.
Please note: Rates do not include drinks.
