Nkwali Camp

South Luangwa National Park

Nkwali Camp Location Map

Nkwali is located on a private stretch of land, overlooking the South Luangwa National Park. The area surrounding Nkwali is superb game viewing country, with a beautiful area of ebony woodland and open grasslands.

Guests staying here can often see as much wildlife around the camp as they do on game drives into the Park itself, including leopard, lion and occasionally wild dog.

The area is also particularly good for the Thornicroft giraffe (an endemic species), and elephants also regularly cross the Luangwa River or come to the waterhole near the thatched dining room.

Although the camp is just outside the National Park, the game drive vehicles access the Park by either by boat (2 minutes) or via the camp's pontoon (10 minutes away).

The main bridge across the river to the Park is also only 15 minutes away.

This particular area of the Park is accessible all year and so the game is very relaxed and used to the vehicles. This gives great photographic opportunities as the game allows the vehicles to get close.

The 6 chalets are large, cool and spacious, with a great view of the river. The front of the room is open during the day and then closed by grill doors at night. The en-suite bathroom has double sinks and showers, which are open to the skies during the dry season.

The main bar area, right on the edge of the Luangwa riverbanks, is built around a huge ebony tree with fantastic views of the river and across to the park. The main open deck is wonderful for moonlit dinners, and the dining room is a simple thatched structure, by the lagoon but guests will rarely eat meals there - they are served under the trees by the lagoon or the river, on the deck, or even in the bush.
