NKWALI CAMP

South Luangwa
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. 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 private land outside the park there is a private game viewing area behind the camp offering a large diversity of wildlife for short game drives, as well as exclusive access directly into the park either by boat or across the pontoon for most of the activities.
The six chalets with bamboo woven walls and thatch roofs offer a rustic luxury opening up to magnificent views of the river as well as open air en-suite bathrooms. All the 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. Nkwali offers understated elegance, seclusion and superb service.
 
Nkwali is dominated by an enormous ebony tree around which the bar is molded. 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. The bar deck is cantilevered over the river and a perfect spot to enjoy a cocktail or two whilst watching the sun set over the Luangwa.
 
For those seeking to get closer to nature and some adventure, a walking safari is the way to go. With South Luangwa being home to the walking safaris, there is no better place for this experience. In addition to walking with expert guides and armed scouts, daily activities include day and night game drives, seasonal boating as well as village tours.
