Nkwali is set on the banks of the Luangwa on a radiant meander in the river facing the National Park where leopards roam along the bank and can often be spotted from camp. Resided on Robin Pope Safaris’ private land outside the park there is an individual game viewing area behind tent having exclusive access to the park either by boat or across the pontoon.
The six bamboo woven walls and thatch roofs chalets offer a rustic splurging opening up to grand views of the river as well as spacious ensuite bathrooms. Nkwali allows understated beauty, privacy, and excellent assistance.
The Camp: Nkwali Camp is overlooked by a massive ebony tree around which the bar is molded. It is this tree which, the founders Robin and Jo Pope found it cemented the location of the camp. From the bar floor cantilevered over the river, a refreshing drink can be enjoyed while watching the sunset over the Luangwa.
Six chalets spacious fully open during the day to the incredible river scenes, at dusks the Constantia grill doors are pulled to close the free rooms. The en-suite bathrooms are large with dual sinks and showers from which you can enjoy the vast African heavens.
Set on a lagoon are the dining room and swimming pool from which guests are often entertained by elephants other wild animals coming down to drink water during the day undisturbed by our presence.
