About Nkwali Camp
Nkwali Camp is located on Robin Pope Safari's private land overlooking the Luangwa River and the National Park. This is superb game viewing country, with a beautiful area of ebony woodland and open grass plains.
There is accommodation for 12 guests in cool and spacious en-suite chalets made of thatch and woven bamboo and all with excellent views of the river. Elephants often cross the Luangwa, seen from the bar, or come to the waterhole near the thatched dining room. The chalets are cool and spacious, with a view of the river. One double, four twins and a honeymoon suite/family suite. Throughout the year there is direct access from camp to the park by boat or vehicle. During the dry months a pontoon is operated into the more southern part of the area.
The Luangwa Valley, which marks the end of the Great Rift Valley, is one of the last unspoilt wilderness areas and possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa. It covers an area of over 9000 sq. km. through which the meandering Luangwa River runs. The ox bow lagoons, woodland and plains of the valley host huge concentrations of game - including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo - and over 450 species of birds.
