Nkwali is located on the banks of the Luangwa, a truly renowned wildlife reserve, 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 Robin Pope Safaris’ private land outside the park, there is a private game viewing area behind camp, as well as exclusive access into the park, either by boat or across the pontoon. The camp is small, intimate and authentic, the ideal starting point to any safari. With a few more creature comforts than the bush camps, ease into the African way of life. Camp is dominated by an enormous ebony tree around which the bar is moulded. It is this tree which, when Robin and Jo Pope found it, cemented the location of the camp. From the bar deck, cantilevered over the river, a cool drink can be enjoyed whilst watching the sun set over the Luangwa. The six 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. 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, unperturbed by our presence.
