Nkwali Camp is located on Robin's private land, overlooking the South Luangwa National Park.

The land is superb gameviewing country, with a beautiful area of ebony woodland and open grasslands. Elephants regularly cross the Luangwa, seen from the bar, or come to the waterhole near the thatched dining room.

Nkwali Camp has been designed so that guests always look out - to the bush and to the Luangwa River. The central bar and lounge area has been built around an ancient ebony tree and sports a traditional thatched roof, but no walls.

Decking stretches out towards the riverbank so that guests can dine beneath the stars while gazing at the moon reflected on the river.

This Luangwa River Camp is open all year and the seasons are basically divided into the "dry season" (mid May-October) and the "green season" (November- mid May).

Rooms & Suites:

The chalets at Nkwali Camp 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 a grill doors at night. The ensuite bathroom has double sinks and showers, which are open to the skies during the dry season.

Food & Wine:

The open deck is wonderful for moonlit dinners. The dining room is a simple thatched structure, by the lagoon but you will rarely eat meals there, usually dinners are served under the trees by the lagoon or the river, on the deck, or in the bush!


The bar area, right on the edge of the Luangwa banks, is built around a huge ebony tree with fantastic views of the river and across to the park.
