Are you dreaming of the ultimate safari experience in Zambia?

At Jackalberry Safaris we offer remarkable wilderness safaris to travellers with a budget.


We know that going on safari is one of life’s most amazing adventures.

And you want to make sure you’re getting the most incredible safari experience available.

So join us at remote and authentic Nkonzi Camp, for an extraordinary African safari that won’t annihilate your bank balance!

We are a small but passionate team. Gavin is our guide and fearless leader, and Rosie sources everything from carrots to carburetors! Between us we have over 35 years’ experience living in and exploring Zambia. In our time we have chased crocodiles across the Kafue and discovered evidence for early man in the Luangwa. And we love helping our guests create their own unforgettable experiences of Zambia.

We don’t have millionaire investors or overseas headquarters, but we do have a deep love for what we do. Our passion is sharing the magic of the South Luangwa National Park with you; exploring, discovering, learning, laughing, marvelling, connecting and experiencing. Together.

If this sounds good to you, take a look at our small and wild bush camp, Nkonzi Camp, where you’ll feel like you have the whole of the African wilderness to yourself!

We fully believe that you should experience a place rather than just visit.

With Jackalberry Safaris you have the opportunity to experience everything South Luangwa has to offer in the company of a passionate, experienced team. And what could be better than that?!

Before we visited Nkonzi I was very nervous of sleeping in a tent with wild animals roaming freely outside at night. But once we arrived  I was completely put at ease by the camp staff who escorted us to our tents at night and were around all the time if needed. And Gavin’s calm and confident approach gave me confidence in the unfamiliar situation – it soon became ‘home from home’ and  somewhere exciting and adventurous instead of scary!

One of the things I loved most was sitting out at night under the lantern-lit trees and the moon and stars after an al fresco dinner – unforgettable. I also loved the early morning breakfast by the camp fire before the sunrise game-drive – quite an endorsement from me as I don’t do mornings well!

It is a privilege to visit such a place, and be with such knowledgeable people. I felt that I had really experienced the African bush rather than just visited.

I would most definitely recommend Nkonzi Camp – in fact we are coming again in 2018 and bringing friends with us!
