Welcome to Nkonzi Bush Camp, our small tented safari camp set deep inside the South Luangwa National Park. Unique, small, and well off the beaten track, Nkonzi offers one of the best value bush camp experiences in the whole of Zambia.
Nkonzi Camp is tucked away in a secret, exclusive corner of the South Luangwa wilderness.
We are 45 minutes from the South Luangwa main gate and set beside the dry white sand Mushilashi River. Surrounded by pristine indigenous woodland, luscious grassy plains and life-giving waterholes, Nkonzi is the perfect safari location.
Nkonzi is open from the 1st of June until the 31st of October, and sleeps a maximum of eight people, ensuring you always receive the personalised safari experience that Jackalberry Safaris is famous for.
Our authentic walk-in safari tents each offer an en-suite bathroom, a wooden framed bed with white cotton bed linen, a small seating area, solar lighting and clever storage for all your belongings.
We are passionate about being as eco-friendly as possible.
Our water is pumped from our on-site borehole and hot water is generated by our nifty solar geyser – no unnecessary firewood used here!
Your en-suite bathroom has a hot bucket shower with plenty of water, mixed to the temperature you prefer by our team. We use eco-friendly flush toilets specially designed to minimise water use.
Being so deep inside the National Park means we are not connected to mains electricity. We rely on solar powered lamps and candles and we have a small solar charging unit for camera batteries. However we would recommend that you don’t bring equipment that needs extensive recharging to avoid disappointment.
There is no mobile phone signal in camp or internet connectivity.
We have a permanent on-site management team. You can join us for a great-value safari package, or just a single night; please see our Safaris page for prices.
Nkonzi Camp is a unique, rustic and remote bushcamp. It offers a very special opportunity to immerse yourself in the pristine African wilderness without the 5-star luxury price tag.
We hope you love Nkonzi Camp as much as we do and we can’t wait to welcome you on safari with us!
