Where is Nkonzi Camp?

Nkonzi Camp is located deep in the heart of South Luangwa National Park.

From the moment you walk out of your tent, you are on safari in one of Africa’s finest wildlife destinations.

We are surrounded by pristine grassy plains and ancient forests. This is one of the least known but most rewarding game viewing areas in the South Luangwa.

Our walking safaris begin and end at camp, while our game drives can head north, east, south or west into untouched wildlife habitats.

Nkonzi Camp is perfectly positioned for stargazing too, with zero light pollution and panoramic views of the Milky Way that have to be seen to be believed.

As remote and unspoiled as Nkonzi Camp is, we are also very accessible. South Luangwa main gate is a 45 minute drive, and Mfuwe International Airport is approximately 1.5 hours from camp.

For guests traveling by road, our small office near the park entrance offers secure parking for the duration of your stay.

Opening and availability

Nkonzi Camp is a seasonal bush camp. We are open from June 1st to October 31st each year – during the rainy season Nkonzi is inaccessible and left to the animals!

We have four tents, with either a double bed or twin beds. With only eight guests at any one time, you will always receive the personalised safari we are famous for.

You need to know…

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 Rates page for prices.

We hope you love Nkonzi Camp as much as we do and we can’t wait to welcome you on safari with us!
