Nkwali is one of three Robin Pope safari camps in the South Luangwa region.
Perhaps the most luxurious of the three, Nkwali offers stylish accommodation and fine dining together with a superb wildlife experience.
Nkwali is located on Robin's private land, overlooking the Luangwa River. The six thatched chalets are cool and spacious and there is a swimming pool. From the bar, built around a huge ebony tree on the river bank, elephants can regularly be seen crossing the river. There is also a waterhole close to the thatched dining room.
Like all the Robin Pope safari camps, Nkwali specialises in walking safaris led by some of the best private guides in Africa and accompanied by an armed game scout. Game viewing is conducted in the South Luangwa National Park, one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world, which is accessed from Nkwali by boat. Boating trips and game drives (including night drives) are also possible.
The area around Nkwali is characterised by woodland and open grassland and is famous for leopard and giraffe sightings.
