Nkonzi Camp

Nkonzi Camp offers a distinctive blend of unique safari experience, outstanding hospitality, and expert guiding in one of the world’s most stunning settings. 

Each of their 5 walk-in safari tents has an open-air ensuite bathroom with classic hot water bucket shower, flush toilet, power sockets, comfortable beds and a fan. Attached to each tent, the outside seating area offers seclusion away from the main camp for guests to relax, and shade to escape the midday sun. 

 At the centre of camp stands an atmospheric Swahili Meru tent with relaxed seating, candle-lit communal dining area and a small bush bar. The perfect place to swap safari stories and soak up the splendour of a safari under canvas – private dinners can be arranged on request.  

Guests enjoy daily game drives and world class walking safaris, revelling in the solitude and rarely encountering others, as the nearest neighbours are more than 3km away. Conveniently located just an hour from the main gate and Mfuwe airport, guests have effortless access to prime game viewing areas. 

Founded, managed and guided by Gavin Opie and his close knit-team, Gavin has over 15 years of guiding expertise in South Luangwa and his passion for Zambia and vast knowledge of the country’s flora and fauna make him the perfect guide and host on safari. 

 Visitors to Nkonzi Camp are treated to breathtaking sightings, including regular visits from wild dog packs and frequent leopard and lion activity, as well as spectacular elephant encounters by the waterhole across from the main camp area. The night time and dawn choruses are an experience, not to be missed. 

The camps eco-friendly ethos shines through and they operate as a 100% carbon-neutral camp powered solely by solar energy, striving to minimise the impact on the pristine environment in the area. Through the use of locally sourced, sustainable materials, ethical guiding practices, and contributions to selected charities, they are devoted to sustainable tourism. 

Immerse yourself in the exceptional serenity and natural wonders of South Luangwa National Park at Nkonzi Camp.
