Project Description


Nkwali Camp is located on Robin Pope Safaris’ private land, overlooking the South Luangwa National Park. The land is superb game viewing country, with a beautiful area of ebony woodland and open grass plains. Elephants often cross the Luangwa, seen from the bar, or come to the waterhole near the thatched dining room. The chalets are cool and spacious, with a view of the river. One double, four twins and a honeymoon suite/family suite. Throughout the year we have direct access from camp to the park by boat, vehicle or on foot. During the dry months we operate a pontoon into the more southern part of the area.

Robin Pope Safaris was established in 1986 is a family run business with several properties in South Luangwa National Park as well as across the borders in Malawi and Zimbabwe.

Family-owned and run Robin Pope Safaris, established in 1986, offers highly personalised authentic African safari experiences in small and intimate properties across Zambia (South Luangwa National Park), Malawi (Majete Wildlife Reserve, Liwonde National Park and Lake Malawi), and Zimbabwe (Mana Pools). An incredible combination of safari and beach breaks, offering highly personalised experiences.

South Luangwa, Zambia is Robin Pope Safaris’ home, offering a selection of four safari camps (Nkwali Camp, Luangwa River Camp, Nsefu Camp and Tena Tena Camp); two exclusive safari houses (Robin’s House and Luangwa Safari House) plus two specialist walking trails (Luangwa Bush Camping & Mobile Walking Safaris). Known as home of the walking safaris, for those seeking to truly explore the Luangwa, it is an absolute must to experience the walking trails.
Across the border in Zimbabwe’s UNESCO World Heritage site of Mana Pools National Park we have John’s Camp. One of the last remaining wilderness experiences, excellent for walking and exploring the mighty Zambezi River.

These properties are complemented by our Malawi offering of Mkulumadzi Lodge, Majete Wildlife Reserve; Kuthengo Camp, Liwonde National Park and Pumulani Lodge, Lake Malawi.
