Nkonzi Camp

This small intimate camp is set on the dry Mushilashi River and has this area of the Park pretty much to itself.

Accommodation is in fairly simple, Meru-style tents, whilst the camp is comfortable enough the emphasis here is on the safari experience rather than the frills of camp. Game-viewing will be a mixture of walking and driving safaris. 

The walk-in safari tents are a mix of back-to-nature charm and safari comfort. Each has an open-air ensuite bathroom (with hot water bucket showers and flushing loos), wooden-framed double or twin beds with crisp cotton linen, canvas safari chairs and solar-powered lighting. There are only four of them accommodating a maximum of eight guests at any one time so you will always receive the personalised holiday experience.

Next to the river are several sofas, shaded by the trees and positioned perfectly to keep an eye on the comings and goings around camp. Often everyone congregates here for early morning tea and coffee around the fire and pre- and post-dinner drinks. Because Nkonzi is deep inside South Luangwa National Park, that means that they are not connected to a mains electricity supply. They use solar powered lamps and candles and make use of a small solar charging unit for camera batteries.
