fall asleep under canvas

A small but passionate team with over 35 years’ experience exploring Zambia. They don’t have millionaire investors or overseas headquarters, but they do have a deep love for what they do and a passion for sharing the magic of the South Luangwa National Park with you.

A simple and stylish bush camp, where you can fall asleep under canvas to the sounds of the African night, shower under the stars, and sip steaming mugs of coffee brewed over the campfire as the sun rises. A truly personalised experience: with only eight guests at any one time, you will really connect with the wonderful Zambian team, learn about their lives, and share your own experiences. From the moment you walk out your tent you are on safari in one of Africa's finest destinations... South Luangwa National Park, surrounded by pristine grassy plains and ancient forests. As remote and unspoiled as Nkonzi Camp is, it's also very accessible. South Luangwa main gate is a 45 minute drive, and Mfuwe International Airport is approximately 1.5 hours from camp.

Nkonzi Camp is a fully eco-friendly camp with almost no environmental footprint. Accommodation is provided in four walk-in safari tents. Each tent has wooden framed beds with white cotton bed linen, a canvas storage unit and solar lighting system. Experience the en-suite bush bathroom with a basin, flush toilet and hot water delivered by the staff for a bucket shower. Outside each tent is a seating area with canvas director's chairs. The 'honeymoon' tent has an additional seating area attached with Moroccan style floor coverings, daybed, oversized cushions and shade sail. Meals are served in the main camp area, in a shady grove of mature trees. The Milky Way Braai is cooked and served in the dry river bed underneath the stars - this is the final evening meal of the safari and a very special dinner. A small honesty bar serves cold beer, soft drinks and selected spirits. Nkonzi camp is fully off-grid, with no phone signal or internet connectivity.

Walking safaris begin and end at camp, while 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.

Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
