Authentic, sustainable Africa.
Gavin Opie Safaris is passionate about preserving and sharing the beauty of the South Luangwa National Park and all its glorious thrills. It’s a wild and unpretentious place and our camp is a charming reflection of this. Here you can immerse yourself in the African bush, far from the cares of the modern world.
Our expeditions are designed for adventurous travellers who seek the thrill of hearing lions roar in the night and find comfort in the sounds and smells of the wilderness.
A blissful abandon from the mundane awaits you at Nkonzi Camp, hidden away in one of the least visited and yet most game-prolific areas of the South Luangwa National Park.
Before we visited Nkonzi I was very nervous of sleeping in a tent with wild animals roaming freely outside at night. But once we arrived I was completely put at ease by the camp staff...
It may only have been 3 days but it was packed with fun and rich rides! Gavin, thank you for the extra miles you have gone to accommodate us and make our trip extremely memorable.
For me, the highlight was the one-day expedition drive in the Park, just us and the animals, no obvious impact from humans. We also had excellent sightings of leopard and the night time dinners at the camp
