Are you searching for a remarkable and totally unique wilderness experience in Zambia?

Then look no further…

Gavin Opie Safaris was established in 2007 with the aim of filling a niche in the South Luangwa National Park for providing high-quality, all-inclusive safari packages for visitors seeking great value. We’ve worked hard to keep our costs down (without compromising on the good bits) and we’re proud to pass those savings straight on to you. Exclusive doesn’t always have to mean expensive, after all…

Nkonzi Bush Camp, a stylishly-simple, eight-bed tented camp, is our base. Located in the heart of the national park, right where the wild things are, the camp is perfectly located to discover the unspoiled wilderness of the South Luangwa, on foot or by vehicle.

We may not have millionaire investors, silk sheets and plunge pools, but we do have a deep love for our camp and a passion for sharing the magic of the South Luangwa National Park with you.

Just imagine…

… a simple and stylish bush camp, where you can fall asleep to the sounds of the African night, shower under the stars, and wake up to steaming mugs of coffee, brewed over the campfire.

… feeling a shiver down your spine as you hear the roar of a lion, and a hyena slinks into the beam of the spotlight on your night drive.

… walking through the dusk-tinged African bush as giraffe peer at you from the shrubs and dainty impala leap into the nearby bushes.

…experiencing the bush with some of the best and most passionate guides in Zambia.

…a truly personal experience where each person knows your name and you can learn their stories too.

… knowing that you are treading lightly through the wilderness with a company that is committed to ethical safari guiding.

…the delight of realising that this once in a lifetime safari won’t break your bank account!


  • 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
