About Nkonzi Camp

A unique safari experience in a beautifully rustic camp

In the early days, when we dreamt of owning our very own bush camp, we imagined somewhere small and intimate where every guest would receive personalised attention. We thought the tents should be rustic yet perfectly stylish, simple yet lacking nothing. And most of all, we wanted our camp to be somewhere remote; a place where we would have only the wildlife for company and our guests would have the best kind of off the beaten track experience… And that’s exactly what we’ve built.

Welcome to Nkonzi Camp!

The facilities

Our walk-in safari tents are a lovely mix of back-to-nature charm and serious 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. Best of all, 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 that we’re famous for.

Next to the river are several comfy sofas, shaded by the trees and positioned perfectly to keep an eye on the comings and goings around camp. We often congregate here for early morning tea and coffee around the fire and pre- and post-dinner drinks. Our meals are home-cooked, hearty fare, whipped up by our wonderful chef and if there’s one thing for certain, you certainly won’t go hungry at Nkonzi!

When are we open?

Nkonzi is a seasonal camp and we are open during the dry season from 1st June to 31st October. At this time, the wildlife congregates around the rivers and watering holes making for fantastic game viewing. During the rainy season months (November to April), the camp is inaccessible and we leave the area to the animals.

The nitty gritty

Being so deep inside South Luangwa National Park means that we are not connected to a mains electricity supply. We use solar powered lamps and candles and make use of a small solar charging unit for camera batteries so that you can still capture those amazing wildlife moments. Though we are able to recharge camera batteries, we do not recommend bringing elaborate equipment that requires extensive charging as our system cannot handle it. There is also no mobile phone signal or internet connectivity at the camp, just the pure experience of wildlife in its natural habitat and our ‘Bush TV’ – the campfire.
