Nkwali Camp overlooks the Luangwa River across from South Luangwa National Park.
The camps main area has a lounge...
... a small reference library...
... a wooden deck, ideal for a spot of bird-watching...
... and a bar - a great place to unwind and discuss the day's sightings.
The water levels of the Luangwa River vary enormously. See the dry season here...
... and this picture was taken just after the wet-season.
Meals are often served outside. We especially enjoyed dinner under the stars.
Unusual for camps in South Luangwa, Nkwali has a small swimming pool.
The rooms consists of six chalets situated under tall trees and overlooking the river.
Each chalet is open-fronted with shutter doors that are closed at night.
Though maintaining a rustic feel, each room is spacious and comfortable.
One of the chalets is suitable for families with two separate bed rooms.
All of the chalets have an en-suite bathroom, toilet...
... and an open air shower.
But the main atttraction at Nkwali Camp are the 4WD safaris and guided walks...
... which never fail to impress!
