"Nkwali Camp has an established quality"
It was a real pleasure to meet Robin and Jo Pope at this camp. There also was an informative talk about wild dogs by naturalist Matt Decker, which we found very interesting.
Our room was very spacious and comfortable, and it was such fun to view the hippos in the river from our windows.
We were especially impressed when we were treated to special refreshments by Aurelia ("Rails") on the "sundowner" stop during our final evening game drive." See all these reviews: 7n in Zambia
We went on a number of walking safaris as well as in the jeep and it was just fascinating to learn so much about the animals in this regard. who would have thought that Lion Dung would be interesting!
I would highly recommend Nkwali as a destination - we didn't want to leave!" See all these reviews: 10n in Zambia
"Nikwali was a superb place to start our safar"
RPS were just excellent. The guys at Nikwali set the standard for the rest of the holiday. We really couldn't fault anything. Everyone, including Robin himself, were so relaxed and welcoming. It was a great place to unwind and immerse yourself in Africa - with all the creature comforts of course!" See all these reviews: 12n in Zambia
"A first class safari at Nkwali"
Everyone we met there was very friendly and helpful from the top man Robin Pope who gave us a tour of the camp garden to the boys who helped around the place. Our guide Bertame was very knowledgable particularly about birdlife and we had some great game drives.
Nkwali is a top place to stay and to enjoy the South Luangwa even when it is raining!" See all these reviews: 5n in Zambia; 4n in Malawi; 4n in Mozambique
"Fantastic start to our honeymoon"
Our rooms were really nice and spacious and we had a fantastic view. The food was varied and delicious and the camp took consideration of our food preferences in advance. Nikwali Camp had a really welcoming atmosphere and we felt very at home. Our experiences of both day and evening drives was excellent, our guides were helpful, patient and explained so much.
We had the opportunity to tailor some of our activities which we enjoyed. Brendan acted as our guide for the most part and made us feel very at home and took the time to explain everything we encountered which greatly aided our appreciation of the area and the wildlife."

"First day in Zambia at Nkwali"
The Safari House far exceeded our idea of what it would be like & we'll probably never stay anywhere as luxurious again!" See all these reviews: 12n in Zambia
"A nice camp"
In retrospect I think one night is too short a stay in any one camp although appreciate it was closer to the airport for flight the next morning." See all these reviews: 9n in Zambia
