Great place to start from.

It was nice to see and be recognised by some old faces, the camp still has all its charm with some very localised wildlife in the adjacent lagoon, the game drives are excellent with wonderful guides enable one to see Lions and cubs, leopards, Giraffe, Impala, Puku,Elephants of course crossing the river even venturing into camp, with one in the Lagoon every day,Carmine Bee -eaters as well as all the other birds we saw Cranes doing their mating dance.
Food once again excellent.

Great guides

On the first day we shared a jeep with someone who turned out to be a Birder. This meant we spent the morning focussed on birds and in the afternoon we switched to animals. clearly there had been previous conversations because at the end of the afternoon he was not happy and complained and I made the point that we wanted to see everything. they split us up the next day but in my view given his very clear bird orientation they should never have put us together in the first place. they had available staff.

Nkwali review

Big rooms with great view, great guide, delicious food. Pool area overlooking watering hole was very relaxing.
Enjoyed the river crossings. Park a bit busier here than Tena, but the guide did well keeping us away from other vehicles.

Fabulous safari at Nkwali

It could not have been a better experience. attention to detail was wonderful.

The staff were excellent throughout and Kiki's guiding was superb. We saw so much wildlife and learnt a huge amount .

On the game drives , it was lovely to be able to observe the animals' natural behaviour for long periods , while gaining the benefit of the guide's extensive knowledge.

The accommodation was luxurious and the food was lovely . It couldn't have been better.

sadly only overnight

It was lovely to revisit Nkwali all too briefly before heading off for the Mobile Walking Safari first thing in the morning.

It's like a homecoming

Our last stop- but closest to Mfuwe Airport

Our first visit since 2004 and there have been lots of changes since then to its benefit.

As in all Robin Pope camps all the staff were friendly and helpful with the sole purpose of maximising your experience.
