The LUANGWA VALLEY, which marks the end of the Great Rift Valley, is one of the last unspoilt wilderness areas and possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa. It covers an area of over 9000 sq. km. through which the meandering Luangwa River runs. The ox bow lagoons, woodland and plains of the valley host huge concentrations of game – including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo – and over 400 species of birds.

Day 1 A guide from Robin Pope Safaris will meet you at Mfuwe Airport and transfer you to Nkwali Camp through colourful village life and a bit of game viewing too. This camp is set on a wide view of the Luangwa River. On Robin Pope Safaris’ private land, and overlooking the South Luangwa National Park, Nkwali offers both stunning location and easy access to the park. The six rooms all look out over the river and have open air bathrooms. Meals are served looking out over the lagoon to the back of Nkwali or dotted around the camp, so you can fully appreciate the openness of Africa – whether it’s the clear skies or magical starlit sky at night!

The ten bedded camp is situated opposite the Luangwa Wafwa (a game rich area of the park) in the Upper Lupande Game Management Area. It offers all the creature comforts of a camp yet with all the intimacy, tailored activities and flexible mealtimes you come to expect from a bush camp. The camp is unique with its décor of locally crafted and handmade details. The main area is elevated between 1-3 metres on wooden decks affording great views to the park and river. The swimming pool is sunk into the deck, linked by a waterfall. Seating areas are all elevated and open plan with a bar area as well as a dining and reading area. Depending on your arrival time you may settle in for some lunch, siesta then off on an afternoon activity. There is an option to turn back after sundowners or continue to see what nocturnals you can spot, returning to camp by 8pm. LUANGWA RIVER CAMP OR BUSH CAMP
