This South Luangwa safari for solo explorers takes you to two friendly camps that do not charge a single supplement. Both offer game drives and walking safaris, and you will travel between them by boat!

Based entirely in Zambia’s brilliant South Luangwa National Park, this trip takes you to two wildlife-rich areas – Mfuwe and Nsefu. You will enjoy outstanding game drives and walking safaris from friendly camps that do not charge a supplement for solo safarists! And you will travel from one camp to the next by boat along the beautiful Luanga river – a very special experience.

The two properties we use are Nkwali and Nsefu. Nkwali is situated just outside the South Luangwa and provides an excellent introduction to safari! And Nsefu Camp is the park’s oldest camp, with a gorgeous riverside setting and a very adventurous feel. Both camps are owned and operated by YZ favourite Robin Pope Safaris.

On the first day of your adventure, you will fly out to Mfuwe to stay at Nkwali Camp. This property is positioned on the banks of the River Luangwa, within its own reserve. The communal lodge consists of a classic timber, stone, and thatch structure, containing a lounge, library, bar, and friendly atmosphere! Outside, there is a thatched dining space and a spacious swimming pool. You will stay in one of six bamboo-and-thatch chalets. Each chalet has well-appointed en-suite facilities, and it is open fronted so you can watch elephant crossing the river and enjoying a long cool drink without leaving your room! Other wildlife often seen around camp includes lion, leopard, and wild dog. You can expect to see these species on game drives and walking safaris too, in addition to plenty of herbivores. The nearest gate into the South Luangwa from camp tends to be quite busy, but Nkwali has its own pontoon so you can avoid the queues! Village tours are also available.

Board basis and activities:
Full-board accommodation, including all meals, a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, all safari activities, and a laundry service.

The second part of your trip is spent at Nsefu Camp! You will travel here by boat, along the very scenic River Luangwa.

Guest accommodation consists of six rondavels, or round houses. These are constructed from concrete and have simple yet appealing interiors. Activities on offer from Nsefu Camp are day and night game drives, and walking safaris. There are lots of wildlife highlights here, such as lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, hippo, and over 450 bird species!
