This amazing camp site on the bank site of the Zambezi is the most wonderful place I have ever seen. You meet only lovely people and everything is so flexible. The kitchen is very delicious. You can book with or without meals or also lunch packet for activities. We went to this place several times and we love it.

We enjoyed a lovely stay. The selfcatering chalets are very modern and well equiped. Staff is friendly & Kevin was a good host. The kids enjoyed the pool. All and all well worth it. The food was good with great service.

Their website describes this as "the best campsite in Africa" and the price is set as such. The camp site is very good, has power and light at each site, has a shower block for each site and has well manicured grass to camp on. Spaces between pitches are wooded which gives a pleasing degree of privacy for such a...

leonstefanus, Owner at Camp Nkwazi, responded to this review

Dear Red 110, please allow me on your unfair revue. A very small percentage of Zambians are campers, therefore power sockets were installed to please the majority of guests. We have never had complains before about hot water, as our boilers are fired every morning and evening, punctually without fail. You were very clearly informed that we offer Zambian residents...

We had a lovely stay in Zambia with a birding group from South Africa. It could not have been better. Emanuel was an expert on birds, the food was excellent and Kevin was a very good host. Thank you from Norway

If you like a secluded, spacious, private camping spot with green grass, your own ablution facilities and friendly staff, this is the place to go in Livingstone. Camp Nkwazi is 20 km out of town and it is a bit more expensive than the overcrowded campsites in town ($25 pp/pn), but what you get in return is almost perfect (unfortunately...

I was so impressed with this place. Usually nice lodges do not put thought into their campsites, but this one is immaculate. It has manicured lawns for you tent, and super clean bathrooms, with wonderful hot showers. It is likely the nicest camp site in Zambia. Further, you can use the internet at the restaurant/bar, and swim in the pool....

We run a safari company that focuses primarily on Southern Africa safaris. As imagined, Livingstone is a popular choice for our clients and given the amount of options available, you have a lot to choose from. I found Camp Nkwazi completely exceeded my expectations at every level. The manager Kevin is clearly very experienced in both the industry and the...

From the moment we arrived until Kevin said good bye at the airport, we were impressed with the accommodation, the service, and especially the people who made our stay so memorable. Chalet 6 was picture perfect. It was somewhat surreal to go to sleep with the sounds of elephants bathing in the river and wake up to the snorts of...
