African Safari Camp – Zikomo Safari

Zikomo Safari is an amazing bush camp in South Luangwa, Zambia. The diverse African wildlife and peaceful environment create the perfect setting for your African Safari. This remote location in the Nsefu sector of South Luangwa National Park is one of the least crowded and among the richest in wildlife in the world. It is one of the only places in Africa where you can combine traditional open vehicle safaris with the more intimate and unique walking safaris. South Luangwa National Park is regarded as one of Africa’s best wildlife parks. With our Zambian trained and licensed guides and our location both day and evening game drives are sure to provide unique photographic opportunities. Whether you are on a game drive, an exciting bush walk, visiting the local village or hot springs, camping, or just relaxing in a hammock Zikomo wants to show you the best of Africa.

Set on the banks of the Luangwa River under a canopy of huge shade trees, Zikomo Safari incorporates traditional African style accommodation with enough modern convenience to relax and enjoy life in the bush.

From the moment you are picked up from Mfuwe International Airport until you are dropped off for your flight home you are our guest. Let us show you Zambia in all its diversity. Awake to the sound of hippos splashing in the river and the melodious tune of birds singing to a day full of remarkable sights and sounds. Drive through the bush in the early morning and see herds of elephants, impala, kudu, pukus, giraffes, zebra, and wild dogs, and some of the best bird life anywhere on earth. During the evening prides of lions hunt, solitary leopards prowl and hyena’s cackle.

We are a family owned and operated bush camp, one of the only ones left in the valley. When you come to Zikomo Safari we want you to feel at home, because this is our home.

Make memories that will stay with you for the rest of your life all while supporting the preservation of wildlife. Zikomo Safari for the best of Africa!

    We stayed at Zikomo during August 2013 for six nights. It was our first time in Zambia and what a delight it was to enjoy South Luangwa from the edge of the river at Zikomo. Victoria, Demian, Zick and co were all very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We had a great camping spot under the big tree with views across the river. We did a guided morning walk and an evening drive with Zikomo both of which were excellent, seeing elephant close up in the morning and Leopard in the evening. For the rest of the stay we did our own self drives in the park and it was quiet, with few other vehicles so it felt as if we had the whole place to ourselves. Zikomo is just far enough away from the other camps to really feel as if you are in the bush on your own. Zikomo really does tick all the boxes and South Luangwa is the most stunning National Park. We will be back.

    Zikomo camp is a true nature with magnificent camping spots along the riverside. You can visit the national park or stay at your leisure in front of your tent and see the buffalo and elephant strolling in front of you. You can hear at night the sound off Africa; roaring lion!
    The staff is amazing. Friendly and helpful. The bartender Anton takes care of your cold drinks. Bushwalks with experienced guides. What can you ask more? We are coming back!

  • Awesome – Zikomo is one of the best we’ve stayed in. The host is very welcoming and always helpful. Pity we never had the chance to enjoy drinks on the deck while watching the world going by because of our busy schedule.

  • Great place in awesome setting – We spend 6 nights in SLNP of which 2 was at Zikomo in the Nsefu sector. Would definitely recommend spending more time in this section of the park. Game viewing in the Nsefu sector is amazing.
