The Story

Set adjacent to the Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve, Rafiki Safari Camp is the spot from which to have an authentic wilderness experience. Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve is something of a birding mecca and this newly revitalised game park is now stocked with some of Africas favourite large species of game, making your wilderness safari holiday complete.

Owner-run Rafiki Safari Camp boasts spacious, en suite Safari Units, each with a private verandah, providing luxury accommodation, as well as, full camping facilities. All accommodation is family friendly. A beautiful Boma to while away the evenings, listening to crickets chirping, night-jars calling and maybe the occasional elephant making itself known. We are a self-sustainable, solar powered and eco friendly lodge and camp site.
