overview

Positioned on a scenic bend of the Luangwa River, Nsefu was the first Zambian photographic safari camp in the area. Set in the remote Nsefu area of the South Luangwa National Park, the camp offers the perfect location to deliver excellent game viewing and bird watching. Indeed, the main bar and lounge area is the best place to take in the scenic views and offers sensational game viewing without even leaving camp.

Morning, afternoon and night drives plus guided walking safaris provide ample opportunity to see Luangwa's wide variety of wildlife: elephant, lion and leopard are often spotted in the area, which also hosts the greatest density of hippo in Africa.

From mid-January to late March the Luangwa River floods but this allows access by boat into areas that are inaccessible at other times of the year and provides a unique game viewing experience. Another special experience at Nsefu is the overnight walking safari through Luangwa's most rewarding riverine areas to end at a fly camp - a simple bush camp that sleeps four people.

Breakfasts and light, healthy lunches are served buffet-style while dinners are a social occasion enjoyed in the central dining area or in a large thatched shelter downstream from camp and with views of the Luangwa River.

Nsefu's bar overlooks a waterhole which makes it the perfect location to grab a drink, sit down and watch out for animals, especially leopards at night.

Standard Rondavel

Nsefu's original six brick rondavels – traditional round and thatched buildings – have been superbly renovated to include a spacious, open-air en suite bathroom with wilderness views and a private wooden deck where you can relax and watch wildlife pass by your front door.

"I just love the original rondavels at this camp and it's remote setting on a wide bend of the Luangwa River offering panoramic views. We enjoyed fantastic game viewing right from the bar overlooking a lush lagoon. But what I loved the most was a morning game drive followed by a picnic lunch at the nearby salt pans and hot springs."
