See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Nsolo Bush Camp

Nsolo Bush Camp is situated on a bend in the Luwi sand river that runs through the heart of Zambia's South Luangwa National Park, just three hours' walk from Luwi Bushcamp.

Accommodation in this luxury safari camp consists of four individually designed chalets each on raised wooden decks with high thatched roofs and private verandahs. The rooms are very spacious with the stylish furnishings that one would expect from one of Zambia's luxury walking safari camps.

At Nsolo you don't usually have to search hard for your African safari experience. The wildlife frequents a waterhole in the dry river-bed in front of the camp and often your most exciting game viewing is from the comfort of your own deck or from the central chitenje that houses the bar and small camp library.

Similar to Luwi Bushcamp, this is one of the South Luangwa's more remote, luxury walking safari camps and there is only a limited network of roads in this area. As a result most of the game viewing activities are centered on walking safaris although short night drives are usually offered as well.

The Luwi river system is renowned for its lion population. Various pride territories overlap in this area and the cats use the dry river bed as a thoroughfare and a means not only of locating their prey, who come to drink, but also of locating their rivals who must be warned away.

There are few African experiences more exciting than heading out on a walking safari early in the morning, having heard lions calling through the night, finding fresh tracks and following them up. With voices hushed and hearts beating your mind is suggesting there is a lion behind every bush. This is a true African safari experience. This is big game viewing on foot and at its best.
