Nsolo Bush Camp

South Luangwa National Park


Nsolo Bush Camp Location Map

Nsolo is one of the more historic camps in Zambia. The name is derived from the local name for the honey guide and the camp was named after this extraordinary little bird.

The camp is one of the South Luangwa's more remote, luxury safari camps, and there are many wonderful walking areas in the vicinity. 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 their fresh tracks and following them through the bush. With voices hushed and hearts beating, your mind is suggesting there is a lion over every rise - this is big game viewing on foot at its best.

There is also the opportunity to participate in game drives for those wishing to combine walking and driving. Night drives are also possible.

The camp is nestled along the banks of the seasonal Luwi River, and also overlooks a permanent river lagoon, which attracts a daily parade of wildlife. This area is especially renowned for its wild dog and lion population. Various lion prides use the dry riverbed as a thoroughfare and a means not only of locating their prey but also their rivals who must be warned to stay away. There is no end to the action around the camp.

Accommodation in this 'bush luxury' safari camp consists of 5 spacious chalets, each on raised wooden decks with grass and reed walls and large, open air en-suite bathrooms. Each chalet runs on solar power and is set under the shade of evergreen trees with private verandahs overlooking the surrounding bush and waterholes in the Luwi River.

On the banks of the Luwi River is an open sided, shady chitenje lounge with a bush bar and dining area offering a peaceful refuge where guests can study the camps collection of books or watch a variety of game visiting the permanent pools of water in the Luwi riverbed.
