  • One of the more historical safari camps in Zambia, Nsolo Camp is the quintessential 'barefoot luxury' experience. Nestled along the banks of the seasonal Luwi River, a permanent river lagoon attracts a daily parade of wildlife that guests can watch from their private decks.

    With a design inspired by its intimate riverside setting, Nsolo welcomes guests into its comfortable suites, which sit on raised wooden platforms and embody a cosy ambiance. The suites celebrate the beauty of the South Luangwa, each one offering views over the surrounding bush.

    The Luwi River is renowned for its lion and wild dog 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's no end to the action around Nsolo!

    There are few African experiences more exciting than heading out on a safari early in the morning, having heard lions calling all 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 at its best.
