Located on the Luwi River, Nsolo Bush Camp is a romantic, thatched camp situated just three hours' safari walk from Luwi Camp. Extremely private and secluded, there are only four elegantly appointed huts on raised platforms, each with a fabulous game view of the river.
Nsolo Bush Camp consists of four individually designed chalets, each of which stand perched on raised wooden decks with high thatched roofs and private verandas overlooking the surrounding Luwi River ecosystem. Game frequents a waterhole in the riverbed in front of Nsolo Bush Camp, which often results in exciting viewing from the comfort of one’s own deck and the sounds of the local lions lulling guests to sleep. Solar powered and shaded by the property’s evergreen trees, the chalets of Nsolo Bush Camp pride themselves on their comfort and bush luxury atmosphere.
The central “chitenje” lounge of Nsolo Bush Camp is the social heart of the property. Outfitted with a bush bar, small camp library, and an intimate dining area, it serves as a peaceful refuge for guests looking for reprieve after a day out in the bush. Nsolo Bush Camp is one of South Luangwa National Park’s more historic camps. It was founded by Norman Carr in 1987 and has been managed and hosted for the past 15 years by Shaddy Nkhoma, one of the country’s best guides whose walking safaris are nothing short of legendary. Today, Shaddy’s distinguished protégée Philemon Banda has taken over the leadership reins to great celebration.
As with Nsolo Bush Camp’s sister properties, walking safaris are the most memorable takeaways from the region. The Luwi river system, with its limited network of roads, is best explored and experienced by foot. This is predator territory, with various lion prides, wild dog dens, and wandering leopards frequently overlapping their routes along the dry riverbeds. For an especially unique activity, embark on a walking safari en route to a traditional Zambian village, where one is able to meet with the local people and learn about their daily customs. Guests are sure to be greeted and welcomed warmly in the Zambian tradition.Request Information
