Nsolo Bush Camp, Zambia

Nsolo is one of the more historic camps in Zambia, it was sited by Norman Carr in the 80s and has since moved down the river bed and turned into a seriously good bush camp. The guiding is exceptional and character in camp tangible; one of our absolute favourites in the Luangwa. A truly stunning little camp.

Nsolo looks over the dry Luwi River, downstream from Luwi bush camp parterning with it to make a wonderful walking trail between the two. Sited by Norman Carr in 1987. Nsolo Bush Camp is situated on a bend in the Luwi sand river that runs through the heart of the South Luangwa National Park.

Accommodation 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. As with most bush camps the bathrooms have no roofs and are set under the shade of the trees above, offering a real sense of adventure.

The guiding from this camp is amongst the best, with local knowledge of the surrounding area being exceptional. The wildlife frequents a waterhole in the dry river-bed nearby and guests are often lucky to see wild dogs in this area at certain times of the year.

As with Norman Carr’s other walking camp, Luwi, Nsolo is one of the South Luangwa's more remote, luxury walking safari camps. There is only a limited network of roads in this area and as a result most of the game viewing activities are centered on walking safaris although night drives are usually offered as well.

Nsolo Camp - Reviews

The Norman Carr camps were absolutely fantastic, the guiding especially. Innocent Tembo is reason enough to visit Nsolo on his own. We did a sleep out under mossie nets one night and this must rate as our best ever safari experience.
