The perennial Luangwa River is the lifeblood of South Luangwa National Park, ensuring a permanent supply of water to support high concentrations of wildlife. With superb views of the river, Nsefu is a blissful camp, open in the dry season (mid May to early November), with a nostalgic ambience.

The atmosphere is intimate, the camp staff friendly and professional, and the service highly personalized. Only 12 guests are accommodated in six beautifully restored rondavels dating from the 1950s. All are whitewashed with thatched roofs, spacious open-air bathrooms and private wooden verandas. Every bed in camp has its own private view of the Luangwa River. Crisp cotton sheets, thick cotton towels, linen bathrobes and indulgent toiletries add a luxurious touch. Lighting is supplied by generator and solar lamps.

The thatched bar and communal lounge area are tucked in beside a huge extinct termite mound overlooking a waterhole that attracts all manner of game - guests may even glimpse a leopard at night.
In keeping with the authentic safari ambience, the camp has a working gramophone player and uses heavy hotel-silver cutlery, with dinners served by candlelight. One of the highlights of the Nsefu Sector is the abundance of dried-out oxbow lakes that have been replaced by lush grasslands and attract game in large numbers.

This sector of the park is famous for its concentrations of plains game (which in turn attract predators), especially huge herds of buffalo. Walking safaris, game drives, night drives, Kawaza Village visit and boating (mid January to end March) are all on offer.

Enjoy an intimate, authentic bush experience at Nsefu Safari Camp in the heart of the pristine and remote northern wilderness of Zambia's South Luangwa National Park.
