Nsolo Bush Camp is situated on a bend in the Luwi River that runs through the heart of Zambia's south Luangwa National Park, a three hours' walk from Luwi Bushcamp. We are open from 20 May - 31 October.

Accommodation in this luxury safari camp consists of four individually designed Chalets, each on raised wooden decks with high thatched roofs and private verandahs. The rooms are very spacious with stylish furnishings. As with most of our bush camps, the bathrooms have no roofs and are set under the shade of the trees above.

At Nsolo, you don't usually have to search hard for your African safari experience. The wildlife frequents a waterhole in the dry riverbed in front of the camp and very often your most exciting game viewing is from the comfort of your own deck or from the central chitenje that houses the bar and small camp library. There is only a limited network of roads in this are and as a result, most of the game viewing activities are centred on walking safaris, although short night drives are usually offered as well.

The Luwi River system is renowned for its lion population. Various pride territories overlap in this area and the cats use the dry riverbed as a thoroughfare and a means not only of locating their prey who come to drink, but also of locating their rivals who must be warned away. There are few African experiences more exciting than heading out on a walking safari early in the morning, hearing lions calling through the night, finding fresh tracks and following them. With voices hushed and hearts beating, your mind is suggesting there is a lion behind every bush.

Nsefu Camp is situated on a sweeping bend of the Luangwa River, just 12 km north of Tena Tena. Nsefu was the first game camp in Zambia and dates back to the early fifties. The Nsefu Sector was recognised then as a phenomenal area and it still is. The camp can accommodate up to 12 guests in traditional rondavels with en-suite semi-open air bathrooms, while the view of the river is superb and includes a terraced area where game grazes during the day.

The bar, tucked in beside a huge dormant termite mound, overlooks a waterhole that is very productive for game, especially leopard at night. The original rondavels have been extended, with a spacious bathroom added, and each room has a clear view of the river through large windows and from the new wooden verandah.

Wonderfully remote and peaceful, the site is a relaxed 3-hour bushwalk from Kaingo. Set on the banks of the Mwamba River, a tributary of the Luangwa, the camp enjoys shady views of perennial water-holes. The chalets are uniquely designed with two large skylights (protected by mosquito gauze) allowing you to experience sleeping under the stars. These three reed and thatch en-suite bungalows also have solar lighting, flush toilets and hot showers. The accommodation reflects a thoughtful balance between back-to-nature simplicity and essential comforts. Meals are of the same high standard as Kaingo, and the bush-style dining/bar area or 'chitenge' is set under the deep shade of huge ebony trees. A spectacular sunset viewing-point on top of a large termite mound and a glowing campfire under the stars completes the camp's friendly and personal atmosphere. The game around Mwamba is excellent; large herds of buffalo, eland and Cookson's wildebeeste are followed by the 'Mwamba pride', which consists of six beautiful lionesses and two classicly dark maned males. Good leopard sightings are also common due to the large numbers of impala and puku in the area. Elephants use the Mwamba's waterholes regularly and there is a large bull which frequents the camp. Another appeal of Mwamba is the surrounding terrain. The land varies tremendously from wide open plains such as Lion Plain and Eland Plain, interspersed by shady mopane/crocodile bark woodland with short grass, and bordered by Combretum thickets along the Mwamba river. The area is excellent for walking safaris and game drives. We also offer over-night 'camp-outs' (sleeping open under a net, close to the camp-fire) on request. These trips allow visitors to get a sense of the absolute wildness of the National Park as there are no other camps or trails for miles around. One of the most unusual sights is the Baobab 'forest' near Mwamba Sands. As Mwamba is a specialised camp and is an extension to Kaingo, the small staff have been hand-picked and will work tirelessly to ensure guests are comfortable and relaxed.

Kapani Lodge is an exclusive camp situated on the banks of one of the Luangwa River's many ox-bow lagoons. It is located close to the main Mfuwe area of the South Luangwa National Park, which is one of the finest national parks in Zambia.

Each of the eight standard suites has its own lounge with a bar fridge and the beds have overhead fans inside their walk-in mosquito nets. Our Lagoon House is even more spacious with private views and it is ideal for honeymooners or a family group looking for a little more space and seclusion.

The camp offers most modern facilities and a thatched building in the centre of this luxury safari lodge houses the lounge and library. It is pleasantly cool in the hot weather and cosy in the cooler months. According to the season, dining is al fresco with dinner taken either on the terrace, the spacious deck, or by the swimming pool. Private dinners can also be arranged for guests seeking a little more seclusion. The bar and dining area is set on a deck overlooking the Kapani Lagoon and adjacent grazing lawns.

This is an ideal place to start your Zambian safari experience and enjoy great game drives, night drives and visits to the villages and our community projects. Above all else, the game viewing in the area is as good as you will find anywhere in Zambia.

The common areas are also breezy and capacious. The bar is creatively built around an enormous ebony tree and the separate dining area overlooks a small lagoon which often attracts elephants and bushbuck to drink.

Activities at Nkwali Camp are very much focused on the Mfuwe Sector's abundance of wildlife, with game drives in open safari vehicles being the mainstay. Guests are taken out in the specially adapted four-wheel-drive vehicles by qualified and knowledgeable professional guides. Guided night drives are also conducted, with the opportunity to see various nocturnal species that take over once the sun has set.

Luwi Bush Camp is a seasonal bush camp that is open from 20 May to 31 October. It is nestled under huge mahogany trees on the banks of a permanent lagoon. It is situated deep in the heart of the national park and is one of the only Luangwa safari camps to be positioned well away from the permanent waters and rich vegetation of the main river.

Due to its remote location there are not many roads in the area so activities are centred on walking safaris. This fact makes Luwi Bush Camp one of the most enthralling camps in Zambia. The wildlife in the area is prolific and to track it each day on foot is a memory that will last a lifetime. Luwi was one of the South Luangwa National Park's first remote safari camps. Norman Carr sited the camp back in the 1980's and today this camp offers guests a true walking safari and a taste of the traditional African bush experience.

Accommodation is in four huts that are made of grass and thatch with polished mud floors. Each room is designed differently utilizing trees and natural vegetation wherever possible. The design of these rooms lends the camp a rustic appeal and provides a truly African bush experience. A small thatch provides shade over the bar area and daytime meals are served in the shade of the trees whilst dinner is taken under the stars accompanied by the many sounds of the Zambian night.

There is a large lagoon adjacent to the camp that teams with hippo and crocodile. This permanent water source attracts wildlife from far and wide. With the emphasis on the use of natural materials in its construction, this camp is certainly one of the most traditional of all of the Luangwa safari camps. Typically your day will start early, around the camp fire when you will discuss the noises and animals heard through the night. Your morning walking safari is likely to take three to four hours returning you to camp in time for a hearty brunch.

Located 40 km upstream from the main Mfuwe Gate and on the banks of an oxbow lagoon which retains a small amount of water all year, the lodge looks out onto open grassland. By day the plain is frequented by grazing mammals and by night it becomes a hunting ground for lions.

In the absence of fences, game move freely through the lodge grounds. Elephant, hippo, bushbuck and other antelope are regularly seen within the confines of the camp and there are healthy populations of lion, leopard, buffalo and giraffe in the immediate area.
