Nsolo Bush Camp
South Luangwa National Park
Nsolo Bush Camp takes her name from the endemic Honey Guide that is often seen around the camp. Looking out over the often dry Luwi River, which is a tributary of the Luangwa River, the camp has remained with it’s humble origin and is very popular for safari enthusiasts that love walking safaris.
The camps main guest area has been built on a raised wooden deck that is completely open and boasts fantastic views over the river bed. Tree trunks poke out of the deck at random places providing welcome shade during the heat of the day and a really sublime place to bird watch and spot game. Comfortable couches with a small reference library and a large dinner table for communal evening meals is also found here.
Beyond the deck the ground slopes towards the river bed revealing a wide sand bank that is absolutely incredible for sun-downers or a private dinner. There are usually two small waterholes in the river bed that attract diverse wildlife which can be observed from the deck. A campfire area has excellent sunset views with your pre-dinner drink.
Both day and night game drives are possible but the focus remains with walking safaris.
Nsolo has just 5 thatched chalets, raised on wooden decks, each has its own style and have been incorporated into their surrounding vegetation. Making use of locally sourced materials much of the furniture is either reed or Elephant grass that has been cleverly woven into a useful item.
While each chalet may seem quite simply furnished they are very comfortable and the en-suite bathroom is open to the skies. Have a shower under the stars, you will love the experience.
Double wooden doors at the front of the chalet open onto a private deck that faces onto the river bed.
