Nsefu Camp


About

Originally built in the 1950s by famed conservationist Norman Carr, Nsefu is one of the oldest safari camps in Zambia and the grandmaster of bushcamps in the Luangwa Valley. Though set up as a photographic and walking safari base, Nsefu Camp has been taken over and redesigned by Robin Pope Safaris. Today, Nsefu is a historic yet intimate camp that’s highly regarded for its guiding. The camp is found in the remote Nsefu sector on the north side of South Luangwa National Park, on the banks of the Luangwa River. Due to its longstanding history, when Nsefu was rebuilt and refurbished the camp’s original rondavels were kept in their original locations. These six brick-and-stone thatched rondavels feature en-suite bathrooms, shaded verandas, and a minimal design. Each rondavel has a view of the river both from the large bedroom windows and from the wooden verandas, where guests can watch game grazing during the day. The communal area’s colonial-style bar and sitting area provide plenty of comforts and are spectacularly set by the Luangwa River, for when the sun rises upstream and sets downstream. The focus at Nsefu Camp is activities for the keen walker or photographic safarist. The walks are led by knowledgeable guides and escorted by armed game rangers, while the game drives take guests deep into South Luangwa’s great game-viewing areas on board specially adapted open safari vehicles. With 100 species of mammal, including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, and hippo, and 400 species of bird, there’s plenty of wildlife to point a camera at or inspire you to reach for your binoculars.
