Safari camps

On the banks of the Luwi River is Nsolo Bush Camp by Norman Carr Safaris, an open sided, shady chitenje lounge with a bush bar and dining area offering a peaceful refuge where guests can study the camps collection of books or watch a variety of game visiting the permanent pools of water in the Luwi riverbed.

Nsolo is the local name for the honey guide and the camp was named after this extraordinary little bird. By amazing co-incidence it was later learnt that this area used to be home to a famous local hunter – also called Nsolo! Managed and hosted for 15 years by Shaddy Nkhoma, one of the best guides in Zambia, Shaddy is now concentrating on private guiding and his protégée Philemon Banda is taking over the leadership at Nsolo.

As with Luwi Bushcamp, this is one of the South Luangwa’s more remote, luxury safari camps with many wonderful walking areas in the vicinity. There is also the opportunity to participate in game drives for those wishing to combine walking and driving.

The Luwi river system, where Luwi, Nsolo and Kakuli Bush Camps are situated, is renowned for its lion population. Various pride territories overlap in this area and the cats use the dry river bed as a thoroughfare and a means not only of locating their prey, which come to drink, but also of locating their rivals who must be warned to stay away.

Wild dogs have denned between Luwi and Nsolo for the last 6 years and chances of seeing these elusive creatures are high. Leopard also abound in the area.

There are few African experiences more exciting than heading out on a walking safari early in the morning, having heard lions calling through the night, finding their fresh tracks and following them through the bush. With voices hushed and hearts beating your mind is suggesting there is a lion over every rise; this is big game viewing on foot at its best.
