Nsolo Bush Camp is located on a sweeping bend of the Luwi sand river in the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia. The opportunities of seeing Lion prides and buffalo herds are a common occurrence on the banks of the river. There is also small waterhole in front of camp where the animals come to drink and the lion are ready for an ambush. It can be an exciting camp to visit!
4 thatched chalets are all built up on wooden decks, built from reed and with high pitched, thatched roofs and large, open-air bathrooms. In front of each room is a separate viewing deck with comfortable chairs, and shaded by mahogany or sausage trees. The rooms are large and spacious, either with a king size bed or twin beds, and the bathrooms are creatively designed – each shower has a view of the riverbed.
The bar, dining area and small seating areas is in the main area at Nsolo dining area and a small seating area. In front of camp there is a fire pit and of course the sand river, where occasionally evening meals are set up – a dining table surrounded by lanterns and open to the skies.
The activities at Nsolo focus mainly on walking safaris, there is an option to drive occasionally, but the roads in this area are few, and the area lends itself perfectly to walking and exploration.
Nsolo combines perfectly with its sister camps – Luwi, the deepest into the park, and also on the Luwi sand river, Kakuli, which is on the confluence of the Luwi and the main Luangwa River, and Mchenja, which is on a sweeping bend of the Luangwa, sheltered in a towering grove of ebony trees.
Children under the age of 12 years are not accepted at Nsolo Camp, as this is the minimum age for walking. Children aged 12 to 16 are able to walk if they are accompanied by a parent or guardian. As the camp is in a wildlife-dense area, children are asked to be with an adult at all times.
