What can we say? It was without doubt the best holiday either of us have ever had, and we have been on some good ones in the past. We would like to thank Paul for all his hard work, great patience and his very good advice.

Set on a sweeping bend of the Luangwa River, Nsefu enjoys exquisite views of ebony groves and lagoon systems, where the wildlife viewing is exceptional. The birdlife is prolific, with one of Zambia’s largest breeding colonies of yellow-billed storks (best viewed in May and June). The nearby saltpans also provide a breeding ground for crowned cranes.
The remote setting means that guests can take private walking safaris, game drives and night drives – or simply relax and unwind in the camp, soaking up the beauty and tranquility of the park, and spotting wildlife at the water hole.
The look and feel of Nsefu safari camp is one of cool understated elegance. The six rondavels – traditional circular African houses – are the original 1950s buildings lovingly restored with antique fittings and comfortable modern furnishings. Each has a deck with sensational views along the length of the Luangwa River.
Inside, a set of double doors opens onto an elegant bedroom where a large central bed is raised off the floor – so that at night you can gaze out at the moonlight reflecting on the river, without even lifting your head. Steps lead down to a spacious bathroom where, from the shower, you can gaze out into the bush.You do not need to travel far to see wildlife at Nsefu. Stroll to the bar area, which overlooks both the river and a large lagoon, and you can watch the animals come and go, drinking at the water hole. Many a lazy afternoon can be spent lounging in the bar, nursing a cool drink, flicking through the collection of books and magazines, and watching the game.
Activities - walking safaris, drives, night drives, Kawaza Village visit, boating in the Emerald Season.
