Wonderful dinner on the sandy river bed!

The walking transfer between Luwi and Nsolo was exciting: with our guide Innocent, we tracked lions' paws till when we saw a lioness on the other side of the river: we crossed the river to get closer, but she was waiting for us and, at around 20-30 meters, she sent us very clear signals to stay away! We discovered she had two cubs, so she was just protecting them. One of the experiences you can only have with a walking safari with guides and scouts well prepared for their job.

In my opinion, Nsolo has probably the best chalets of all the camps: very spacious room and the veranda under a tree.

We had nice morning walks and night drives with Andrew (the same guide we had in Kapani) and also we found a pride of lions just around sunset of the second day in Nsolo. We were so excited that we almost missed a lioness with her two cubs: fortunately Kathrin, a member of our group in Nsolo, spotted her, so we were be able to enjoy also this family scene.

But probably the highlight of our stay in Nsolo was the dinner of the second night, that Priya organized on a sand bank in the river bed: wonderful setting and delicious food!

Nsolo Bushcamp review

Shaddie was great.

Our game viewing with him was unforgettable.

Pria was a lovely hostess. This is definitely lion territory.

Nsolo Bushcamp review

Shadi and Batwell made a great team, steering us past marauding buffalo - all of which added to our excitement of the stay there.

Pria was an excellent hostess and all the troops were super.

Looking up.

We still had the same problems at Nsolo as the message had not got through for some reason. We therefore still remained in a group of six whilst others went off in pairs. A lot of frustration!

On the plus side it is a beautiful camp. Our host Pria was excellent and our (sometime) guide Shadi was very competent and knowledgeable. The walks out of here were very good (group of six not withstanding) with lots of interest and good duration (3-4 1/2 hours)

Beautiful walks at Nsolo

Stunning location with a multitude of animals wandering through camp at all hours of the day and night. Feeling so close to nature was wonderful and much more than we had expected. Shaddy and Batwell were tremendous fun to be guided by and clearly work brilliantly as a team. They totally made the holiday for us and we were especially lucky to have them all to ourselves for our first morning walk.

The chalets were lovely and we were so impressed to hear how the whole place has to be rebuilt every year. It made us appreciate how lucky we were to be able to visit such a place at all. The food was excellent, as was the laundry facility. The tsetse flies were an unpleasant surprise, but they were the only point of complaint at all.

Nsolo was our favourite place of the holiday, mostly because of the great staff there, but also because we saw wild dogs, which we hadn't dared to hope for and was very special.

Tranquility at beautiful Nsolo

It is very difficult to put into words our stay at Nsolo. Vastly different to Kapani. The peace, tranquility and remoteness was exceptional as was the quilaity of care, food, guides, hostess and accommodation. Nothing was too much trouble, very very relaxing. Everything from the early morning walk to the evening drive was brilliant. Sundowners were exceptional, beautiful locations every time. Lots of sightings, animals and birds, quickly ticking off items on our check list.

Pria (sorry if I have spelt that wrong) was a first class hostess, friendly, talkative felt very relaxed in her company.

Food, service and all the staff, front of house and back of house were exceptional.

Nsolo Bushcamp review

Great crowd meant that, combined with Pam (nee Carr's) presence as host, we had greatly enjoyable meal times.

Rained one evening so sadly animals moved further afield.

Our first experience of bush walks showed us how much more there was to appreciate than just the animlas & birds.

Excellent guide (Shaddy) and scout (Bardwill)
