A Rain Storm and Conversation at Dinner
We only had one night in the beautiful new chalets at Nsolo and a substantial storm meant we missed our evening drive. However, that was more than compensated for by seeing the storm, by the way our chalet was cleaned up so promptly and, since we were the only guests, we had an exclusive dinner with Shaddy, the guide and camp manager, and greatly enjoyed the diverse and thought-provoking conversation.
We walked part of the way to Kakuli in the morning and then, during the final part of the journey, were excited to see a very large herd of buffalo on the move.
Welcome at Nsolo
Shaddy and Natasha were great hosts/guides and made us really welcome. We felt very comfortable with them .
The covered eating area together with the little seating area and library is a bonus.

Expert Africa comments
This traveller commented on his whole trip, on the 'previous page:
"It was a splendid tour you had arranged for us in South Luangwa.
In all five lodges Kapani, Kakuli, Nsolo, Mchenja and Luwi. Anne Marie, Lora, Natasha, Warren, the guides Abraham, Lawrence, Shaddy, Sam, Jimmy and John plus the rest of the teams gave us a wonderful time. They were all incredibly hospitable and immediately made us feel wellcome.
The game experiences were unforgettable.The guides who were all excellent did their best to show the nature and the game in varied actions. Especially John, who was called out to take us from Nsolo to Mcenja, half way walk, two days at Mchenja and the walk from Nsolo to Luwi. He was a brilliant guide, who seemed to be fond of walking like we are, while some of the guides had a preference for driving."
The ultimate bush experience
This was the real bush experience. Lions roared all night round our hut, and buffalo ran riot. There was quite a bit of damage to the dining area in the morning, and when we tracked the lions, we found several items, including a purloined pillow, a mile away.
The catering manager was excellent - used to extreme situations, great fun to talk to, very even-tempered.
This was our first introduction to a walking safari. We particularly enjoyed the walk from Nsolo to Mchenja.
This was very worthwile for a day or two, but on balance we prefer to be closer to water, as there is definitely more to see..
The perfect lodge for us
Great walk from Mchenga to Nsolo. Met by Natasha who was the perfect hostess. Couldn't rate her highly enough.
This was a new camp in an lovely position. Perfect chalet. Ratio of walking to driving was good. This is what we felt we had come to Zambia for. Tracked lion on foot.
Shaddy, manager and guide obviously very experienced. Bartwell, the 'man with the gun' we will remember for his kindness, interesting conversation and expertise.
Highlights were elephant under our chalet at night, buffalo by water hole whilst dining on the river bed and the bush walks.
