Sebastian served us well, the highlight was the visit to the salt pan and finding the serval and solitary Cookson's Wildebeest (we still feel sorry for his loneliness!).
Sad to leave the Luangwa valley with all its glories." See all these reviews: 14n in Zambia
Highlights include a leopard feasting on an impala, watching a never ending buffalo herd coming down to the river to drink and the daily lunchtime appearance of an extended elephant family and their 'interactions' with the resident hippo in the camp waterhole ,
The scenery of the Nsefu sector was quite different from other parts of the Luangwa NP - with sidearms of the river, forests etc.
The camp staff were excellent and so was the food; we enjoyed particularly the evening dinners al fresco with candle light." See all these reviews: 12n in Zambia
"Great start and our favourite camp"
Within half an hour of arriving, we were surrounded by a herd of elephant who walked into camp and kept us trapped (contentedly!) in our huts and the bar - an amazing introduction to our first safari!" See all these reviews: 10n in Zambia
Guides again outstanding, especially if you like being chased by a rather irate female Elephant!! this caused great humour with fellow visitors. The school visit was quite an experience, and we managed to deliver our gifts to the head teacher." See all these reviews: 10n in Zambia
Bats in the eaves of the rondavel made for a noisy night at times but reminding you are in the bush after all!" See all these reviews: 12n in Zambia
"Nsefu Camp has a village-like quality"
Our capable guide, Sebastian, found many animals for us to view, including a large group of 12 giraffes near the camp. He also provided us with a lot of information about the birds of the area, particularly on a walking safari that he conducted. We found the check lists provided by the camp for birds, animals, and trees to be very helpful.
One of the highlights of our stay at Nsefu was a visit to the Hot Springs area, which included a picnic lunch set up beside a beautiful lagoon by our driver Sebastian." See all these reviews: 7n in Zambia
