Masses of game in wonderful habitats

Our second trip to Nsefu and it was just as good as we remembered.

Although the dining area had been washes away the dining table set with proper chairs under the trees was spectacular.

Game plentiful and the walking safaris memorable.

Beautiful Nsefu!

The same comment's as before for Nsefu, wildlife very much on your doorstep, saw Elephant's, various Antelope's, Baboon, heard Lion's very close by, all without even leaving the camp!

I have been to Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda, all wonderful place's, but what i loved most about Zambia is the remoteness, seeing more animal's then people, it's just packed with wildlife, and you can go day's before you saw another vehicle.... and have to reiterate how lovely the Zambian people are!

Return to Nsefu

This was our fourth visit to Nsefu, and it was as enjoyable and rewarding as ever. The camp has an idyllic location on a bend in the Luangwa river, with superb game viewing close by.
We were delighted by the warm welcome from Daudi, who manages Nsefu so well, and Braston, whose guiding skills are exceptional. He is an expert at "reading the bush".

The Nsefu cooks produced memorable meals on every occasion. We will be back!

a nice gentle way to return to civilization

My Dad and I, although disapointed to be leaving the Mobile camp had a great time at Nsefu.

The camp was very well run and beautifulA very romantic place also a witness by the young couple on their honeymoon .All throughout our trip not only the staff and locals were great, the other guests were nice interesting people also. Of course the landscape and the wildlife were the stars.

It was easier to tell people here in Canada what I didn't see as opposed to what I did see after seeing everything I could imagine

Nsefu review

This was our favourite fixed camp due to its position on the bend of the Luangwa river.

Again the food and guiding were excellent

Game drives were great

My game drives with Daudi were brilliant, he had such a sense of calm and trust, and I knew he would get us really good views of the animals.

Whilst I was staying at Nsefu, there was also a photography safari group and an individual there to takes photos, at times I felt that everything was run to suit them and that the rest of us had to fit their agenda, whilst I appreciate that we all eat meals together and are courteous and respectful of each other, I did not feel the same happy and fun vibe that I experienced at Tena Tena.

Daudi did an excellent job of getting us viewings of the leopard with its kill, despite the fact that the guys taking photographs (and the resident filming crew) seemed to dominate that type of viewing. Personally I felt a bit slighted by this as we had all paid to stay there and although Daudi did his upmost best, I did feel that they were given somewhat preference, or rather demanded it.

That aside I really enjoyed my drives with Daudi and he was indeed the highlight of my stay there

Nsefu review

I felt truly immersed in the environment in this camp. Eight elephants walked through the camp in the middle of the day and browsed among the baboons, puku and love birds. The view of the river below is spectacular.

The service, the meals, the guiding and the rooms were excellent. I'd love to go back there on day.

A good overall camp.

This camp was nice, as were all the camps I visited. It was, however, just a notch below the others in terms of rooms, activities, and ambience. This is certainly not a complaint but because the other camps were so beyond wonderful, this one was "only" very good. I have tried to temper my feelings because it was the my last camp and had a lot to live up to in terms of my expectations.

The rooms were nice, but a tad awkward with semi circular steps down the the outdoor bathroom and very limited space for luggage. There was shelving, but no luggage rack, which would have been appreciated. The camp layout was a bit odd with the bar and tea area at one end of camp and the dining area at the other. I felt that after sundowners, the next goal was a slow return to camp rather than really trying to find leopard, lion, or other wildlife.

That may be an unfair opinion; maybe the two nights I was there were just quiet. I was excited to see a porcupine at a close distance. One particular highlight was the Mongolian Barbeque they served for dinner one night. Another nice touch was the Pimms and lemonade that Susanah made with plenty of fruit garnishments. In all, I really did enjoy the Nsefu.

Peaceful and relaxing camp

This has the best location on a bend of the river where elephant crossed each day and we saw a leopard cross the lagoon near the camp on our last day.

A quieter and more relaxed atmosphere with fewer guests. Great game drives with Chillumba, who transferred with us from Tena Tena and we saw lions mating and a porcupine (our first after 9 safaris) as well as leopard, elephant, giraffe and the rest.

Our hostess at Nsefu and Tena Tena was Carolina who gave us excellent service and was excellent company.
