African wild dog

A lovely camp professionally run by a great bunch guys. Highlight for me was our sightings of wild dog which I had hoped to see. Lots of game and birds. Lions were particularly active along the river and excellent guiding found several leopards. A wonderful sighting of a buffalo herd about 800 strong. Much quieter from a visitor perspective so you get a greater sense of the vastness of the bush and plains

The ultimate experience

If our safari only had been these 3 days in Nsefu camp then I would have been as happy as possible. This camp is the ultimate experience. Location is excellent and the wildlife around it is so abundant that it is hard to count. The leopard sighting of the female leopard Ulimbe was spectacular. We had the wild dogs almost in the camp every day. The elephants came into the camp to scoop up leaves during the siesta time. The birds and especially the carmine bee eaters are abundant. The guide, Breston as also exceptional. The food fabulous. The surprise Mongolian BBQ at night was a treat. Sundowners always perfect.
We had walked with Chilumbe from Tena Tena to Nsefu. It was interesting to learn about the area, but you do not see any big wildlife when walking. It was a good experience. I shed tears when leaving Nsefu. The camp manager and host, Marco had also been exceptionally kind. His family was visiting him at the same time we were there. If I were to go back to Zambia, I think I would only go to Tena Tena and Nsefu. The central area is fine too, but a bit more cars are around so you do not get that remote feeling as you to in Nsefu.

A perfect finale

Coming back to Nsefu was also like coming home.

The banana boat ride to the landing, being in the same room as my last stay, watching the elephant and giraffe in stately procession through the river: familiar but exciting as ever.

Chilumba went out of his way to find us the mother leopard and her cub, and the local lions, as well as introducing me to birds I hadn't seen before.

Sad to leave as always.

nsefu

Beautiful place, and teeming with wildlife, but hard to fell like a tourist, being taken to see a leopard along with other tourists with their long lenses, and felt that our guide stayed too long,

We felt uneasy, a bit voyeuristic, and asked to leave.

Great safari at Nsefu

We had a brilliant few days at Nsefu.

The buildings are extremely comfortable and very interesting .The food was excellent and the guiding was superb.

Our guide ,Pious, located a pack of Hunting Dogs and we watched them hunt Warthogs and a hare . It was fascinating and exhilarating .

The walking safari gave us a different perspective again and was an experience not to be missed.

As with Nkwali the staff could not do enough for us.

Nsefu review

we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Nsefu

The accommodation is a bit close and dated but as we left we had a long conversation with Rob from RPS who advised us that the huts would be rebuilt as they are slipping into the river

And he was at Tena Tena to show 3 local official around to hopefully start the process

Historic camp with fantastic river view

Nsefu was our final camp after spending our first days at the Avani in Livingstone and then the Nkwali camp. When Julius drove us into camp, the first thing we saw was a herd of elephant crossing the river below the camp. The location on the banks of the river gives dramatic views of elephants, hippos, crocodiles and more.

The chalets themselves are rounded thatched huts with a bathroom the steps down in the back. As one of the first camps in the park, the huts are a little close together but provide ample privacy and a nice breeze. Each has a front porch that faces the wide expanse of the river. Like Nkwali, the staff was warm and attended to our needs. The camp has a hide overlooking a pond so you see game up close very nearby. This was also the camp that we took two walks through the area with an armed scout.

Breakfast and dinner we served overlooking the river and were excellent. The highlight dinner was the one we had on the top of an extinct termite mound for our 20th wedding anniversary. Again, the staff was amazing. The game drives were just as incredible especially since Nsefu is deeper in the park with fewer vehicles and wilder game. Watching a pack of wild dogs tear apart an impala, then chase off a leopard and finally battle a pack of hyenas for the carcass is an experience we will always remember.

Nsefu was a nice balance to Nkwali because of how deep in the park it is and the dramatic views of wildlife every single day. It's one of the most unique places we have ever visited and we will always remember it.
