wonderful experience at Nsefu

Nsefu has the most spectacular views of all the lodges we stayed at, from the rooms, bar and dining area.

Staff are so friendly and informative. Our guide was incredible and we shared some fantastic viewings of all the wildlife and the magnificent scenery.

Couldn't have had a better stay and would love to return one day.

Jewel in the Crown

Superb location on the bend with the daily crossing both ways of Elephant, game drives cover a large area allowing viewing of lots of different species of wildlife we went out to the salt pans and the hot spring which was fantastic at around 50-60 degrees it makes you wonder what must be going on way down in the earth.
The room s have air conditioning if you want but I prefer just leaving all the windows open so the breeze flows through.
Came across a unit making a Documentary on the life of a Leopard called "Olimba" (the strong one) which has been going on for some two years it should be well worth seeing when it gets released hopefully on BBC though the coupe are Dutch I believe their previous work was "Vanishing Kings" the Lions of Namibia.
Following Olimba and her calling her cub and seeing the joy of them meeting up was a great experience.
And Dinner in the bush one evening was a great surprise much enjoyed by all.

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
