The welcome provide by Colo and her team was wonderful
The guiding was brilliant by Simon and Filomen
The proximity of the lions to the camp and their nighttime roaring only added to our exciting experience
Nsolo Bushcamp review
After walking from Luwi we were greeted at arrival in NSOLO by Kolo with exuberant enthousiasm.
Julias was our guide as well in Luwi as in Nsolo and we enjoyed very much his company: very attentive , with excellent knowledge of the bush.
Do the sleep out!!!
We spent 2 nights at Nsolo. Actually, one of them was the sleep out in a dry river bed, which I highly recommend. Falling asleep while looking at the stars & the galaxy & hearing lions, leopards & hyenas in the vicinity was an unparalleled experience. The braai we had during the sleep out was amazing.
On our walking safaris, on one day, we came over a hill & there was a giant herd of buffalo. When we returned to camp & came up another hill, there was a herd of elephants we had to slowly go around. Wow!!!
Nsolo's manager, Kolo, is such a fun person & I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations. Phil is a superb guide & Bottle was an excellent ranger.
Never solo at Nsolo.
Wonderful location inside the national park located along the dry river bed.
Spacious chalet, comfortable stay, often joined by elephants for afternoon tea. The food was excellent remembering that this is a 'bush camp' avec comfort.
Wild dogs regular at this location always a bonus.
Mild mannered excellent guide in Philemon, diligent Sarah as host and a friendly team throughout.
Thank you to everyone, a wonderful experience shared with some other wonderful guests.
Nsolo, the roaring Lion Camp..
Wonderfull setting on the Riverbank of the Luwi River, which will drying out during the hot summer months. But there's a waterhole in front of the Camp's main area.
We've spotted large herds of Elephants and other animals out from there. The Elephants also crossed the Camp's Dining Location during our Lunch, what an extraordinary experience. Also would I like to thank Sarah the Host of Nsolo, for the great time we had in her Camp. Great Guiding an Walking with "Pince" too.
To hear a roaring Lion during the nighttime was also a great special there...nice!

Nsolo Bushcamp review
Innocent our guide made our stay here amazing. He and Lewis, the scout, had us stalking a lion on foot and even better was Innocent's excitement when we saw a pack of 5 wild dogs which are so endangered (we saw them several times over our stay there); another highlight was when he drove us to Mchenja and we had a wonderful sighting en route of a leopard in a sausage tree - probably our best leopard spot! These events were among many others such as the unexpected day time sight of honey badgers. The food was brilliant again and my non-meat diet was excellently catered for as at Kapani. There were just 4 of us in the jeep each time here which was great.
We did feel that the room and decking was in a slight 'end of season' state but it wasn't a problem.
Two nights here was ideal for us.
Nsolo Bushcamp review
Again an excellent camp site with plenty to see and learn about on our walks in the area and during the drives.
We walked here from Luwi, and on the way saw 3 lionesses in a dry river bed which we were crossing, with 2 buffalo on the opposite bank, all close by, amongst numerous other species. The humble impala soon becomes a familiar sight, but what a beautiful creature, don't overlook them !.
Cookson's wildebeest were spotted and we managed to get close enough for decent photographs. They are only found in the Luangwa Valley. A lovely encounter with a very tired but well fed lioness, and then sundowners with hyenas and a tawny eagle for company.
On our second day here we found a large herd of buffalo to which we walked in close, nearly stepping on a hippo setting off somewhere In broad daylight. There were too many encounters to relate them all.
Wonderful stay at Nsolo Bush Camp
What can we say here - from the moment we were greeted by Tatum (our hostess) to the moment she waved us goodbye we had the most wonderful experiences. Her friendliness and exuberance made this camp special to us and we would be pleased if that was fed back to the company. Again we were lucky as were the only guests for our two nights stay and the private meal Tatum arranged on our deck was magical. (I challenge any guests to guess her nationality!)
But it wasn't only the hosting that was excellent but also we were very lucky to have Innocent as our guide. What a lovely man and his love of the Zambian wild life was self evident - he was the perfect guide for us. We had so many great experiences on foot and in the vehicle they are too much to list. But approaching lions and seeing how close we could get on foot is something we will never forget. Also watching elephants clear lions away from a waterhole so they could drink was amazing to watch ( especially with sundowner in hand!). Elephants visiting us for lunch was such fun.
We had Room 2 - which I suspect was the best as the balcony was wonderful with a lovely tree built into it giving great shade (comfortable chairs inside and out here).
