Setting the standard

Is it my favourite because it was my first?

I managed to miss a flight, thereby arriving late and after dark, and spoiling all the arrangements but the staff took this in their stride. I was particularly touched that they'd realised I'd missed lunch and brought me a snack to eat on the journey from the airport. As I was the only guest in camp that night, the entire camp lined up to greet me on arrival which was an hilarious warm welcome. Hello Gloria, John, Albert, Million, Esther and everyone!

Location, location, location - Nsolo on the banks of the dry Luwi is just beautiful. Utter peace: I did have one morning in camp , enjoying the quiet (by choice) when my fellow guests were all out on drives/walks; even the camp staff were barely a murmur. At night there were the darkest of dark skies with fantastic stars and Mars glowing red. One evening we arrived back from the afternoon game drive to find the dinner table 'missing' - it had been moved onto the river bank so we could eat under the stars by lamplight. So very glamorous in the full sense of the word.

We saw six lion cubs idly playing on my first game drive, which set the tone for the rest of my safari week.

Nsolo Bushcamp review

This was my favorite place on the trip, despite only hanging out there for only 6 hours. It had a great vibe/energy and openness. I was completely immersed in the atmosphere and was completely relaxed. I connected with this place and the people here, particularly Gloria the manager. Nsolo really fit the safari stereotype. Its a place i could stay at for months while reading books, writing stories, eating good food and observing nature make its magic. The reason i didn't stay the night is because at that point we were tired of moving constantly, getting settled and going through the minor packing-unpacking situation. So we went directly to our final stop at Chinzombo and added a night there. Besides Nsolo being a favorite for me. We had the best meal of our trip there, prepared at lunch. Love it.

Nsolu Bushcamp excellent

Again, a wonderful welcome from Charity and all the staff. We particularly liked the way the staff at the Norman Carr camps introduced themselves by name when we arrived which made us feel like one of the family rather than have a "them and us" relationship. A brilliant night game drive with Prince, which was the only activity we did at that camp as we were there for only one night. We would usually have liked an afternoon walk but on this particular day were quite happy to forego it as we'd had the sleepout the previoius night and a couple of longish days.

Lovely Camp

This is a return visit (I was here in 2012). It remains a lovely camp, but as with Luwi I felt slightly uncomfortable here.

The other guests were lovely, but as a solo traveler, the hosting was lacklustre. Prince was a great guide, and we had some wonderful sightings. With regret, I feel I must mention the behaviour of the ZAWA scout and guide on the walk from Luwi to Nsolo. The scout was throwing things (clumps of earth I think) at a herd of buffalo to get them to move along.

Warmest welcome at Nsolo Bushcamp

Warmest welcome ever from Colo and her team, constantly willing to surprise & please you. They all make you feel "at home".

Overall a very enjoyable, comfortable and relaxed bushcamp, It feels secluded, which I liked.

Interesting walks with very knowledgeable guides (Friday and Dr. Phil).

Would love to return and arrange a "sleep out" the next time!

The welcome provide by Colo and her team was wonderful

The guiding was brilliant by Simon and Filomen

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.
