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 guiding was brilliant by Simon and Filomen

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.
