Located on a bend in the Luangwa River, in the private Nsefu sector of the South Luangwa National Park, Robin Pope Safaris' Nsefu Camp tells a story of a safari era long past. The camp was originally built in 1951 and aside from a few upgrades to modernise the camps facilities it has remained very much unchanged, still inhabiting the same style and mannerisms of its original design, affording guests a traditionally authentic African experience.
The camp is small and intimate with only 6 rooms accommodating a maximum of 12 guests. Rooms come in the form of traditional rondavels, made of thatch and brick and possess incredible views from each accommodation's veranda or from your bed. Bathrooms are en suite and include a walk-in shower and flush toilet. The rooms are simply decorated but comfortable and cosy with an aim to uphold the aura held when they were first built.
Elephant sightings are commonplace with the camp's dining room the perfect vantage point from which to watch them cross the river. The lagoon that borders the lounge area and bar is also a great place to watch game with leopard and lion often using it as a watering hole.
1 hour flight from Lusaka to Mfuwe Airport (also accessed from Livingstone and Lilongwe in Malawi) followed by a 1 hour 15 minute game drive to the camp.
Walking safaris, game drives (day and night) and cultural/village tours.
