Deep in the heart of the South Luangwa National Park and on a scenic bend in Luwi River lies the seasonal Norman Carr Safaris, Nsolo Bush Camp. This is a very remote camp but the game viewing is very good, with many places perfect for walking safaris. There is a strong lion population in the area which can provide thrilling sightings for guests, with the big cats often seen padding down the river bed when it's dry.
There are 4 solar powered chalets, sheltered under charming evergreen trees. Raised off the ground on wooden decking and made from natural materials with private verandas providing excellent views, the accommodation is spacious and comfortable. Open air en suite bathrooms and walls made of reed comprise the authentic decor.
There are permanent pools of water in the Luwi riverbed which are an enduring source of attraction for wildlife. The bar and lounge area provide excellent views over this scene as does the library, all of which act as the ideal place to relax when not enjoying safari activities. These activities mostly take the form of walking safaris, which cover a variety of exciting terrain.
