Safari Zambia: Nsolo

Situated in a secluded area in the middle of South Luangwa National Park, on the banks of Luwi River's sandy riverbed, travellers will find Nsolo Camp. Here you can learn more about the idyllic accommodation

Travel Guide

Safari in Zambia: Like its sister camp Luwi, Nsolo is situated in a secluded location in the middle of South Luangwa National Park on the sandy riverbed of the Luwi River. Those who let their gaze wander over vast landscapes will, with a little bit of luck, spot lions and other wild animals of the bush that migrate across the plain.

Guests are accommodated for their stay in spacious chalets built on wooden platforms with adjoining bush bathrooms. The wilderness can be admired directly from the private small veranda – or on one of the excellently guided walking safaris which, especially in this region, are a real experience.

Staying at Nsolo


Nsolo lies deep in the heart of the South Luangwa National Park, directly on the partly dry, partly water-bearing Luwi River.

The Camp

Guest accommodation

Guests in Nsolo will be accommodated in one of five comfortable elevated chalets, each with its own fully-equipped outdoor bathroom. There is also a small private veranda with seating in front of each chalet. From here you can observe the wide landscapes and the passing wildlife. Mosquito nets are available in all chalets. Children from 12 years are welcome in Luwi on request.

Central facilities

Nsolo is located on the banks of the sandy Luwi riverbed and overlooks a vast area over which wildlife such as lions and giraffes often migrate. The camp is elevated on wooden platforms. The semi-open main area includes a cosy lounge, a small bar and the dining area. Right next to it is a small fireplace with seats. From here you can admire the Luwi riverbed and the local wildlife. The camp is primarily supplied with solar energy; WiFi is not available. However, a free laundry service is available to guests.



Norman Carr is considered the pioneer of walking safaris. And you should enjoy these here in Nsolo! The bush walks through the depths of South Luangwa National Park give you an undisturbed and thus more authentic impression of the way of life of the animals of the bush. Safaris in open jeep, by day and after sunset are also offered. Exciting animal observations can also be made from the camp itself and from your own chalet. The riverbed of the Luwi River is not only a great place to spot wildlife, but also a very special place for a wonderful private candlelight dinner. If you are looking for adventure, you can also book a Wilderness Sleep-out: accompanied by a guide, your camp will be pitched for the night at a selected spot in the riverbed and you will spend the night under Zambia's starry sky tent – an unforgettable experience.



Nsolo is one of the most remote camps in the South Luangwa National Park. Great views of the small, often dried out Luwi River in front of the camp are the order of the day here. The place is ideal to observe wild animals in their natural environment. The region around Nsolo is particularly famous for its lion populations, which make the excellent guided walking safaris a very special experience. As in its sister camps, Nsolo is always committed to the environment and sustainability. We always apply environmentally conscious standards with regard to the construction of the camp, equipment and safari activities.


The region around Nsolo is known for its wonderful opportunities for lion and even wild dog sightings. If you go deeper into the South Luangwa National Park, you may encounter leopards, buffalos, hyenas, zebras, giraffes, warthogs, honey badgers, porcupines, various antelope species and a variety of birds. Interesting note: The Cookson wildebeest, the Thorneycroft giraffe and the Crawshay zebra are endemic here, so they only occur in the South Luangwa National Park.
