Accommodation in this luxury safari camp consists of four
individually designed chalets each on raised wooden decks

Nsolo is one of the more historic camps in Zambia. It was
sited by Norman, Adrian and the legendary Rice Time Tembo in
1987, Nsolo is the local name for the honey guide and the
camp was named after this extraordinary little bird.
By amazing co-incidence it was later learnt that this
area used to be home to a famous local hunter – also called
Nsolo! Managed and hosted for 15 years by Shaddy Nkhoma, one
of the best guides in Zambia, Shaddy is now concentrating on
private guiding and his protégée Innocent Tembo is taking
over the leadership at Nsolo.
As with Luwi Bushcamp, this is one of the South
Luangwa's more remote, luxury safari camps with many
wonderful walking areas in the vicinity. There is also the
opportunity to participate in game drives for those wishing
to combine walking and driving.
The Luwi river system (where Luwi, Nsolo and Kakuli Bush
Camps are situated) is renowned for its lion population.
Various pride territories overlap in this area and the cats
use the dry river bed as a thoroughfare and a means not only
of locating their prey, which come to drink, but also of
locating their rivals who must be warned to stay away. Wild
dogs have denned between Luwi and Nsolo for the last 6 years
and chances of seeing these elusive creatures are high.
Leopard also abound in the area.
There are few African experiences more exciting than
heading out on a walking safari early in the morning, having
heard lions calling through the night, finding their fresh
tracks and following them through the bush. With voices
hushed and hearts beating your mind is suggesting there is a
lion over every rise; this is big game viewing on foot at
