Nsefu came in the middle of our 2+ week trip to Zambia. Very enjoyable and historic camp located on a beautiful section of the Luangwa River. A special treat was that this section of the river is a favorite spot for large herds of elephant to cross in middle of the day. Our lunches at river bank were made particularly... More

WOW is all I really need to say. Our second trip to Zambia and this time South Luwanga and what a place. Location perfect, accommodation perfect especially the addition of little frogs in the bathroom. Food excellent... staff a pleasure. Our guide was brilliant he totally charmed my mother with his sense of humour and yet huge reservoir of knowledge.... More

As part of our five week visit to Africa, we visited Nsefu following two days at another Robin Pope camp. Nsefu may be one of the oldest camps in the valley but it is the most gorgeous setting. The wildlife surround the camp and regularly walk through the camp. There were only 3 other guests there at the same time... More

Our three nights at Nsefu were the most thrilling part of our 40th anniversary celebration. The camp is dramatically situated on the Luangwa River. It is only one of two camps in the Nsefu section of South Luangwa park, so we almost never encountered other vehicles or walkers. But we did see lots of birds and animals including those in... More

After a boat transfer from our previous camp which in itself was a game drive with Fish Eagles,kingfishers and Hippo's in abundance we arrived at this small camp of 6 cabins and felt at home from the first moment thanks to the 2 guides Bertram & Fred. The experience here was different as rather than drives the main method of... More

We stayed here after a 5 night walking safari and it was perfect. The location in the Nsefu part of the Park has high concentration of game and the setting on the bend of the river is beautiful and atmospheric. The nearby oxbow lakes are stunning - we both drove and walked to them and they are a delight to... More

Nsefu is a very special place, which is why we've returned to it in 2012. In some ways it's a shame it doesn't get more reviews, but both times we've been privileged to have the place to ourselves, so maybe that's not such a bad thing after all from our point of view. Nsefu during the wet is the most... More

Everything about this lodge was perfect and the afternoon show put on by the local wildlife while I sat on my porch with my feet up on the rope "railing" was almost as good as the game "drives" (which were taken by boat and, partially, on foot). At various times there were two elephants eating the bushes behind my chalet,... More
