We were transferred from Kuyenda via Mfuwe to Nsefu. This included a fascinating crossing of a river with rather a lot of hippo! Nsefu is the oldest of the camps and had recently been updated. Everything was very nice and comfortable although the rondavels were a bit on the small side. The logistics of eating were a bit muddled as... More

Braston, our guide found us 7 leopards over the few days we were in camp. Nsefu in August lies on the bend of a river with very low water levels - a photographer's paradise - hippos as far as the eye can see, driftwood and pale sandy banks. Elephants crossing the river in the distance then trundling down the banks... More

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

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
