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 so the attention was very personal. The drives were great with good wildlife and birds as well as a very knowledgeable guide. The roundels were very comfortable with wonderful night sounds from the hippos in the river and the food was very enjoyable.

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 the camp--hippos, elephants, giraffes, baboons and even two lions. Nsefu has a different terrain than the rest of the park and the temperatures are more moderate. The old rondelles were very nicely renovated with open air restrooms and porches. The new director George and his wife Merle have the place running great, and the staff is superb. The meals were all delicious; especially enjoyable were the breakfasts and one dinner by the river bank. George also served as a wonderful guide, combining extensive knowledge and experience with a calm sense of drama. As the oldest camp in South Luangwa, with histories shared by both Robert Carr and Robin Pope, Nsefu has a special feel. We relished every minute and long to return.

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 seeing the environment is by foot which brings a whole new perspective and feeling of connection with the Bush. From encounters with Lions, large groups of storks, Elephants and some of the closest encounters with hippos ever the wildlife experience was enhanced by being on a much smaller scale(in terms of distance travelled) and seemingly much more intense. Coupled with great food, good company and a relaxing environment around the camp this is a camp that whilst being one of the oldest still continues to deliver.

This is a real African experience.

You are in a very remote part of the park on a huge bend in the river.The river is full of crocs and hippos

This camp has six huts each of which holds two people, each room has a small balcony and in the middle of the afternoon we were visited each day by elephants and baboons climbing the ebony tree for the fruit. At other times of the day we were visted by giraffes, and hippos, the odd warthog and we heard lions. Maybe 200 meters away we spotted a leopard

While on safari, yes a 5.30 am start we spotted all the big four, rhinos not included, almost every day

In the open top land cruisers you get very very very close. This part of the park is full with animals it is amazing.

We saw no other vehicles apart from the other vehicle from our camp and one spotting of another vehicle from tena camp at a distance

The accomodation has limited electricity for a couple of hours a day, the showers are partly outside

The place is magical , the food is magnificent. If god made a safari holiday this was the place to have it

Thanks to the team at RPS and particularly our guide Braston

Room Tip: This is a wonderful place but it's not the Marriott....the animals are very very close.
