Nsefu

Nsefu was the first game camp in Zambia and dates back to the early 1950’s. The exclusive Nsefu Sector in the South Luangwa was recognised then as a phenomenal area and it still is to this day. 

Nsefu Camp is situated on a magnificent meander on the Luangwa River where elephants often cross. The Luangwa River with its ox bow lagoons, tributaries, riverine supported woodlands and large plains, all play host to huge concentrations of game including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo and over 450 species of birds.

Six traditional rondavels have been upgraded with spacious ensuite bathrooms, all enjoying views over the Luangwa River each with a terraced area where game grazes during the day. The bar and sitting area is tucked inbetween a huge dormant termite mound and a lagoon making the most of the extensive wildlife that comes down to the lagoon to drink, especially leopard at night.
