Nsefu

Nsefu was the first game camp in Zambia and dates back to the early fifties. The Nsefu Sector was recognised then as a phenomenal area and it still is. 

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 (round huts), each with a spacious en suite enjoy views over the Luangwa River and includes a terraced area where game grazes during the day. The bar, tucked in beside a huge dormant termite mound, overlooks a waterhole that is very productive for game, especially leopard at night.
