About Nsefu Camp
The South Luangwa National Park marks the end of the Great Rift Valley, one of the last remaining unspoilt wilderness areas and possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa - a claim which is not an overstatement. It is through this 9050sq kilometre National Park that the great meandering Luangwa River runs, with its ox bow lagoons, tributaries, riverine supported woodlands and large plains, all of which play host to huge concentrations of game including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo and over 450 species of birds.
Zambia's first photographic safari camp; Nsefu lies in the heart of the undeveloped Nsefu sector of South Luangwa National Park and so offers remoteness and seclusion. Each room has a clear view of the river. The bar, tucked in beside a huge extinct termite mound, overlooks a waterhole that is popular with game, especially leopard at night.
The view of the river is superb and includes a terraced area where game grazes during the day. The original rondavels have been extended, with a spacious bathroom added. Each room has a clear view of the river, through large windows and from the new wooden veranda.
Located in Nsefu sector of the South Luangwa National park, this area boasts one of the more exclusive game drive areas of the National Park.
The Luangwa Valley, which marks the end of the Great Rift Valley, is one of the last unspoilt wilderness areas and possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa.

The ox bow lagoons, woodland and plains of the valley host huge concentrations of game - including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo - and over 450 species of birds.
