Project Description


Nsefu Camp is located on a beautiful bend of the Luangwa River within the exclusive Nsefu Sector of the South Luangwa National Park. Nsefu was the first safari camp in Zambia and dates back to the 1950s. The Nsefu Sector was recognised then as a phenomenal area, and it still is.

Robin Pope Safaris reopened the camp in 1999, keeping with the original rondavel style. Together with its sister camp Tena Tena, they are the only two camps in the Nsefu Sector. The view of the river from Nsefu is superb and includes a terraced area where animals feed during the day.

The bar is tucked in beside a huge dormant termite mound, overlooks a waterhole that is very productive for game, especially leopard at night. 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.
