Luangwa Valley, Zambia
Founded by pioneering Zambian conservationist Norman Carr in the 1950s, Nsefu has a great location on a huge bend in the Luangwa River in the remote Nsefu sector of South Luangwa National Park. It was Zambia’s first safari camp and still retains its authentic ambience. The six guest rooms are the original small rondavels (round cabins), now restored, each with their own en suite bathroom with flush toilet and shower, plus a veranda for enjoying sweeping views of the river. The thatch-roofed dining room and bar are great places to watch elephants, who regularly cross the river. Many types of antelope gather at the river (and sometimes walk through camp), and the small lagoon by the bar has a continuous stream of animals throughout the day.
