Nsolo is a rustic bush camp which encompasses barefoot luxury. The camp gets back to nature with all the comforts but without being over the top. Keeping the charm of a bygone era, it continues to appeal to passionate walkers who want to be in the bush as it was first discovered.
To give an authentic bush camp feel, the intimate, five chalet camp incorporates local materials entwined with the trees that have stood there for years. This is the perfect spot for those who have been on a few safaris and are really looking to explore on foot (game drives are available) in rustic, yet, comfortable luxury.

As with all the Norman Carr camps, the locations are specially chosen due to the wildlife density. With that in mind, Nsolo is right on the efflux of two lion pride territories. They are often found scent marking the river bed or roaring at each other, it is never a dull day keeping up with the lion’s antics. If that wasn’t enough, the wild dogs are often spotted denning here, year after year.
South Luangwa is well known for its healthy cat populations with leopards being spotted at almost every corner, but there is also a very healthy wild dog population with one pack having 22 members. If this is one of the animals left on your tick list, we suggest you make a visit!
If you ever wanted to sleep out under the stars then this is one of the most magical spots you could choose. You have a hammock style sleeping bag with just a mosquito net to separate you from the elements, set up in the riverbed. Which means you can gently lull to sleep under all the twinkling stars of the milky way.
Enjoy watching as the nocturnal animals around you start to come alive; hippos munching the grass, lions calling to each other and hyenas cackling as they try to steal a kill. But, don’t worry you will have an armed guard carefully watching over you, to keep you safe!
Nsolo is one of the few camps that has kept its rustic charm from a bygone era. There are just five thatched chalets on raised decks; each has its own style hidden among the trees using natural features to help blend them into the surroundings. With simple yet comfortable furnishing, it encompasses barefoot luxury.
The main areas are all open-air, set among the trees for shade allowing you to have uninterrupted views of the wildlife. Predominantly a walking camp, it is set up for those who really want to explore the bush without any unnecessary ‘designer chic’ – just raw nature.
