About Nsefu Camp, South Luangwa

Nsefu Camp is one of the oldest camps in South Luangwa Valley National Park. Accommodating 12 guests, the rondavel accommodation consists of ensuite bathrooms and private terraces overlooking the river where elephants frequently cross for mud baths in the waterhole next to camp. This waterhole is also a popular retreat for resident leopards... Nsefu and Tena Tena Camps provide the start and finish points for a number of Robin Pope walking and camping safaris. 

Lodge Details


A charming, intimate and comfortable camp with a real yesteryear ambience and a true safari feel.


The camp has lots of permanent water supplies in close proximity, meaning a high concentration of game – easily viewable due to the water hole next to camp. The camp is based in the far north of South Luangwa Valley National Park, in the undeveloped Nsefu Sector.

Accommodation & Facilities

The 6 elegant brick and stone rondavels (round huts) can sleep up to 12 guests and sit in complete harmony with the surrounding bush. They are white washed with thatched roofs keeping the rooms airy. Each has a shady veranda with comfortable directors’ chairs and an en-suite shower and toilet complete with some typically English toiletries.

The central area is next to a massive termite mound, overlooking a water hole with a spectacular view of a bend in the river. There is also a thatched bar and communal lounge. The camp has even kept the original 1920’s basins and a working gramophone player. There is a full laundry service at Nsefu Camp.


Dinners are served by candlelight and breakfast at dawn on the grass terraced area at the front of the main lodge.


Day and night game drives are done in specially adapted vehicles with an expert guide. Walking safaris are also available and are always done with an armed ranged and fully qualified RPS guide.
