Nsefu Camp Robin Pope Safaris Luangwa Valley Zambia

On a sweeping bend of the Luangwa river, 12 kilometres north of Tena Tena, lies the "new" Nsefu Camp.

Nsefu rondavelNsefu was the first game camp in Zambia and dates back to the early fifties. The Nsefu sector was recognised then as a phenomenal game area and it still is.

  • At the end of the seventies the camp was abandoned.
  • Robin reopened Nsefu Camp in 1982 and this is where he really started earning his reputation.
  • He managed Nsefu for 5 years, during which time he used the Tena Tena site as a fly camp.
  • In 1986 he left Nsefu and moved to Tena Tena full time.

Robin and Jo reopened the camp in July 1999, in keeping with the original style, and so operate the only 2 camps in the Nsefu Sector of the park.

A bit about Nsefu Camp
The view of the river from Nsefu Camp is superb and includes a terraced area where game grazes during the day. The bar and communal lounge area is tucked in beside a huge extinct termite mound. It overlooks a waterhole that is very productive for game - for those fortunate enough, leopard at night are a special reward.

The bright lights - Nsefu Camp, South LuangwaThe 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 verandas. The dining area is a large thatched shelter on the downstream end of camp - it has a fantastic view onto the Luangwa and main terrace.

The camp lies in the heart of the undeveloped Nsefu sector and offers charm and total comfort in remoteness and seclusion. Early morning at Nsefu
