Norman Carr Safaris - Nsolo Bush Camp

Nsolo is one of the more historical luxury safari camps in Zambia. It was sited by Norman, Adrian and the legendary Rice Time Tembo in 1987, Nsolo is the local name for the honey guide and the camp was named after this extraordinary little bird. By amazing co-incidence it was later learnt that this area used to be home to a famous local hunter – also called Nsolo! Managed and hosted for 15 years by Shaddy Nkhoma, one of the best guides in Zambia, Shaddy is now concentrating on private guiding and his protégée Philemon Banda is taking over the leadership at Nsolo.

Wildlife HighlightsWildlife Highlights

The Luwi river system (where LuwiNsolo, Mchenja and Kakuli Bush Camps are situated) is renowned for its lion population. Various pride territories overlap in this area and the cats use the dry river bed as a thoroughfare and a means not only of locating their prey, which come to drink, but also of locating their rivals who must be warned to stay away.

Wild dogs have denned between Luwi and Nsolo for the last 6 years and chances of seeing these elusive creatures are high. Leopard also abound in the area.

Local ActivitiesLocal Activities

There are few African experiences more exciting than heading out on a walking safari early in the morning, having heard lions calling through the night, finding their fresh tracks and following them through the bush. With voices hushed and hearts beating your mind is suggesting there is a lion over every rise; this is big game viewing on foot at its best.
