The ultimate luxury safari at Time and Tide Nsolo Camp

Time + Tide Nsolo Camp has won awards for its excellence in accommodation and safaris in South Luangwa National Park, Zambia’s top game reserve where walking safaris are the best way to view wildlife. Voyage2Africa recommends Nsolo Camp for its exceptional accommodation in chalets of grass and reeds, its eco-friendly approach to building and use of energy and its expert team of game rangers and guides. 

Walking in the wildlife rich region of South Luangwa National Park opens up an authentic African safari for all visitors to Time + Tide camps, especially this rustic chic Nsolo Bush Camp which was found in 1987 on a bend in the Luwi sand river where antelope and predators pass through. This wild camp uses solar power and all four chalets have been created from grass and reeds in a natural approach to accommodation that blends into the surrounding environment. 

Stunning wooden decks allow plenty of privacy and the ensuite showers are hot and alfresco, leading off large bedrooms with wonderful amenities to keep you warm and comfy. Wander down to the central camp area to enjoy the shady bar lounge area and extensive terrace for ongoing game viewing on the banks of the dry Luwi River and its waterholes. Dine together in the sandy river bed at the dining table with lanterns to light up the delicious food. 

Look out for wild dogs around the camp, honey badgers, crocodiles and plenty of elephants and hippos. Set off on walking trails every day to see more in the fauna and flora of the Zambian bushveld. Sundowner game drives show the leopards in their thickets, the owls in their trees and many more wonderful night creatures and sounds. 

Time + Tide Nsolo is indeed a special bush camp that we can add to your tour of South Luangwa when you customize your holiday to several Norman Carr camps in the wilderness. 



Stay in this classic bush camp dating back to 1987 when Norman Carr discovered the site on the dry Luwi Riverbed in the South Luangwa National Park – Time + Tide Nsolo is beautifully rustic with a dedication to mind-blowing walking safaris. 

Raised on wooden stilted decks, the grass and reed chalets perch on their own spots on the enormous bend of the dry Luwi River and its waterholes. Guests are treated to panoramic views of the lush vegetation and infinite landscape while wild animals continually come and go to drink at the water sources in front of the camp lounge and bar. Only 4 of these rustic chalets peep out from the trees and each one offers bamboo windows, hot showers, large beds and wraparound decks with their own sofas and seats for all-day chilling and bird watching. 

Spend time after long walks in the main ‘chitenge’, a thatched shady lounge bar area with lovely colourful mats on polished wooden floors and enhanced by classical safari décor and relics of a modern colonial era. Choose a safari chair under a tall indigenous tree in which to read a book then chat to rangers later around the dining table in the dry sandy river bed. 

While walking in the wilderness is the focus at Nsolo, game drives are also popular on the few roads through this section of the park – a drive and a walk are the best ways to do it. Guests can also walk to the wild sleep-out camp to experience a night in nature in casual tents with a fire for food and stars for friends. Another option is to walk to the sister camps of Luwi and Kakuli and stay the night there. It’s all a fantastic adventure in South Luangwa on an entirely different level of immersion in the wildlife habitat.
