Time + Tide Nsolo camp, South Luangwa National Park gets its name from the honeyguide bird and for the right reason, as it is the perfect spot for bird lovers. On a game drive, every corner you turn you will be faced with yet another change of scenery, from sprawling savanna, shady woodlands to small hippo filled lagoons. Nsolo offers visitors a chance to experience a true remote bush experience, you are unlikely to come across any other vehicles, making you feel as though you have got the park to yourselves.
The camp consists of 5 spacious tents, all made from local grasses, conveniently raised on wooden decks to allow for a better view of the surroundings. Each room has its own unique layout, with a mix of indoor and outdoor bathrooms. They have been built intertwined with the local evergreen trees and reflect the local culture. With a private shady veranda at the front, you can spend your afternoons relaxing and watching all the different species that come to drink from the watering hole.
The communal dining area is large and spacious and offers black & white photographs and diaries back from the beginning of the camps life in the 1980’s allowing you to delve deep into the history of the camp. Enjoy breakfast by the warmth of a fire, lunch under the shades of a large evergreen tree and dinner under the stars.
The camp is conveniently situated close to where wild dogs and hyena are known to den, providing high chances of a sighting. Nsolo, located in the middle of the other Time + Tide properties, offers amazing walking routes to Kakuli, Luwi and Mchenja Lodges, some routes take you along the dry riverbed and others through the thicket of the bush.
All of the Time + Tide properties within South Luangwa National Park work extremely well in collaboration with Chongwe House or Chongwe River Lodge in the iconic Lower Zambezi National Park or the sureal King Luwanika Lodge in Liuwa Plains.
