Nsefu Bush Camp

 

Zambia action 1South Luangwa’s wildlife–filled plains offer outstanding wildlife watching, particularly just before the rains commence in November. Its remoteness, species diversity, scenery and bush walking makes South Luangwa one of the most worthwhile wildlife experiences to discover in Africa. Away from the main gate there are only a small number of camps located along the Luangwa River and most have just 4 – 6 tents. The quality of the park is also reflected in the quality of its guides.

 

stephen_mills_011[1]Stephen Mills is a highly respected naturalist, wildlife researcher, conservationist, wildlife film-maker and specialist safari host. He will open up Pandora’s box on the animal behaviour as it unfolds before you and on it’s role within the Luangwa ecosystem, as well as draw the best out of the local guides whilst retaining utmost respect of the natural world. Stephen Mills will greatly enhance your safari experience with informative discussions on wildlife conservation and topical research projects as well as recounting his numerous adventures as a natural history camera man.

Zambia action 4

 

South Luangwa is Zambia’s best protected area in terms of the diversity and density of species it supports. The Luangwa River is its lifeblood. Along its course you will see pods of hippos and plenty of crocodiles. It flows all year but in the dry season it is the numerous ox-bow lakes where wildlife viewing is at its best.  On the wide open plains impala, puku, bushbuck, kudu, Roan antelope, hartebeest, reedbuck, Cookson’s wildebeest, waterbuck, Thornicroft’s giraffe, Crawshay’s zebra and buffalo graze,  and prides of  lions and packs of wild dogs hunt. Leopards, of which there are many, mainly hunt in the dense woodland and herds of elephants wade through the marshes. The birdlife is also tremendous with over 400 species to look for.
