South Luangwa National Park | Zambia

Nsolo

One of the most historical camps in Zambia, Time + Tide Nsolo Camp is the quintessential barefoot luxury experience.

With a design inspired by its intimate riverside setting, it is a haven of comfort amid the wild setting. Lounge on your shady private deck, watching the daily parade of wildlife visiting the permanent river lagoon. Between game drives, relax into the cosy ambiance of the camp, listening to the resident hippo pod and watching kingfishers hover and dip delicately over the water’s surface.

There is no thrill like hearing the lions calling all night, then heading out at first light to track them through the bush. Come, join us in this wild land and awaken your inner explorer. Venture into one of the most game rich areas of the national park with our award winning guiding team on game drives and walking safaris.

The South Luangwa is renowned for its world class predator action, with especially strong sightings of the elusive leopard. In the South Luangwa, expect large herds of elephants and rivers packed with hippos and crocs. Diverse habitat supports a wide variety of plains game and birdlife alongside the predators attracted to the abundance.

Time your visit with Zambia's seasons

Zambia follows the typical season pattern of Southern Africa with lovely long dry weather over the winter months between June and October. The rains in Zambia are often quite substantial and mean that many camps do close between mid-November and March.

Just before and just after the rains there are wonderful shoulder seasons which offer great game viewing at discounted prices.

While many camps do close in November there are a number of areas that actually come into their own over the summer months, including the Liuwa Plain which witnesses a fascinating wildebeest migration.

For guests wishing to spend time in Livingstone and Victoria Falls, the climate is the same as the majority of the country. However, to see the falls at their peak, you would want to visit between May and August. In March and April the waterfall can be flowing with so much power that you might not be able to actually see a huge amount! While in October the falls tend to only flow at a trickle.
