Nsolo Bush Camp is one of the more historic 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 Bush Camp.
Nsolo Bush Camp has just four very spacious chalets built on raised wooden decks with grass and reed walls and open large air en-suite bathrooms.

The chalets are individually designed, extremely comfortable yet still rustic and simple.

Zambezi Sands River Camp Reviews
“This camp specializes in walking safaris, although other safaris also available… only 4 individual, very roomy chalets, with raised decks, thatched roofs, massive outdoor bathrooms, all overlooking the river, when full, probably would have great game viewing…It is a very relaxed camp with siesta time, lovely central area, help yourself at the bar, drinks, tea, coffee etc. , library, lounging area. They also have electricity and wifi, although can be slow, which I didn’t find a problem. Fabulous dinner under the stars, on the riverbed.” – Amy M
“We walked to Nsolo from Luwi, our first Norman Carr bush camp. What a great experience. An opportunity to see all the little things after seeing the big things on the safari drives and night drives. And to make our stay at Nsolo even better was the food prepared by chef Million. Delicious!” – DeeBee88
“My favourite of the 5 Norman Carr camps I stayed at. Room looked out over dry river bed where there was still a small waterhole. Pride of lions in situ and watched them take down impala and lone buffalo. Philemoin was an excellent guide even with the added pressure of Dave the MD accompanying us on one drive. A really special camp for me with wonderful staff.” – don b
