also referred to as Luangwa Bush Camping
, is located in the Northern Sector
of South Luangwa National Park
in eastern Zambia
If you are intending to stay in the two Robin Pope Safaris camps in the Nsefu Sector of the reserve, Nsefu Camp
and Tena Tena Camp
, then you can turn up the intensity by walking between the two and staying in a light mobile camp along the way, either for one or two nights.
Walking will, as usual, mainly concentrate on the nuances of flora, fauna and tracking, but will usually also include deliberate attempts to approach potentially dangerous animals such as elephants, buffaloes, hippos and lions. In other words, this is proper walking safari.
This is an exclusive experience, so you just you and the staff. On your walk you will be accompanied by an armed park ranger and a specialist RPS walking guide.
Morning and afternoon walks usually last for 3-4 hours and go at a leisurely pace, with a long break for a proper lunch and a siesta. The usual walking distance is around 10km per day, so really not too tough. Although later in the season, Oct/Nov, the temperatures may climb sufficiently high to make even that seem very arduous.
The overnight stops are in a light mobile camp which is set out by a separate support crew and consists of a table and chairs for dining, plus small Meru tents with proper beds and other small furnishings. There is a shared safari bathroom with washstand, bucket shower and long-drop toilet.
Nsefu Trail is an excellent way to get out an explore the bush, have some real adventures and enjoy the intimate company of a lovely Zambian crew.Prices
