The view from your bedroom, from the lounge area and from the dining deck is the pure African wilderness of the South Luangwa. Beyond the bend in the Luangwa River is a series of flats with a permanent procession of antelope and plains game; in the foreground is a swampy waterhole frequented by elephant, buffalo, warthog and the occasional lion or leopard comes along to stir things up in the evening.
The rooms at Nsefu are spacious, cool and comfortable the en suite bathrooms look out over the bush to the rear of the camp and large wooden balconies extend from the front door with a view of the river and waterhole.
