Time + Tide Nsolo

South Luangwa

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

Nestled along the banks of the seasonal Luwi River, a permanent river lagoon attracts a daily parade of wildlife that guests can watch from their room's private deck.

Nsolo is the local name for the honey-guide and the camp was named after this extraordinary little bird.
