Day 8 to 11 – Zikomo Safari Camp situated in Nsefu Sector - South Luangwa National Park

Zikomo Safari is in Zambia, across the river from South Luangwa National Park. It is set a midst an ancient valley filled with diverse African wildlife. This peaceful Eco Hotel in the African bush offers spacious accommodations: comfortable handcrafted chalets, or, if you are self-driving, an expansive campground on the riverbank. A central Main Hall offers a fine restaurant, bar and gathering place overlooking the swimming pool and the sprawling flood planes of the tranquil hippo filled Luangwa River.
Situated in the exclusive Nsefu Sector on a magnificent meander on the Luangwa River across which elephants often cross lies the historic camp Nsefu. Nsefu is one steeped in history and was built in 1951 and barring some upgrades the camp and rooms are still in the same place in the original style. The Nsefu sector was first pronounced a game reserve in 1966 some five years before the South Luangwa was even declared and has always been recognized as an outstanding game-viewing area. Robin Pope Safaris took over Nsefu in 1998, spent a year upgrading it and opened it the following July.
The camp welcomes just twelve guests in six original brick and thatch rondavels with en-suite facilities, each room opening up to what can simply be described as the best view in the South Luangwa.
