We had our first adventure into the South Luangwa National Park in July for a sleep over at the beautiful Norman Carr Safaris small bush camp Nsolo.
Jamie and I stayed at a sister property Mchenja Bush Camp back in 2007 with Jenny my sister and Ameika her daughter.
It is this trip that Jamie and I fell in love with Zambia and from then on I had a dream to work and live in a bush camp.
The South Luangwa National Park has been made famous by Norman Carr back in the mid 1955 when he discovered walking safaris. A very unique experience for guests back then and now you stay at one of the 6 small bush camps and by day with your highly trained and experienced Scout who carries a rifle and your guide you walk during the day from one bush camp to the next. Alternatively you stay in one camp for 2-3 nights and then they drive you one of the other camps to stay. The camps offer slightly different locations and styles and generally have a maximum of 4 tents or chalets so offer ultimate private bush experience. It should not be missed on a visit to the South Luangwa National Park.
My beautiful African Fish Eagle made a big welcome to us the first morning before game drive at Nsolo confirming we had made the right choice to live in Zambia!
Well that’s it, I think…..
Thanks to Norman Carr Safaris and Fiona at Bench International back in 2007 for showing us how wonderful this park is to holiday and live.
Wendy I love this post. You know we’d to come visit but probably not possible at this time.
If it wasn’t for our children and our beautiful grand babies, we’d be there in a minute.
I’m pretty much retired at this moment (God that sounds old) but as you know, we’re dead for a long time. Thinking about you and Jamie and love you lots xx
