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.
