About us

Welcome To Nsobe Game Camp

Located on a pristine Miombo woodland game-farm, overlooking a beautiful dam, Nsobe is home to giraffes, zebras, warthogs, various nocturnal animals, monkeys and 15 species of antelope, including the rare Sitatunga, Black Lechwe and Sable.

Over 300 species of bird-life have been spotted.

Nsobe traces its origins to the Cape to Cairo railway. In 1908 the Steam Engine track was laid through what would become Nsobe Game Camp and Miengwe Farm. Cottage 200 (the ruins of which are on the farm) was built and a man called George Rankin was based there with the task of keeping the steam trains supplied with water and wood fuel. On retirement Mr Rankin was given a farm cut out of the forest reserve, adjacent to the railway line. This farm plus surrounding plots grew to be Nsobe.

Nsobe Game Camp was started in 2001, and is part of a 1500 hectare commercial farm, Miengwe Farm Ltd. Other core businesses on Miengwe Farm are Fisheries, Beef Herd and Feedlotting, Piggery, Processing and Game Ranching. Nsobe Game Camp and Miengwe Farm are currently undergoing a Management Buy-out, and as a reward for our people’s commitment 50% of the shares will be held by our employees once the buy-out is completed.

Nsobe Community School provides quality education for our surrounding village children.

PROJECTS

Nsobe Trust School

In Rural Zambia there are not enough schools,

there was no school accessible to the village children in our area.
Ninety percent of our children’s parents are illiterate and live way below the poverty line.
To offer hope and the chance of an educated future for these children, Nsobe Community School was started in 2009.

We now have a primary and secondary school, with a full staff of dedicated teachers.

 Nsobe Community School is a school with a difference.
We believe in offering not only education, but education with employment opportunity.
We offer a Christ-Centred education, preparing pupils not only for jobs, but for life.
Help us to educate these vulnerable rural children, change lives, uplift a community and develop Zambia.
