Set within 60 acres of private land with Luangwa River frontage, just upstream from sister camp Kapani Lodge in the South Luangwa National Park, is the new generation of Zambian bush camps, Chinzombo. Nestled within the shade of ancient trees on a wildlife rich ridge, Chinzombo brings levels of comfort, style and elegance previously unseen to the Luangwa Valley. The camp is luxurious but retains its bush feel with canvas walls and spacious living areas that melt into the exquisite surroundings of the beautiful, tranquil site. Gigantic, ancient shade trees offer peace and tranquility for guests staying in any one of the stunning villas.
The Chinzombo villas appear to float over the landscape. The design is ground breaking and original but the simple use of steel, natural materials, locally produced leather, reed work and canvas, lack of concrete or brick and the recycled composite timber floors complement the wilderness perfectly, melting into the exquisite surroundings. Spacious living areas comprise large, cooled bedrooms, massive luxurious bathrooms, Wi-Fi and private plunge pools on shady decks overlooking the Luangwa.
A winding foot path connects the villas and lounge, dining, bar and fire pit area through the shade of the surrounding msikzi trees.
Chinzombo has private, direct boat access into one of the most game-rich areas of the South Luangwa National Park. This, combined with some of the parks legendary guides, makes Chinzombo the perfect place from which to explore the wilds of the Luangwa all year round whether on foot, on the river, or in a vehicle. Guests can also view wildlife directly from the camp.
