The Camp

Situated on a sweeping curve of the Luangwa River, Chinzombo brings style and sophistication to the Luangwa Valley. This wildly luxurious camp retains its bush authenticity with grass and canvas walls and spacious living areas that melt into the exquisitely tranquil riverside setting. Colonial accents complement organic textures, creating an authentic feel that harkens back to the early days of exploration. With soaking tubs and feathertop beds, every villa is a haven for relaxation. Relax by your villas private pool, watching the rivers frequent wildlife visitors. Under the shade of ancient trees, listen to the bellows of hippos echoing across the river.

Wildlife

December - April: Is the Green Season. With many migrant species flocking to the river this is an excellent time for bird watching and with the Luangwa River flowing at its highest levels following the rainy season, February and March are a great time for boating safaris.

Generally speaking, leopard and lion sightings are good all year round and you have a strong chance of finding them whatever the season. The same goes for large breeding herds of elephants.

May - November is peak safari season and when walking safaris begin. Between September and November is the best time to spot the brightly coloured carmine bee-eaters nesting in the dry river banks, whilst the peak dry season (October-November) is a great time to see predator action as animals concentrate around dwindling water sources. Wild dogs are most commonly sighted between October - April.

Need to Know
  • Children of all ages welcome
  • Open all year
