Chindeni Bushcamp

South Luangwa National Park


Chindeni Bushcamp Location Map

Open from May to December and set on the edge of a lagoon where hippo chortle and elephant wallow, stands Chindeni - one of the most beautiful tented camps in the South Luangwa.

There's something about sleeping under canvas that ignites a sense of adventure in everyone. At Chindeni you can combine that thrill with style and comfort in one of its 4 tents. Gaze out from your private veranda onto the lagoon which attracts birds and animals from miles around. Or settle back with a gin and tonic in the central lounge and dining area - an expanse of varnished decking arranged on several levels around the surrounding ebony trees, boasting, of course the same spectacular view.

Whether you are in the mood for intrepid exploration or perhaps some more sedentary wildlife viewing, Chindeni will deliver. Avid game viewers and birdwatchers can set out on superb walking safaris, game drives, night drives and scenic sundowner trips in the surrounding area or by the river. You can just set yourself in a deckchair at camp and watch the abundance of game that is drawn to the lagoon.

Raised on a wooden decking, Chindeni’s 4 en-suite canvas tents have private decks with hammocks, from which one can view the resident big game often in attendance, or simply enjoy the extensive birdlife and serenity of the camp. The tents are the most spacious in the Luangwa, each with 2 queen-sized beds or a king bed and bathroom with twin basins.  

The dining area is set above the oxbow lagoon with an adjoining lounge, deck and bar area, all with a stunning view across to the Chindeni Hills. Guests have been known to stay in camp during hot October days and see more from the deck than on a drive!
