Chinzombo

South Luangwa National Park


Chinzombo Location Map

Wildly luxurious and designed by award winning architects Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens, Chinzombo brings levels of comfort, style and elegance previously unseen to the Luangwa Valley. The camp is super-luxurious but retains its bush feel with grass and canvas walls and spacious living areas that melt into the exquisite surroundings of the beautiful, tranquil site.

The camp is set within 60 acres of private land with Luangwa River frontage. The views from this riverside location teem with wildlife, plus the lodge's private and direct access into one of the most game rich areas of the National Park all combine to make this a truly special place.

Venture into one of the most game rich areas of the National Park with the award-winning guiding team, either on a game drive, on foot, or on a boat cruise (seasonl activity only). The South Luangwa is renowned for its world-class predator action, with especially strong sightings of the elusive leopard.

Inbetween game activities, pamper yourself with an in-room spa treatment or relax around the pool area.

Each of the 5 villas offers panoramic views of the Luangwa River and the abundant wildlife that frequents its banks. Gigantic, ancient trees offer peace and tranquility for guests staying here, and in addition, each villa has its own private pool, cooled sleeping areas, and a massive bathroom.

There is also one Family Villa, which has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms - making this option perfect for families or small groups.

A winding footpath connects the suites and lounge/dining area through the shade of the surrounding msikzi trees.
