Chinzombo Camp – South Luangwa
Ultimate wild luxury – Zambia’s premier safari camp – Award-winning design on the riverfront
Situated on a sweeping curve of the Luangwa River, Chinzombo brings style and sophistication to the Luangwa Valley. Designed by award-winning architects Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens, Chinzombo won Best New Property in Africa in 2014 and again in 2015. 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. Each villa offers panoramic views of the Luangwa River and the abundant wildlife that frequents its banks. Sprawling, ancient shade trees and private plunge pools offer comfort and relaxation for guests staying in any one of the six stunning villas.
Venture into one of the most game rich areas of the national park with our award-winning guiding team. The South Luangwa is renowned for its world-class predator action, with especially strong sightings of the elusive leopard. Explore the region’s diverse habitats with game drives, safari walks and boat cruises (seasonal). Pamper yourself with an in-villa spa treatment during your midday break between safari activities.
When acquiring Chinzombo’s location, a portion of the proceeds funded the relocation of black rhino to North Luangwa National Park, where the North Luangwa Conservation Programme operate a rhino breeding and reintroduction project.
Best Time to Visit Zambia
The recognised best times to visit Zambia for the best game viewing along with pleasantly mild daytime temperatures is during the dry season, May to October although September and October can be exceptionally hot. It is during the dry season when animals congregate around the rivers and waterholes. During the wet season (November to April) some roads in the parks can be inaccessible resulting in some camps being closed. The scenery in Zambia is always spectacular throughout the year.
It is your responsibility to check the entry visa requirements with the individual embassy of each country you intend visiting prior to departure.
