Chinzombo Safari Camp

The Camp is situated on 60 acres of private pristine Luangwa River frontage. Set back within the shade of ancient trees on a wildlife-rich ridge which follows a C-shaped bend in the Luangwa River, the Chinzombo villas appear to float over the lush and tranquil landscape. A winding foot path connects the villas and lounge/dining area through the shade of the surrounding msikzi trees.

Chinzombo brings levels of comfort, style and elegance previously unseen to the Luangwa Valley in Zambia. The simplicity of the modernist steel-framed structures contrast the natural materials used in the décor and interiors, and complements the surroundings in a unique way.

The riverside location teems with wildlife, plus the private, direct access into one of the most game-rich areas of the national park all combine to make this a truly special place. The Camp is the perfect place from which to explore the majestic wilds of the Luangwa in style, luxury and exclusivity – all year round.

  • Six spacious villas set apart in the shade of towering and ancient trees (five private villas and a larger family villa).

The rooms are generously spacious, each containing two three-quarter or one king-sized bed.

Chinzombo has a Family Villa with up to 3 additional beds for children. There is wardrobe and shelving storage in the rooms, and an indoor and outdoor comfortable seating area and table.

Each spacious villa has a private pool, cooled sleeping area, spacious bathroom and Wi-Fi. Leather, canvas, wood, khaki and elephant grey take care of the safari aspect, while urban comforts, modern finishes and elegant furnishings convey the other face of Chinzombo – an exclusive boutique hotel in the bush.

The villas appear to be floating over the landscape with their raised position. They are connected to the main communal areas via a winding footpath through the tress. The villas each have a private plunge pool and a luxurious en-suite bathroom which offer plenty of hot water, towels and toiletries.

After dark, a member of staff will accompany you to and from your room, lighting the way and watching out for local wildlife.

Dining & Entertainment

The living – and dining area, where you can enjoy Chinzombo’s delicious culinary creations, look equally stylish. If you wish, you can have dinner in the privacy of your villa. They serve a simple breakfast and yummy buffet lunch with lots of variations, while for dinner you can choose between 2 options of starters, mains and desserts. Dining is absolutely a sublime experience at Chinzombo Camp in Zambia!

During your time spent at the camp in between safaris, you can enjoy the wifi access, the exercise and yoga area, the spa facilities and you refreshing plunge pools. There are plenty of shady decks overlooking the Luangwa for you to relax on and soak in the views.


Only 1 hour from Mfuwe Airport, Chinzombo Camp is set within 60 acres of private land with Luangwa River frontage. Being on safari is no longer solely about the variety of game you manage to spot. Rather, it has to be about experiencing a total lifestyle; one that incorporates fine cuisine, unparalleled comfort and a heightened connection with nature. This is exactly what you can experience at Chinzombo Camp in Zambia.

Architects Silvio Rech & Lesley Carstens, the visionaries behind North Island in Seychelles, Vumbura Plains Camp in Botswana and Leobo Private Reserve in South Africa, have created six luxurious tent-style villas (including one family villa).

Chinzombo’s new safari style is so inspiring and original and blends in with the natural world. The tented villas are like your own deluxe bush home and create a peaceful environment in which to relax after an early morning game drive. Enjoy listening to the soundtrack of the bush and watching the playful baboons in front of your villa…

…If you dream of experiencing an African safari adventure in Zambia, but hate the thought of “roughing it,” than Chinzombo Camp in South Luangwa National Park is the ultimate place to stay.
