Chinzombo Luxury Camp is in a league of its own when compared to many safari camps in Zambia and it radiates an elegant but not overstated luxury and style on the banks of the Luangwa River in the extraordinary landscapes of the South Luangwa National Park. This is Time + Tide Chinzombo Luxury Camp and Voyage2Africa recommends it as a natural bush safari camp for those who want to spend their days walking in the wilderness with trained game rangers and trackers.
This particular traditional safari camp is named after a certain tree species which grows in the region and the camp blends into the natural vegetation thanks to its eco style and dedication to reducing its impacts on nature. It’s a vintage-style camp with classic features and natural materials making it rustic yet chic so ideal for those who want to get off the beaten track in some kind of comfortable way.
Settle into six spacious elegant tents, including one family tent with two bedrooms ensuite, beneath the ancient Mzikizi trees each tented suite features a private plunge pool, a deep bathtub with endless riverine views and plentiful wildlife. The use of wood, reeds, leather and pure linens creates a quality escape in nature and the large private decks are the ideal settings for private meals, private spa treatments and all-day game viewing.
Not far away, just down the twisty pathway lies the main lodge with its welcoming sun deck on the river, a cosy bar, a wonderful fire pit for evenings of fine food and conversation and a small library too. Plunge into two infinity swimming pools the choose a bottle of wine from the wine cellar. Chinzombo Camp is right on the banks of the pretty Luangwa River in the central South Luangwa National Park.
Spend a few nights here in luxury and still get to walk in the wilderness and rough it a bit from the luxury Chinzombo Luxury Camp in South Luangwa National Park right on the meandering Luangwa River. Beautiful villa accommodation under canvas is created from wood, reeds, natural linens and décor that offsets the biodiverse environment surrounding each tented suite. This safari camp in Zambia stands out from the others in the Park thanks to its elegance and eco-friendly structures.
Chinzombo is part of the famous Time + Tide properties dedicated to conservation since the 1950s in South Luangwa and driven by the legendary Norman Carr who promotes walking safaris in the heart of conservation areas, including the Liuwa Plain and Lower Zambezi National Park.
