Chinzombo Safari Camp
Chinzombo Safari Lodge is nestled in a grove of ebony and mahogany trees on the banks of the Luangwa River, and it epitomises sheer luxury with unrivalled levels of service and guiding.
Chinzombo brings levels of comfort, style and elegance previously unseen to the Luangwa Valley in Zambia.
Chinzombo, named after the chinzombo fruit, was once a simple, rustic camp on the banks of the Luangwa, before undergoing a total refit to become one of the most luxurious options in the Valley. The original Camp was the green season base for Norman Carr way back in the 1970’s. Having been given a new lease of life by award-winning designers, Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens, the new camp is extremely luxurious while retaining its bush feel with grass and canvas walls and spacious living areas that melt into the exquisite surroundings of the beautiful, tranquil site.
Gigantic, ancient shade trees offer peace and tranquility for guests staying in any one of the six beautiful villas, one of which is a family suite with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, perfect for families or small groups. Each villa has its own private plunge pool, cooled sleeping areas, and huge bathroom, and are connected to the main communal areas via a winding footpath through the trees.
The camp is set within sixty acres of private land with Luangwa River frontage. The views from its riverside location which teem 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.
Chinzombo Camp is the perfect place from which to explore the majestic wilds of the Luangwa in style, luxury and exclusivity – all year round.
