Chamilandu Bush Camp

South Luangwa National Park

There is nothing quite like waking up in the mornings at Chamilandu. Simply lift your head and the sweeping views of the river come to life. There is a constant parade of wildlife crossing from the Game Management Area into the national park. Hippo wallow and snort from the deeper pools. Crocodile bask on the many sand bars and elephant herds cross constantly.

After your morning walk or drive you can sit on your private deck and bird watch. Breeding herds of elephant are around and in view all the time. There is a large Winterthorn tree out the back of the kitchen that elephants love to feed on.

A short distance from the camp is the hide. Ask your guide Gilbert to walk you there as it often attracts a variety of animals. The hide is positioned overlooking a small water hole and is a great place to spend an afternoon – Elephant, birds and baboon are all regular visitors here.

Chamilandu sits under a grove of Ebony Trees. The fruit is a favorite of the baboons so there is always a Leopard lurking close by. Their cough at night, a warning to all that wander in the darkness.
