Chamilandu Bush Camp

From: $570.00

Chamilandu is set close to the banks of the mighty Luangwa River. With raised decks each chalet has perfect privacy and fantastic views of the river and opposite bank. Elephant, Giraffe, Hippo and Crocodile are regularly spotted from the camp. The open decks and bathrooms create a beautiful open feel to the camp and combine understated luxury with a true bush experience.

Description

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 bask 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 herds of elephant and many different bird species. Dinners at Chamilandu are always a fantastic experience.

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.

How to Get There

Fly into Lusaka and you will be met and escorted to your domestic flight to Mfuwe International Airport. On arrival at Mfuwe Airport you will be met by your guide and driven to Chamilandu via Mfuwe Lodge.
