Chindeni Bush Camp
South Luangwa National Park
Chindeni Bush Camp has an enviable location on the edge of a lagoon where hippo chortle and elephant wallow – undoubtedly one of the most beautiful tented camps in the South Luangwa.
There’s something about sleeping under canvas that ignites a sense of adventure in everyone. At Chindeni you combine that thrill with style and comfort in one of its four opulent tents. Gaze out from your private veranda onto the lagoon which attracts birds and animals from miles around. Or settle back with a gin-and-tonic in the central lounge and dining area – a glorious expanse of varnished decking arranged on several levels around the surrounding ebony trees, boasting, of course, the same spectacular view of the serene lagoon and its inhabitants.
With stripped wooden floors, four-poster beds, cosy sitting rooms, en suite bathrooms and vaulted canvas ceilings, Chindeni’s spacious tents are so inviting you could be forgiven for never wanting to leave your room. Two of the tents have twin beds (queen-sized beds), while the other two each have a king bed. Chindeni is open from May to December.
Whether you are in the mood for intrepid exploration or perhaps some more sedentary wildlife viewing, Chindeni Bush Camp will deliver. Avid game viewers and birdwatchers can set out on superb walking safaris, game drives, night drives and scenic sun downer trips. There is an abundance of game right in front of your room.
