Description

Chindeni Bush Camp

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 sundowner trips. There is an abundance of game right in front of your room.

If you would like to learn more about this magnificent park for your safari to Africa, donate or get involved, then read up about Conservation South Luangwa.

As there are several bush camps to choose from and it’s an excellent idea to spend at least 2 nights at each have a look at Kuyenda, Kapamba, Zungulila, Chamilandu or Bilimungwe. Mfuwe Lodge is a great place to start your safari in Africa. Our expert advice would be to start with 2 nights at Mfuwe Lodge and then head off into the bush camps.

How to Get There

Fly into Lusaka with Ethiopian Airlines, South African Airways, Kenya Airways or Air Namibia. On arrival you can be met and escorted to your domestic flight to Mfuwe International Airport. (Meet and greet is an additional charge).

On arrival at Mfuwe you will be met by your guide who will drive you to the lodge.
