Description

Chinzombo

South Luangwa National Park

Chinzombo is located on a broad sweeping bend of the Luangwa River overlooking the National Park. The lodge is situated in the GMA or Game Management Area and is close to the original location of Norman Carr’s first photographic safari camp dating back to the 1930’s. As the Father of walking safaris and the instigator behind South Luangwa becoming a national park, the area is steeped in history and tradition.

The camp is incredibly luxurious and combines an African style with elegant sophistication. Spacious areas with both canvas and Elephant grass walls have been blended into the surrounding bush with flair in this idyllic riverside location. Relaxation in your villa could be next to your private pool as you watch the prolific wildlife in the river as you are shaded by old Winterthorn trees’.

The main guest area deck has been sculpted around the trees here ensuring continual shade and making each tree a feature in itself. Both indoor dining as well as communal dinners under the stars are magical experiences you will not forget easily.

Accommodation

Accommodation at Chinzombo comprises just six very private and spacious villas’. One of these is a family unit that has two bedrooms. Rooms can be made with twin or king size beds that are framed by walk in mosquito nets and bedside reading lights. An air conditioner keeps the room cool during the warmer months. A small plunge pool on the deck is great for a quick dip if need be.

Each en-suite bathroom has plenty of space with dual vanity basins, shower and a stand alone bath tub for some delicious soaking.

Amenities in both the bedroom and bathroom are incredible from soft fluffy towels and bathrobes to mini bars, coffee or tea facilities and complimentary WiFi in each room.
