  • Chindeni Bushcamp is an intimate safari camp situated on the banks of a lagoon with a spectacular backdrop of the Chindeni Hills, deep in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park. This luxurious tented camp has an air of exclusivity and a modern, minimalist design.
  • The camp provides four spacious and beautifully decorated canvas tents designed for maximum comfort. Built on platforms along the edge of lagoon, the tents come with a private veranda, the perfect spot to relax on as you listen to hippos chortling and elephants wallowing in the lagoon.
  • Expect to see good numbers of hippo, crocodiles, a huge variety of waterbirds and of course the animals which come down to drink every day. The camp is thoughtfully designed with a splendid split-level deck – the top for dining, with a large dining table and underneath for relaxing with comfortable chairs and a great view.
  • Start the day with a delicious breakfast around the campfire then head out on foot to explore the area. After a few hours relaxation time, experience the thrill of a game drive and as night falls, you may even spot the elusive leopard.
  • Day and night game drives and walks in the bush accompanied by a guide and scout. Bird-watching and wildlife viewing from your private deck. Focus on walking safaris, but also offers 4×4 night drives.

Chindeni Bush Camp South Luangwa

Bilimungwe Bushcamp is a warm and welcoming, beautiful camp which blends seamlessly with its surroundings and offers unrivalled wildlife viewings. Here, the traditions of the African bushcamp meet elegance and style to create a stunning camp that feels like it has grown organically out of the surrounding landscape. Set beneath a huge mahogany tree, the heart of Bilimungwe is the cool, shady lounge area that looks out over one of the camps three waterholes. Settle down in a cosy armchair with a sundowner and relax as you watch an enviable display of spectacular birds and animals that clearly feel as comfortable here as you do. With the open waters of the Luangwa River also on your doorstep and a nearby plain where leopard prowl, it’s clear that this is a nature-lovers paradise, and with Manda Chisanga – Bilimungwe’s award-winning resident guide – to lead you, you could not be in better hands.

Chindeni Bush Camp features four luxury and spacious en-suite tents. Two of the tents have a king size bed and two have twin queen size beds. The rooms have stripped wooden floor, comfortable four poster beds, a cosy sitting room and vaulted canvas ceilings. The private verandas offer wonderful views of the wildlife on the lagoon whilst you sway in your hammock.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. Especially when you can see so much wildlife just by stepping onto your own private deck jutting out over the lagoon. 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.

Canvas Tents

Raised on a wooden decking, Chindeni’s 4 en-suite magnificent canvas tents have private decks from which one can view the resident big game often in attendance, or simply enjoy the extensive birdlife and serenity of the camp and lagoon. The tents are the most spacious in the Luangwa, each with two queen-sized beds or one king bed, shower, toilet and double vanities. The dining area is on stilts above the oxbow lagoon with an adjoining lounge area for relaxing in the open air. Guests have been known to stay in camp during hot October days and see more from the deck than on a drive!.

Relax with a drink in the central lounge and dining area – a glorious expanse of varnished decking arranged on several levels around the surrounding ebony trees. Enjoy the same spectacular view of the serene lagoon and its hippo inhabitants.
