South Luangwa National Park, Zambia
Designed by award winning architects Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens, Chinzombo Camp’s minimal yet luxurious style makes this one of our trendiest lodges in South Luangwa National Park. With only six villas nestled next to the river, this lodge offers a desirably secluded ambience.
The six villas, including one two-bedroom family unit, are incredibly spacious, the open front walls creating a sense of unity with the unspoilt wilderness outside. The décor subtly blends modern furnishings with wonderful natural materials, with the lodge priding itself on the locally produced leather, reedwork and handmade crockery used to create a traditional safari feel. All of the villas have a large lounge area and opulent bathroom, plus an expansive veranda that juts out into the landscape and is adorned with an indulgent plunge pool.
Walk along the wooden pathways and you’ll find the open-air lounge area, again opting for a contemporary feel, yet still using wonderful natural materials. From here you’ll find the decadent viewing deck, home to two scenic pools and a small campfire area for leisurely evenings under the stars. The best part of the main area is its direct and private access to South Luangwa National Park, making game drives and walking safaris a cinch with a short boat ride across the river.
With only sustainably sourced or recycled construction materials used to create it, it’s quite clear that Chinzombo Camp has a deep love for its surrounding’s natural beauty – and with so many incredible predator sightings nearby, it’s easy to see why.
