About Chindeni Bushcamp
Unquestionably one of the most beautiful camps in the South Luangwa National Park, this collection of tented huts stands at the edge of Chayumba lagoon, where you can often spot hippo and elephant washing and drinking from the water. You canât help but feel a thrill of adventure sleeping under a canvas cover, listening to the nocturnal animal kingdom as you wind down after a long day of safari.
The central lounge and dining area looks over the lagoon, surrounded by vast ebony trees, and is home to a fully stocked bar. Each tent is kitted out with wooden floors, four-poster beds and en suite bathrooms so thereâs no need to compromise comfort for camping. Chindeni Bushcamp is the perfect spot to kick back and relax on your private veranda where the animal spotting is never-ending, or chuck on your walking boots and take a guided tour through the bush.
Located in the remote, southern part of the South Luangwa National Park, Zambia. A tranquil tented camp on the edge of a oxbow lagoon with the Chindeni Hills providing an amazing backdrop.

Most nationals can obtain their visa at the point of entry into Zambia. Current charges are $50 for tourists of most nationalities, including US, Canadian, British and most European countries. If you are not one of the above please ask about visas before booking.
All visitors should be medically insured. We recommend that visitors to Zambia take malaria prophylactics. Tetanus, polio, typhoid and the hepatitis vaccinations are recommended. It is advisable to know your blood group type in case of an emergency. Please do ask for up to date health advice in your home country
We highly recommend full Trip Cancellation Insurance - we do need to charge cancellation fees as stipulated. Robin Pope Safaris bears no responsibility for any delays, cancellation of flights or change of itinerary and retains the right to alter or cancel an activity with just reason.
Please be sensitive when photographing local people and their villages. Ask the guide or the villagers first. Be careful when photographing public buildings and persons in uniform - again, ask first.
Travelling with children
Children of 12 years and older are welcome
As children under 12 years of age are not allowed to go on walking safaris in the Park, families travelling with children aged 11 years and below will need to reserve the entire camp on a private basis and also hire a Private Guide & Vehicle for the duration of their stay. This enables the adults to go on walking safaris while the younger children can go on game drives with the guide in the extra vehicle.
