About Chinzombo Camp
Wildly luxurious, designed by award winning architects Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens, this camp brings levels of comfort, style and elegance previously unseen to the Luangwa Valley. The camp has spacious living areas that melt into their surroundings of this beautiful property.
Gigantic, ancient shade trees offer peace and tranquillity for guests staying in any one of the six spacious villas, one of which is a suite with extra space such as double bathrooms, for families or small groups. Each of the six villas has its own private plunge pool, cooled sleeping areas, and massive bathroom with luxurious spa amenities.
The rooms are spacious, each containing two three-quarter or one king-sized bed. There is a wardrobe and shelving storage in the rooms, as well as an indoor and/or outdoor comfortable seating area and table. After dark, a member of staff will accompany you to and from your room, lighting the way and watching out for local wildlife.
Chinzombo Camp has earned a reputation for the quality and range of food so you can expect cuisine of the highest standards. The chefs have been trained in-house and they are more than happy to cater for any personal requests.
The camp is set within 60 acres of private land fronting the Luangwa River.

It is essential that guests take out their own personal travel insurance.
Chinzombo ask that if your food preferences could possibly be regarded as out of the ordinary then it would be easier if you informed the team in advance of your arrival. However simple choices of vegetarian, vegan or other fare should be discussed with your hosts on arrival.
For Green Season Safaris - from Nov to April: There is always a chance of the odd tropical downpour. Waterproof ponchos will be provided, however, we recommend you bring a waterproof bag for binoculars and camera kit. If you do bring a shower proof jacket, bear in mind that the weather is still warm so don't bring a heavy, thick jacket. It's a good idea to bring a change of shoes as well.
Travelling with children
Children of all ages are welcome.
Children under the age of 12 are not able to participate in the walking safaris because they are not allowed in the park on foot. There is no upper age limit and one doesn't need a high level of fitness.
Children receive a 50% discount if sharing with 2 adults. Minimum age by prior agreement.
