Luangwa National Park, Zambia
Chindeni Bushcamp is a luxury 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. Refurbished in 2010, this tented camp has an air of exclusivity and a modern, minimalist design. It is considered one of the most luxurious and stylish camps in South Luangwa.
Offering superb facilities, sublime accommodation and mouthwatering cuisine, Chindeni will appeal to those seeking an intimate and serene safari experience in an idyllic location.
The camp provides just four very spacious and beautifully decorated canvas tents designed for maximum comfort. Built on platforms along the edge of lagoon, the tents come with a private verandah, the perfect spot to relax on as you listen to hippos chortling and elephants wallowing in the lagoon.
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.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Luangwa Valley into a greater Zambia holiday. Take a look at Two Rivers Safari as an example of a bespoke itinerary that we can create for you.
