Chindeni Bush Camp, South Luangwa National Park

The Chindeni Hills provide the magnificent backdrop to this beautiful tented camp, which you’ll find on the edge of an oxbow lagoon in the southern South Luangwa.

At Chindeni, the thrill of sleeping under canvas is combined with style, comfort and outstanding guiding. Its four tented chalets sleep just a handful of guests, and feel like secluded treehouses nestled beneath a group of large ebonies. You’ll be able to watch elephants and hippo bathe by sunset from your private veranda, and dine on superb food in the shaded dining area and adjoining lounge. 

Whether you’re feeling intrepid or take a more leisurely approach to game viewing, Chindeni has activities to suit every type of safari-goer. The South Luangwa is famed for its diversity of wildlife, and you’ll experience this first-hand on superb walking safaris, morning game drives and night drives with the finest guides. Alternatively, get comfortable in a deckchair and watch as the resident wildlife come to drink from the lagoon in front of camp.
