Chinzombo Camp, Zambia

Representing a whole new league of design, style and elegant luxury hitherto unavailable in Zambia, Chinzombo is aimed at a new class of ultra discerning traveller - it is a real winner. Combining sophisticated contemporary design with indigenous building methods and materials, the individual villas appear to float and melt into the surrounding bush. With outstanding, award-winning guiding and fantastic game viewing, this place is very special.

Chinzombo - The Details

Set within 60 acres of game-rich wilderness on the banks of the Luangwa River, Chinzombo is located on the site of Norman Carr's original green season base way back in the 1970’s. It combines Norman Carr's first class safari heritage with the very best in cutting-edge style and luxury. With direct private access to the Luangwa River, there is a short boat crossing into the South Luangwa National Park; the game viewing is outstanding being in the main Mfuwe area and Norman Carr Safaris have won the best guiding team in the whole of Africa, so guests are in for a treat.

The six individual villas, all nestled within the tranquil shade of ancient gigantic msikzi trees, are set out along a bend in the Luangwa River with fantastic, sweeping views towards the river. Each villa is huge, with an enormous bedroom, luxurious bathroom, wifi and its own plunge pool set on a spacious deck. One villa has two bedrooms and two bathrooms accommodating up to five people, perfect for families or small groups.

The design of the villas combines a sophisticated contemporary steel structure with indigenous Zambian building methods and sustainably-sourced, recycled and natural materials. The villas are simple and minimal in style with the focus being outwards over the river and wildlife, with open fronted rooms during the day.

Only one hour from Mfuwe airport, Chinzombo is open all year round. Its tag line is 'wildly luxurious' - and we have to agree.

Chinzombo Camp - Reviews

The Norman Carr Chinzombo camp were absolutely fantastic, the guiding especially. The boat trips across the river to get to the game vehicles is also a plus. The rooms are massive with absolutely stunning views over the river.
