There's nothing quite like waking up at Chamilandu Bushcamp. As you awaken experience the best early morning views of the Luangwa River coupled with the rolling Chindeni Hills and a vast African sky. All of this can be viewed from your four-poster bed in a handsome stilted treehouse. Essentially, you do not even have to leave your bed to witness Zambian wildlife at its best. Each treehouse offers a unique vantage point from which you can watch animals roam across the landscape, or swing through the trees.
Exclusive and intimate, Chamilandu boasts three stilted tree houses, set on the riverbank beneath a soaring ebony grove. Enjoy a sundowner from the comfort of the thatched bar and dining area, as you watch the wildlife do the same at the river. Exceptional game viewing and understated elegance awaits, making Chamilandu a unique destination.
Chamilandu's three exquisite tree-houses are perched along the edge of the Luangwa River. Each offers a raised veranda to loll on during the heat of the day, and an open-fronted en-suite bathroom with the same magnificent views over the tranquil waters. With a capacity for just six guests, this is the perfect camp for small groups. Chamilandu is open from June to November.
Walking safaris and game drives around Chamilandu explore the impressive range of habitats in the area. There are only about seven oxbow lagoons behind the camp, therefore there are always thirsty animals around seeking refreshment. The animal hide looks out over one of the lagoons and is the perfect place to take lunch, tea or to relax away an afternoon in a hammock to the soundtrack of a bathing elephant.
South Luangwa National Park is the highlight of eastern Zambia. Known to locals as simply 'the South Park,' it was initially founded as the Luangwa Game Park in 1904, and converted to one of three game reserves in 1938. The impressive park covers an area of about 9050 square kilometres of the Luangwa Valley floor and lies anywhere from 500 meters to 800 meters above sea level. With its western and northwestern edge bounded by the Muchinga Escarpment and the southern border line with the meandering Luangwa River, there's no shortage of dramatic and fascinating topography in this stunning game-rich park.
