The wildly luxurious Chinzombo Camp, set within 60 acres of private land, is located on the picturesque sweeping bend of the Luangwa river. There are 6 large and spacious luxury villas that have been cleverly adapted into the surroundings, featuring a separate living area, a private plunge pool, a large bathroom and a cool private area for siestas. The camp features modern comforts such as WIFI access, spa facilities with a refreshing plunge pool and a designated yoga area, but still feels in touch with the African surroundings. Daily safaris mean you can absorb the superb bush life of one of the finest sanctuaries in the world that will allow you to get up close to the bustling wildlife. The best way to experience the area is by participating in the famous 'walking safari' to seek the park's 60 different animal species and a range of over 400 bird...
Kakuli is a seasonal camp on the confluence of the Luwi and Luangwa rivers. It has five traditional walk-in safari tents each with en-suite bathrooms made from natural materials and views up and down this hippo-packed stretch of river. The bar and dining chitenje is constructed of reed and thatch forming the centre point of camp. This building, along with each of the tents, is on an elevated stretch of riverbank. This area of the park is renowned for its great game viewing and guests will usually split their time between walking and driving.
Mchenja, meaning "the ebony tree", is set beneath a magnificent grove of these trees on the banks of the Luangwa river. The camp comprises five stylishly designed tents each under its own thatched roof, and each with private en-suite shower and inside bath. There is a small pool alongside the bar, allowing guests to seek cool refuge during the heat of the day. Mchenja is one of four bushcamps owned and managed by Norman Carr Safaris and is in an excellent location for walking...
