Situated deep within the game-rich South Luangwa, Chindeni is a secluded bush camp offering an authentic safari experience on the meandering Luangwa River and undoubtedly one of the most beautiful tented camps in the South Luangwa. The camp offers a tranquil atmosphere with spacious thatch-roofed buildings, shaded by a grove of ancient ebony trees. Built high on stilts, the wooden viewing deck offers impressive views of the lagoon where hippo, puku and other wildlife – like large herds of elephant – can be regularly seen.
Chindeni is deeply involved in the broader South Luangwa community and provides assistance to local schools and feeding schemes, helps plant trees and sink boreholes for fresh, safe water, as well as being actively committed to the area’s successful conservation projects.
Chindeni is open from May to December. South Luangwa National Park is the highlight of eastern Zambia. The impressive park covers an area of about 9050 square kilometres of the Luangwa Valley floor. With its western and northwestern edge bounded by the Muchinga Escarpment and the southern borderline with the meandering Luangwa River, there’s no shortage of dramatic and fascinating topography in this stunning game-rich park.
