South Luangwa National Park
Chinzombo is now open!
Chinzombo Safari Camp is wildly luxurious, designed by award winning architects Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens. Chinzombo brings levels of comfort, style and elegance previously unseen to the Luangwa Valley in Zambia.
The old Chinzombo Camp was for years the green season base for Norman Carr way back in the 1970’s. We are thrilled to be giving this unique place a new lease of life. The camp is super-luxurious but retains its bush feel with grass and canvas walls and spacious living areas that melt into the exquisite surroundings of the beautiful, tranquil site.
Gigantic, ancient shade trees offer peace and tranquility for guests staying in any one of the six stunning villas, one of which is a family suite with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, perfect for families or small groups. Each villa will has its own private pool, cooled sleeping areas, and massive bathroom.
The camp is set within 60 acres of private land with Luangwa River frontage; the views from its riverside location which teems with wildlife, plus the private, direct access into one of the most game rich areas of the National Park all combine to make this a truly special place.
Throughout its history, NCS has always innovated. The first camps, the first walking safaris, the first community projects, the first bush camps, the first all Zambian expert guiding team, the list of firsts is a long one! We’re proud to continue that tradition and be the first to bring this level of design and luxury innovation to the Luangwa allowing us to create unique and exclusive adventures for the most discerning of guests.
Chinzombo Camp is the perfect place from which to explore the majestic wilds of the Luangwa in style, luxury and exclusivity – all year round.
