Chindeni: the home of the walking safari

Awake to throngs of birdlife flitting between lagoon reeds and ebony trees from the comfort of your luxurious tent at Chindeni Bushcamp. Occupying prime positioning in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park, the camp overlooks a wildlife-dotted oxbow lagoon and the distant Chindeni hills. The park’s lagoons and weaving river teem with wildlife, leading many experts to laud the park as one of the country’s greatest wildlife sanctuaries. 

Boasting four of the Big 5, South Luangwa’s birding population is unparalleled. With over 400 of Zambia’s 732 bird species within its borders, twitchers will be delighted to venture out on birdwatching expeditions. The famous walking safari, now found in game parks and reserves from Kenya to South Africa, originated in the park. 

With only four elegant tents, a stay at Chindeni is an undeniably intimate and tailored experience. Furnished with four-poster beds, en-suite bathrooms, sitting rooms, and private verandahs overlooking the lagoon, guests will be tempted to not leave their tent at all. The main lounge and dining area is spread across multi-level decks framed by ebony trees and proffering magnificent views of the lagoon and mountains.
