South Luangwa National Park, Zambia
Chinzombo
  • Situated in a secluded spot of South Luangwa, Chinzombo is the ultimate in ultra-chic camps in Zambia – stylish yet artfully opulent. 

  • With just six spacious and stunning villas, one designed to accommodate a family, and each with its own private plunge pool this camp is intimate and delightfully luxurious. 

  • Offering direct and private access into one of the best game-rich areas in the valley you can opt for walking or driving safaris through into the night to find the fascinating nocturnal habitants of the area.  

  • Named after the Chinzombo fruit, the camp has been cleverly designed to blend in with its surroundings and allow you to truly relax between game drives whether that be in your private plunge pool, treating yourself to some yoga and spa treatments or a just lying back on your shady deck, binoculars in hand.


Chinzombo, named after the chinzombo fruit - was once a simple, rustic camp on the banks of the Luangwa, before undergoing a total refit to become one of the most luxurious options in the Valley. Each of the six villas are vast and airy, and cleverly designed to blend in with the surroundings while pushing the boundaries of accommodation in Zambia. Each villa has its own separate living area, a private plunge pool and a cooled sleeping area, along with an enormous bathroom and a sweeping deck. 

Norman Carr, the founder of Norman Carr Safaris, originally used the Chinzombo site as a base during the Emerald Season, and the area is full of history and memories. The site is peaceful and secluded, on a large and pristine area of land almost entirely cut off by the meandering Luangwa River, meaning that Chinzombo, despite being open all year round, is practically an island.

The camp is located within easy reach of the best game viewing in the Valley. Guests can choose to walk or drive - we recommend walking in the mornings when the temperature is cool and the animals are more active, and driving in the afternoons so you can extend through to a night drive and find the nocturnal animals.
