Chamilandu Bushcamp is a breathtaking camp on one of the South Luangwa National Park’s prime river locations, perfect for a bird’s-eye view of the wildlife that the river and its lagoons attract. There are just three stilted chalets at this exclusive camp, set on the riverbank beneath a soaring ebony grove. Each has its own raised veranda to loll on during the heat of the day, and an open-fronted en-suite bathroom with the same magnificent views over the tranquil waters. Two of the tree-houses are twins (2 queen-sized beds) and one is a double (king-sized bed).
With capacity for just six guests, this is the perfect camp for small groups. Guests can enjoy a sundowner from the comfort of the thatched bar and dining area, as they watch the wildlife do the same at the river. Walking safaris and game drives around Chamilandu explore the impressive range of habitats and animals in the area. Chamilandu’s 3 open-fronted reed and thatch chalets sit on stilts overlooking the Luangwa River. The black mosquito nets seem to disappear when you look through them, and there’s nothing quite like showering under the stars and the grove of ebony trees surrounding you. The hide overlooks a watering hole frequented by a wide variety of wildlife. Chamilandu is open from June to November.
