A trip to Zambia is a step back into the traditional wild safaris of a bygone era. The South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi National Parks are both legendary safari destinations worthy of their reputation of being the “real Africa”.
This safari is designed to showcase Zambia’s astounding diversity of wildlife in a variety of ways. Expect phenomenal game viewing on foot, vehicle and by boat. Small intimate bush camps in untouched wilderness areas offer some of the finest bush walking opportunities in Africa.
We have selected our camps meticulously, and each has its own special character and mode of game viewing. You’ll encounter a remarkable diversity of wildlife across magnificent landscapes in locations which have been personally chosen for their remote setting.

Road transfer to Chindeni Bushcamp
Chindeni Bushcamp, South Luangwa National Park – 3 nights
Chindeni Bushcamp is located in the remote southern part of the South Luangwa National Park on the edge of a permanent lagoon, with a breath-taking backdrop of the Chindeni Hills. Four comfortable and spacious canvas tents with rustic wooden floors, romantic four-poster beds, a cosy lounge area and en-suite bathroom provide all the necessary comforts, with a wonderful sense of being completely immersed in the wilderness.
There’s something about sleeping under canvas that ignites a sense of adventure in everyone. At Chindeni, the thrill of the wild blends with the stylish comfort of the tents. Settle back with a gin and tonic on your private deck overlooking the lagoon, or relax on one of the main decks under the ebony trees and watch the endless stream of wildlife coming down to drink. Game viewing is excellent, with superb walking opportunities, day and night drives, and scenic sundowners.

Thanks so much for the gorgeous e-Book – special thanks to you, Lee, for taking shots of us at our gorilla viewings. I still find it hard to believe that I was actually there.
