A small, intimate camp on the banks of the Luangwa River, Chamilandu Bush Camp lets adults fulfill their tree-house dreams.
Accommodations at the camp consist of only three stilted tree houses that can house up to six guests making it ideal for small groups. There are two twin chalets and one double chalet available. The chalets are open-fronted so guests can enjoy magnificent views of the river from their four-poster bed. The en suite bathrooms come with twin showers, twin vanities, and flush toilets. A private wooden deck in front of the bedroom is fitted with comfortable chairs and lies under the shade of giant ebony trees making it the perfect spot to relax and watch the wildlife wander by.
The camp is located in South Luangwa National Park, a world-famous wildlife haven, centered around the Luangwa River. Its historic virility stems from its topography. The Muchinga Escarpment forms the park’s western and northwestern boundaries, sloping steeply down to the river from the west side. The river valley, continued to the west by the Lunsemfwa River valley, forms a natural barrier, and to this day there are no man-made roads spanning the valley. The Park enjoys a dense animal population including Impalas, pukus, waterbucks, giraffes, and buffaloes grazing on the plains. A high number of leopards stalk the dense woodlands, while herds of elephants wade through the marshes and hippos play in the Luangwa River. There are about 400 bird species recorded in the Park.
