The beautiful Chindeni hills of Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park provide both the backdrop and the name for Chindeni Camp.
A small and intimate camp, accommodations consist of just four canvas tents set on wooden decks. These spacious tents come with either two queen-sized beds or one king bed and a small sitting area. An en suite bathroom features double vanities, a shower, and a flush toilet. A shaded veranda is outfitted with comfy loungers making it the ideal spot to watch the animals and extensive bird life around the camp.
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 elephant wade through the marshes and hippos play in the Luangwa River. There are about 400 bird species recorded in the Park.
