Profile

There's nothing quite like waking up at Chamilandu.

Early morning views don't get much better than the rippling waters of the Luangwa River, the gentle rise of the Chindeni Hills and a vast African sky - especially when you're lying in a four poster bed in a handsome stilted tree-house. You don't even need to leave your bed to see the wildlife - from your unique vantage point you can watch as animals roam across the landscape, or swing through the trees above your head.

There are just three stilted chalets at this exclusive camp, set on the riverbank beneath a soaring ebony grove. Enjoy a sundowner from the comfort of the thatched bar and dining area, as you watch the wildlife do the same at the river.

Exceptional game viewing and understated elegance make Chamilandu a place to remember.

Rooms

Chamilandu's three exquisite tree-houses perch right on the edge of the Luangwa River. 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 have twin beds (queen-sized beds) and one has a double (king-sized bed). With capacity for just six guests, this is the perfect camp for small groups. Chamilandu is open from June to November.

Activities

Walking safaris and game drives around Chamilandu explore the impressive range of habitats in the area. With no fewer than seven oxbow lagoons behind camp, there are always thirsty animals around seeking refreshment. Our hide looks out over one of these lagoons and is the perfect place to take lunch, tea or to while away an afternoon in a hammock to the soundtrack of bathing elephant.

It was an absolutely lovely honeymoon from start to finish with the Bushcamp Company. We were so glad that we found you guys and will definitely be singing your praises to family and friends.
Zambia does feel quite far away. We very much hope we can make it back. It was also very nice to meet and chat with you. We are certainly jealous of the work you and your colleagues get to do on a daily basis and we hope to live vicariously through you and the team via facebook and the monthly newsletter.
