Profile

In an enviable location on the edge of a lagoon where hippo chortle and elephant wallow, stands Chindeni - undoubtedly one of the most beautiful tented camps in the South Luangwa.

There's something about sleeping under canvas that ignites a sense of adventure in everyone. At Chindeni you can combine that thrill with style and comfort in one of its four opulent tents. Gaze out from your private veranda onto the lagoon which attracts birds and animals from miles around. Or settle back with a gin-and-tonic in the central lounge and dining area - a glorious expanse of varnished decking arranged on several levels around the surrounding ebony trees, boasting, of course, the same spectacular view of the serene lagoon and its inhabitants.

Rooms

With stripped wooden floors, four-poster beds, cosy sitting rooms, en suite bathrooms and vaulted canvas ceilings, Chindeni's spacious tents are so inviting you could be forgiven for never wanting to leave your room. Especially when you can see so much wildlife just by stepping onto your own private deck jutting out over the lagoon. Two of the tents have twin beds (queen-sized beds), while the other two each have a king bed. Chindeni is open from May to December.

Activities

Whether you are in the mood for intrepid exploration or perhaps some more sedentary wildlife viewing, Chindeni will deliver. Avid game viewers and birdwatchers can set out on superb walking safaris, game drives, night drives and scenic sundowner trips in the surrounding area. Or you can just park yourself in a deckchair at camp and watch the abundance of game that is drawn to the lagoon.

Fantastic location, food, staff and guide. Best experience of our lives. Amazing people and special memories. Thank you so much!

Once more the Tregoning family had a most enjoyable stay at the Bushcamp Company, South Luangwa - the new experience of Bilimungwe and Chindeni Bushcamps as well as Mfuwe Lodge which always has the added advantage of a great variety of game viewing. Our children were most impressed. The guides Manda, Peter and Kelvin were excellent. Kelvin became part of our family in a very short time. Once more your company lived up its name of good hospitality, excellent food, friendly staff and very professional guides who educated us all along. Definitely an unforgettable experience overall.

I think you might have gathered that we had an absolutely amazing time with you – we came away on such a high.
We will dream of African dawn chorus and sunrise while we are chomping on toast in the frosty mornings.
Please thank everyone again for us for making us feel like VIP guests.
