A sublime tented camp on the edge of an oxbow lagoon with the N'Chindeni Hills providing a truly breath-taking backdrop.


There’s something about sleeping under canvas that ignites a sense of adventure in everyone.

At Chindeni, combine that thrill with style and comfort in one of the four spacious tents, with their wooden floors, four-poster beds and impressive views over the lagoon from the private verandas. The main area is a glorious expanse of decking arranged on several levels around the surrounding ebony trees, boasting, of course, the same spectacular view of the lagoon and its four-legged inhabitants.


Whether you are in the mood for intrepid exploration or more sedentary wildlife viewing, Chindeni will deliver. Set out on superb walking safaris, game drives, night drives and scenic sundowner trips in the surrounding area, or simply settle yourself in a deckchair at camp, and watch the abundance of game that is drawn to the lagoon.

Where the walking safari is King

The walking safari was born in the South Luangwa, so it’s only fitting that many of your outings will be on foot with the very finest guides.

An iconic tradition

As the sun sinks below the horizon, there is nothing better than finding a spectacular spot in the heart of the bush for an ice-cold drink and something to nibble on.

Exceptional wildlife-viewing

Explore the rich diversity and incredible wildlife of the South Luangwa on a game drive. On four wheels, you’ll cover as much of the region as possible and maximise your game-viewing.

Heighten your senses

At night, a whole new cast of characters fills the landscape of the South Luangwa. With the help of a spotlight, take to the road and see what you can find…
