A stunningly beautiful tented camp in the South Luangwa, Chindeni Bush Camp has an enviable location on the edge of a lagoon where hippo and elephant wallow. Sleeping under canvas ignites a sense of adventure and at Chindeni you can combine that thrill with style and comfort in one of its four opulent tents.
The tents have stripped wooden floors, four-poster beds, cosy sitting rooms, en suite bathrooms and vaulted canvas ceilings. Each has a private deck jutting out over the lagoon from which you can see an abundance of wildlife without leaving your room! Two of the tents have twin beds (queen-sized beds) and two have doubles (king-sized bed).
Settle back with a gin and tonic in the central lounge and dining area - an expanse of varnished decking around the surrounding ebony trees, boasting spectacular views of the serene lagoon and its inhabitants. Chindeni is open from May to December. The camp is powered by solar power and limited charging facilities are available.
