Located on a scenic bend in the Luangwa River and just a one-hour game drive away from Mfuwe Airport, Time + Tide Chinzombo is a luxury South Luangwa safari camp featuring award-winning design by architects Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens.
A member of the Time + Tide group, which also runs other safari camp properties in the national park such as Time + Tide Luwi and Time + Tide Kakuli, what sets Chinzombo apart is the combination of wild and luxury.
The five-star safari camp retains bush authenticity in the grass and canvas walls, panoramic river views and wildlife visitors to the camp grounds – whilst luxury touches include private plunge pools and gorgeous villa accommodation.
The one-bed, one-bath villas include soaking tubs with riverfront views, a large verandah with private plunge pools, spacious interiors and lounge areas, as well as fan and eco-cooled sleeping areas.
There is also one two-bed, two-bath family villa and Chinzombo welcomes children of all ages to stay.
Choose from day and night game drives, walking safaris and boating safaris (seasonal) to observe South Luangwa’s diverse wildlife in action, including the region’s speciality – the elusive leopard.
Back at camp, relax with in-villa spa treatments, a dip in your private pool or spend a romantic evening gazing at the Milky Way as part of a “Sleepout Under the Stars.”
Open all year round, Chinzombo is comprised of six gorgeous villas, including one two-bedroom and two-bathroom villa for families. Décor mixes colonial details with organic textures, such as the soft feather-top bedding. Beds can be in double or twin configurations, depending on your preferences. There are mains power and multi-adaptor plugs available in the villas, though WiFi and phone signal can be limited out in the bush! The main lodge is comprised of dining areas, a lounge, a bar, a riverfront deck (ideal for hippo-spotting) and a gorgeous campfire, which provides intimate moments out into the evening, listening to the sounds of the bush.
In-villa spa facilities, private plunge pools and a wide range of safari activities.
International fare whipped up by an award-winning culinary team, which celebrates local foods, including home-grown ingredients.
The Time + Tide group is committed to responsible initiatives and a member of ATTA (African Travel & Tourism Association), which aims to promote tourism to Africa in a responsible and sustainable way. Time + Tide also supports a number of community and conservation projects, such as Conservation South Luangwa and Conservation Lower Zambezi, as well as running the Time & Tide Foundation (established in 2015), which supports economic and education in Zambia and Madagascar. When Time + Tide first acquired the location for Chinzombo, funds were allocated to North Luangwa Conservation Programme, to help introduce black rhino back into the national park.
