Chindeni has a unique feel and one of the most stunning locations in the South Luangwa, nestled on the apex of a permanent oxbow lagoon in the shadow of the magnificent Chindeni Hills. Watching the sunrise over the hills in the morning before heading out on a walking safari is a wonderful way to start the day.
Raised on wooden decking, Chindeni's four en suite tents have been recently upgraded to provide extra space and luxury facilities. Each has its own private raised veranda with hammocks, ideal platforms from which to view the resident big game or simply enjoy the serenity of the lagoon under the shade of the trees. The tents are equipped with queen sized beds, hot and cold running water, shower, toilet, double vanities and tongue and groove polished wooden flooring. It is a really comfortable and beautifully designed camp.
The open dining/lounge and bar area is shaded by ebony trees and again raised up to take advantage of the outstanding view. From the bar there are steps down to the lagoon side, where guests can enjoy an open-air dining or pre-dinner drink experience next to the still waters of the lagoon.
Chindeni is only a six-kilometre walk from one of its sister camps, Bilimungwe, so you can enjoy an early morning walk between the two, with a vehicle taking on your luggage if you are transferring from one camp to the next. In addition to walks, it is also possible to enjoy day and night game drives.
