Chamilandu Bushcamp: picture gallery


Chamilandu stands beside the Luangwa River, and has three raised chalets.
They have a short set of stairs to climb up...
...and have reed walls on three sides, with the front completely open to give views of the river.
The main area is a large thatched building also overlooking the river...
…which is enclosed by a low reed wall, and built around a tree.
There are plenty of places to relax, like hanging wicker chairs and comfy armchairs.
Breakfast is served as a buffet, and usually eaten around the campfire…
…lunch is also a buffet…
...eaten as a group at a dining table in the main are.
Each chalet has four-poster beds draped in mosquito netting...
There's also plenty of comfy seating around camp, where you can look for wildlife in the riverbed.
... the bed covers and cushions are stylish and African.
You will have an en-suite bathroom with twin sinks...
… and a hot open air shower.
You can sometimes see big cats close to camp…
…and plenty of plains game.
Chamilandu has furniture carved out of logs, giving it a rustic feel.
It's a great spot to relax by the river and watch wildlife come to drink on the other side.
