Opened in early June 2013, Chinzombo is a brand-new camp on an old site that spans an expansive curve of the Luangwa River, overlooking South Luangwa National Park. Designed by two of the safari industry's leading designer/architects, this camp is a 'first' for Zambia in terms of its sheer opulence and very clean, contemporary style. The best news is that this shiny new camp comes from Norman Carr Safaris, which is probably Zambia's oldest photographic safari company – with a track record of running first-class safari camps.
Our view of Chinzombo
However you look at it, Chinzombo is not a typical Zambian camp. It's a step more luxurious and more contemporary than any of the other camps in South Luangwa, and at least a little more costly, too. However, its food and guides are very good indeed – at the top end of Zambia's normally high standards – so if luxury is your priority, then it's perhaps worth the extra cost.
