"Fantastic stay at Chinzombo"
The food and the choices were very good, and my daughter and I were catered for specifically for our gluten-free needs.
Our game drives with our guide Brian were wonderful, he was so fun and friendly - and of course his experience, knowledge and ability to find the animals were great. When we wanted to see lions, he spent an entire morning tracking them down until he found the pride, and ditto with a herd of buffalo, and a leopard. Somehow he managed to deliver on everything we asked for.
Back at camp, we loved everyone on staff and in particular the managers Gloria and Faith. Their concern for our comfort and happiness was paramount in everything they did - they were beyond helpful, professional and flexible. But mostly we so enjoyed just hanging out and chatting and laughing with them. This really is a special place." See all these reviews: 9n in Zambia
The rooms are fabulous - massive, with large decks and their own plunge pools.
The game drives were very good with Phillip, in our own private vehicle for a family of four.
The staff were very friendly and on our second night we were the only guests in camp, so it felt like our own private lodge." See all these reviews: 7n in Zambia

"excellent until appalling american arrived!"
"True luxury at Chinzombo."
The chalets cater for every need. So much space, very comfortable beds, a bath, shower, varied seating inside and outside which has a pool. From the pool/ sun beds and cushioned seating outside you have grand views to the river where elephants and hippos are at play.
The food was excellent, a buffet for brunch and a menu provided to choose your three courses for dinner. Excellent wine to accompany dinner. The bar area has a touching tribute to Norman Carr.
Special thanks to Innocent for his excellent guiding and sharing the experience of the 14 lions trying to take a young elephant- long live Hercules! What an event!" See all these reviews: 12n in Zambia
The meals are generally served in the main area and the nice thing about this camp as you can sit separately from the other guests, which if you have just spent the last 7 days sharing tables with other guests is a welcome change.
the game viewing is also really good and saw lion kill a buffalo on our first day. Its slightly busier than Kafue or Lower Zambezi and so you will encounter more vehicles on the roads. i really recommend this camp as the last part of your trip." See all these reviews: 11n in Zambia
Guiding was excellent but our guides effectiveness was handicapped by the sheer number of other vehicles, especially at night. Traffic is something we normally avoid." See all these reviews: 7n in Zambia
