Set in one of the South Luangwa's prime river-side locations, Chamilandu Camp is an ideal base for a stay in this remote location. The elegant tree-house chalets at the camp offer superb views over the waters of the Luangwa River and Nchindeni Hills.

Begin your day with an early-morning walk in the wilderness, followed by an excellent brunch. Spend some time relaxing in a hammock, or visiting the river-side hide before enjoying a late afternoon game drive. On your drives and walks, you’ll visit the oxbow lagoons where elephants, hippos, and other wildlife can be seen as they come for a drink.

Traveller Reviews

  • The sightings at Chamilandu were great too. Elephants at our tent, leopards, giraffe, owls etc... It is hard to say I would change it since we had such a good experience.

  • Fantastic food, very welcoming staff, excellent accommodation - if we were to pick out a few exceptional things it would be the guides in both Chamilandu and Old Mondoro and the managers at Old Mondoro
