Chamilandu Bushcamp

Open June-November, Chamilandu is a breathtaking camp on one of the South Luangwa’s prime river locations, perfect for a bird’s-eye view of the wildlife that the river and its lagoons attract. There are just three stilted chalets at this exclusive camp, set on the riverbank beneath a soaring ebony grove. Each has its own raised veranda to loll on during the heat of the day, and an open-fronted en-suite bathroom with the same magnificent views over the tranquil waters. Two of the tree-houses are twins (2 queen-sized beds) and one is a double (king-sized bed). With capacity for just six guests, this is the perfect camp for small groups. Guests can enjoy a sundowner from the comfort of the thatched bar and dining area, as they watch the wildlife do the same at the river. Walking safaris and game drives around Chamilandu explore the impressive range of habitats and animals in the area.

Chamilandu's 3 open-fronted reed and thatch chalets sit on stilts overlooking the Luangwa River.  The black mosquito nets seem to disappear when you look through them, and there's nothing quite like showering under the stars and the grove of ebony trees surrounding you.  The hide overlooks a watering hole frequented by a wide variety of wildlife.

House Chalets
Traditional décor adorns the 2-meter high tree house chalets (only 3 chalets in camp). The tasteful blend of wrought iron and brass offsets the thatch and wood that welcome you to recline and relax. Black mosquito netting allows guests to retain an uninterrupted view of the Luangwa River and Chindeni Hills at night under the moonlight and stars above. Open to a 180° vista, each tree house provides an exciting frame of the surrounding Luangwa Valley. The four-poster beds enjoy a bird’s eye view over the Luangwa River and the abundant wildlife that has made the valley famous. With the magnificent Chindeni Hills as the backdrop for your view, Chamilandu affords you the majesty of Africa in all its forms. Outdoor bathrooms adjoin each chalet with a large shower and double vanities under the open sky.

With no fewer than seven oxbow lagoons behind camp, there are always thirsty animals around seeking refreshment. Our hide looks out over one of these lagoons and is the perfect place to take lunch, tea, or to while away an afternoon in a hammock to the soundtrack of a bathing elephant.
