Chamilandu Bushcamp

South Luangwa, Zambia

Chamilandu Bushcamp

Chamilandu camp offers comfort, class and beauty in one of the Luangwa Valley's prime river locations.

The Bushcamp Company runs six specialist safari camps in one of Africa's most beautiful wilderness areas, the South Luangwa National Park, Zambia. It was here that the walking safari was first pioneered, and the emphasis at each of the bush camps is very much on experiencing the African wilderness up close and on foot.

Chamilandu Camp boasts a superb location in the heart of the Luangwa Valley, set between a series of 7 ox-box lagoons that yield a diversity of wildlife and attract abundant game. It is the smallest of the Luangwa bush camps, accommodating just six guests at a time. Game-viewing is generally excellent, both from the camp and on the walking trails. Day and night game drives are also offered, though the focus here is very much on game-viewing on foot.

Chamilandu Camp is open June to November. The Bushcamp Company's other camps in the South Luangwa include Bilimungwe, Chindeni, Kapamba, Zungulila, and Kuyenda.


There are just three stilted, en-suite "treehouses", all of which offer an elevated view over the waters of the Luangwa River and as far as the Nchindeni Hills, from both the bedroom and open-fronted bathroom. Each room opens onto a private verandah with a view of the river.

Two of Chamilandu's rooms are made up as twins and one as a king-size double.


Chamilandu's dining area and bar/lounge are set on raised wooden platforms beneath a canopy of ebony trees, right on the edge of the Luangwa River. The bush dinners are a treat!

Child Policy

Due to the remote nature of Chamilandu and the lack of facilities we would generally only recommend this camp to families travelling with older children.
