SOUTH LUANGWA NATIONAL PARK

Bush camp company, Chamilandu Lodge 

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. Chamilandu is open from June to November.

KAFUE NATIONAL PARK

Shumba Camp

Shumba Camp is located in the centre of the Busanga Plains, home to hundreds of red lechwe, ubiquitous puku, stately roan and the diminutive oribi. Lichtenstein’s hartebeest, herds of wildebeest, zebra and buffalo make for a full set of antelope all of which move onto the Plains as the dry season progresses. This wealth of game is a big attraction for predators, including wild dog, cheetah and prides of lion.

Shumba Camp comprises six spacious luxury safari tents on raised platforms with spectacular views of the surrounding plains. The rooms are large, en-suite with both indoor and outdoor showers. The dining and bar area is elevated so as to take in this vista and each morning’s sunrise; dinner takes place either here or in the cosy boma where guests can also enjoy elements of local Zambian culture. Many meals are prepared and cooked on the fire in front of the guests enhancing the safari experience. A maximum of 12 guests can be accommodated at any one time and great emphasis has been placed on the “guided” experience – being led by qualified, enthusiastic people with in-depth knowledge of the area and its wildlife. Guests have the option of game drives in and around the Plains and night drives provide the added excitement of the nocturnal wonders of the area.

Shumba Camp is perfectly situated to take advantage of the plains game and predator concentrations of the Busanga Plains, being situated as it is within close proximity to permanent water and having easy access to a mix of seasonal and permanent floodplains. Shumba is named after a favourite species in the area – prides of lion sometimes up to 20 strong! Viewing of species like puku, lechwe and hippo is possible for much of the day from the comfort of your tent or the main deck, while the camp’s fig trees ensure both shade and constant bird activity in the canopy above.
