Reviewed October 1, 2011

My husband and I shared 3 fantastic days here - everything was perfect and cannot be faulted . the rooms were luxurious with fabulous views over the water which was alive with birds , crocs and other wildlife so there was always something to watch from our verandah.. the hospitality was wonderful - fantastic food and camp staff always helpful and attentive. Small camp which was lovely as dinners small and interesting groups and one night we were the only guests so we had a very romantic dinner set up for us on our verandah - lovely ! We saw fantastic wildlife and had some good interesting walks .. we loved this camp so much we are already planning a return visit - fabulous - cannot be faulted !

Room Tip: Our room was lovely and all the rooms looked similarly lovely - as the rooms are on stilts there are...

Chamilandu was the last of four safari camps we visited in Botswana and Zambia and was absolutely the best! The stunning setting, beautiful cabin open to the environment and unique wildlife hide and friendly staff made this camp so very special. The game drives and foot safari with expert guides ensured we saw an amazing range of wild life and birds. But the event that made this experience so unforgetable for us was the birthday cake suprise created by the staff. I won't give any secrets away and spoil the suprise for other guests but say only that it was quintessentially African and unlike any you will have experenced or likely to expereince anywhere else - thank you Chamilandu!!

We stayed 3 nights at Chamilandu and loved it. The view from our bed/terrace/shower was stunning. The food was surprisingly really good. And the staff were fab. It was both our birthdays when we were at Chamilandu and the staff went out of their way to make it truly memorable (their voices when they sung happy birthday were very beautiful). The guide Gilbert's knowledge was endless and he used his experience to find great wildlife (we even saw a leopard kill on our last night!) and perfect spots for sundowners. Zillah, the hostess, was warm and welcoming.

Naldi their booking agent was also very helpful and patient with our endless questions when we were planning our trip

I'd recommend it without a doubt!!!

Chamilandu is situated on the banks of the Luangwa river with a stunning view of the Chindeni hills. Beautifully decorated rooms on stilts. The real highlight of our stay in this camp was the hide where we were able to sit for hours and watch elephants, kudu, warthogs and baboons. Delicious pizzas cooked in the wood fired pizza oven by George. The best camp I visited in Zambia.

Chamilandu consists of 3 chalets on stilts on the banks of the Luangwa river. The views from the rooms are wonderful. Bear in mind that there are no doors to the chalets- at night, screens can be lowered to keep out the wind. Also, the bathroom area did not have a roof. Since our chalet was under a tree frequented by baboons, on occasion we had rather nasty surprises on the bathroom floor!
The game viewing was great. We went to South Luangwa since it is reknowned for it's high concentration of leopard and we were not disappointed. We had wonderful sightings of this elusive animal.

Chamilandu Bushcamp provided us with the best possible "way in" to African Wildlife and Nature by providing high quality quidance on our daily walking safari tours- we were simply thrilled with the interest and knowhow shared by the guides and scouts. In addition- the Camp is set in a stunning landscape and was wonderfully relaxing and calm after our walks., the evenings were great - we felt so warmly welcomed by the host and always had lots to talk about. - Anyone, who is looking for a truly special experience- is in for a treat!

We stayed 3 nights in this wonderful bushcamp at the Luangwa river banks. Location is very scenic with beautiful views out of the deck and the open rooms. But as always people make the difference and this is a wonderful team (Oli, Gilbert and all others). Excellent morning walks and game drives including sundowners! We have seen many places in Africa so far, but this is a special one we will remember for ever.

Room Tip: There are only 3 challets in total camp!
