Time + Tide Chinzombo
A truly intimate safari experience unfolds at the luxurious Time + Tide Chinzombo camp.
An award-winning riverside lodge that gives you instant access to the South Luangwa National Park, where some of Zambia’s best wildlife spotting areas await.
Chinzombo Lodge consists of just six villas, a beautiful alfresco dining terrace and central fire pit surrounded by comfy sofas, making it one of Zambia’s most boutique safari lodges – and the experience is all the better for it.
As a result, your game drives and wildlife walks will be personally tailored here, and with so few fellow guests (therefore small groups) it’s even easier to fully appreciate the species you happen to spot along the way. And, being situated right on the banks of the Luangwa River, you’ll be treated to a more diverse range of excursions than most, with sunset boat tours and so-called ‘Jetset Safaris’ an absolute must, on top of their overnight camps under the stars, daytime and evening photo safaris and gentle, guided wildlife walks too.
Then, the One-bedroom and Family Villas at Time + Tide Chinzombo all come with a lounge, deep-soak bathtub and twin vanity sinks, plus a private plunge pool and veranda which is perfect for either a romantic meal delivered straight to your door or in-villa massage after a fun-filled day on safari. They are all standalone abodes too, meaning ultimate privacy and nothing but Luangwa National Park views for company. Another unique aspect to these individual villas – as with the rest of Time + Tide Chinzombo – is their décor and design, each being charmingly adorned to reflect the pioneering days of safari adventure: think antique travel chests, vintage-style lamps, retro ceiling fans and a generally nostalgic feel throughout. This, added to bespoke handmade furnishings and locally-inspired sculptures, decorative riverside pools and the fine-dining gastronomic journey enjoyed at the Time + Tide Chinzombo restaurant and bar, all add up to make this five-star, boutique safari lodge in South Luangwa really stand out.
