Time + Tide Chinzombo

Situated on a sweeping curve of the Luangwa River, Time + Tide Chinzombo brings style and sophistication to the Luangwa Valley. This wildly luxurious camp retains its bush authenticity with grass and canvas walls and spacious living areas that melt into the exquisitely tranquil riverside setting. Colonial accents complement organic textures, creating an authentic feel that harkens back to the early days of exploration. With soaking tubs and feathertop beds, every villa is a haven for 
relaxation. Relax by your villa’s private pool, watching the river’s frequent wildlife visitors. Under the shade of ancient trees, listen to the bellows of hippos echoing across the river. 

Venture into one of the most game rich areas of the national park with our award winning guiding team on game drives and walking safaris. The South Luangwa is renowned for its world class predator action, with especially strong sightings of the elusive leopard. In the South Luangwa, expect large herds of elephants and rivers packed with hippos and crocs. Diverse habitat supports a wide variety of plains game and birdlife alongside the predators attracted to the abundance. After a day exploring the beautiful bush, unwind with an in-villa spa treatment. 




Chinzombo provides the perfect ending to walking or driving safaris combining Norman camps: Luwi, Nsolo, Kakuli and Mchenja. You won't even need to leave your room as the animals wander through camp and on the banks across the river, and your Villa is stocked with sundowner drinks!
