The Detail

Situated along a scenic bend of the Luangwa River, Time and Tide Chinzombo combines elegance and sophistication in the heart of the Luangwa Valley. While exuding luxury, the camp maintains an authentic bush feel with its grass and canvas walls, blending seamlessly into the tranquil riverside surroundings.


Chinzombo redefines luxury in the Luangwa Valley with a stylish, comfortable, and elegant design. The camp features six luxurious villas, including a family-specific two-bedroom villa, each equipped with a private pool, air-cooled sleeping areas, expansive bathrooms, and Wi-Fi. The main lodge complements these accommodations with dining areas, a lounge, a bar, a campfire area, and a riverfront deck.

The luxury tents offer indulgent soaking tubs with views of the riverfront, large verandahs with private pools, and spacious interiors that include a lounge area. Guests can choose between double or twin-bed setups. The tents are equipped with mains power, multi-adaptor plugs, limited Wi-Fi, and phone signal availability.

The Family Villa features two bedrooms and two bathrooms. It offers a soaking tub with views of the riverfront and a large verandah complete with a private pool. The villa's spacious interiors include a comfortable lounge area and can be configured with either double or twin beds. Modern amenities in the villa include mains power and multi-adaptor plugs, though wifi and phone signals are limited.


Walking Safaris

Walking safaris are where all your senses are heightened and you can see, hear, smell and feel the bush.

Game Drives

Night drives typically begin as an extension of the afternoon game drive or walking safari. As dusk falls, you'll stop to watch the sunset before setting off to discover the nocturnal wildlife. This is the prime time to encounter genets, civets, elephant shrews, porcupines, and fierce honey badgers.

Large predators, except wild dogs, are also more active after dark, enhancing your chances of thrilling sightings. Birdwatching at night is equally rewarding, with an abundance of nightjars, owls, dikkops, bat hawks, and coursers.

Star Gazing

The African night sky, free from light pollution, offers a breathtaking backdrop. The brilliance of the Milky Way and constellations like the Southern Cross, Orion, and Scorpio add to the unforgettable experience. The distant calls of lions, cicadas, and tree frogs under the crescent moon create lasting memories of the African wilderness.
