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.

Still wholly wild and devoid of crowds, South Luangwa National Park is home to the original walking safari. This is the perfect destination for modern day explorers, adventurous and active travellers. With an award-winning guiding team, you can explore as you please, discovering the diverse tapestry of habitats of the South Luangwa.

The region 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. Abundant plains game and endangered species, such as wild dogs.

After a day exploring the beautiful bush, unwind with an in-villa spa treatment.

Amid the wild bush setting, the culinary team creates an extraordinary dining experience that blends expert culinary skills, impeccable service and artful plating. Their dishes draw from the rich cultural and natural heritage of Zambia by featuring vibrant flavours, produce and traditions.
