Chindeni has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment. They have done a wonderful job, it is both elegant and modern. The camp overlooks an oxbow lagoon, which is packed with wildlife and birdlife, which you can view from the split-level decking in the main area. Whereby, you can also enjoy alfresco lunches and star lit dinners. The four tents are on raised wooden platforms, which are both stylish and comfortable.

With an abundance of habitats around the lodge, including the lagoon, it is an absolute haven for birds. Twitchers’ at the ready, grab your binos and settle into a deck chair as the wildlife comes to you!
The lagoon itself hosts a huge amount of water birds so settle in and commence counting them off your tick list! Coupled with the nearby woodlands, this is the spot to settle into and enjoy many colourful feathered friends!
After the refurb, Chindeni is a very modern bush camp, whilst this may not appeal to everyone and some prefer a more traditional rustic camp we love the simplistic luxury at Chindeni. Clean lines and comfort are at the top of the agenda.
They pair great food and guiding without any of the excesses. There are sunbeds next to the rooms and kikoys and bathrobes to use during your stay. They have considered every detail to make your stay as pleasant as can be.
The camp is around three hours’ drive from the Mfuwe gate. You are well within the park and away from the crowds. We were really impressed with the sightings around the camp and loved that we didn’t see many other vehicles in the area whilst on our activities.
Sleeping under the stars in a canvas tent always invokes a sense of adventure but Chindeni manages to do all this without loosing any of the comfort. From walking safaris to night drives, they have every possible activity to make the most of the wildlife in the area and get those crucial sightings. Due to the diverse habitat around the camp you often don’t have to leave to start your game viewing, which only adds to the excitement of staying here!
