Embracing new technologies to minimise environmental impact and utilising recycled or locally sourced, sustainable materials in Chinzombo’s construction, the architects have successfully retained the spirit of Old Africa in an otherwise modern design ethic. The result is a seamless blend of bygone style infused with a distinctive freshness that offers discerning travellers a truly original setting.
Take advantage of the lodge’s range of amenities: from Wi-Fi access to yoga and spa facilities, from your private plunge pool to plenty of shady decks for armchair game viewing. When it comes to activities, Chinzombo offers day and night drives along with guided nature walks and cultural visits to the local village.
Sip on a freshly brewed tea or coffee as you watch the dawn mist rise off the river before a light breakfast and your morning game drive. As the mid-morning temperature begins to rise, return to the camp’s shady grove of trees and a hearty brunch on the terrace. With a breeze rustling the leaves above, relax by the pool or indulge in a siesta on your private verandah, rousing yourself in the late afternoon to sample the sumptuous high tea.
After your afternoon game drive, evenings are given over to cocktails, hippo serenades, and the convivial conversation of a crackling fireplace. Dinner is served on crisp linen by the soft glow of candlelight. Add an excellent wine list and the wild symphony of the African night, and you will find few better gastronomic experiences on safari.
