New Luxury Lodge to Open in Zambia

chinzombo

Big news from Zambia today: Norman Carr Safaris has announced that it will open a luxury lodge on the banks of the Luangwa River, just upstream from the company's flagship, Kapani Lodge.
 
The new lodge will be called Chinzombo. We hear that construction has already begun; completion is expected in late 2012, with the official opening planned for January 2013.

The new venue will comprise six villas, one of which will be configured as a suite for families and small groups.  All suites will have private plunge pools, cooled sleeping areas, massive bathrooms with luxurious spa amenities and internet connections.  Ancient shade trees abound here; wildlife wanders through the camp; and the animal and bird life of the river can be viewed from the villas.
 
What we love: Guests of Chinzombo will have private river access to the South Luangwa National Park. The Luangwa Valley marks the end of (and is an offshoot of) the Great Rift Valley, and covers an area of more than two million acres. The oxbow lagoons, woodland and plains of the valley have a huge concentrations of game including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo and more than 400 species of birds. Game drives, night drives and walking safaris will all be available.
