WHAT WE LOVE: Kenya is the one country that offers everything. From the fun and funky capital city of Nairobi to the pristine beaches along the coast - Kenya offers fantastic diversity. The gorgeous Laikipia with its lush landscapes is crowned by its vast conservancies, the arid Northern Frontier which is home to the colourful and proud Samburu is an experience best complemented by the open plains of the Mara. Kenya's savannahs are rich with game, the cultural encounters are authentic, and the dramatic landscapes characterised by equatorial forests and mighty snow-capped mountains. Safaris have been the mainstay of Kenya’s tourism for many decades and it also rates as one of the top five bird-watching destinations in the world.



Walking distance from Chindeni only, and the longest direct walk (± 4 hours). Drive time from Mfuwe Lodge: ± 2½ hours.
Chamilandu Bushcamp is located on the edge of the Luangwa River beneath a soaring ebony grove. The beautiful open-fronted, thatched chalets are set on 2m high wooden stilts and offer a bird’s eye view over the river. Each one has an en-suite bathroom with a double vanity, toilet and twin showers with cold and solar-heated water. There are 2 twin chalets (queen size beds) and 1 double chalet (king size bed).
