Time + Tide Chinzombo, South Luangwa National Park, Zambia

Norman Carr Safaris, Zambia's first safari company, has always innovated across it's 64 year history. In 2013 they opened Chinzombo which is the next generation of Zambian safari camp and fast becoming one of THE places to visit in Africa. Wildly luxurious, it brings a new level of style, comfort and elegance to the Luangwa Valley. Architects Silvio Rech & Lesley Carstens, the visionaries behind North Island - Seychelles, have created six sublime villas, one of which is specially designed for families with two bedrooms.

Each Villa has a private pool, cooled sleeping area, spacious bathroom and Wi-Fi. In the shade of magnificent trees, the 60 acre riverside location teems with wildlife and has direct access to the national park on the opposite river bank.

Back in the 1950’s Norman Carr pioneered walking safaris in Zambia. His aim was to track big game on foot in Zambia’s Luangwa Valley, one of Africa’s last havens of un-spoilt wilderness and home to some of the continent’s greatest concentrations of game. Norman like to say "to view the bush from a vehicle is simply to be an observer, but to get out on foot was to become a part of your surroundings."

Driving safaris are all conducted in open 4X4 vehicles (Land Cruiser or Land Rover) with either two or three 'rows' of seats. At Chinzombo, Luwi, Nsolo, Kakuli and Mchenja we generally have 4, with no more than 6, people on a vehicle ensuring everyone has a 'window' seat.
