About two hours' drive southwest of Mfuwe, Chamilandu was originally set up in 1988 as a bush camp for walking safaris. Rebuilt on a new site in 1999, again on the banks of the Luangwa River but with the Nchindeni Hills in the background, which look beautiful in the late afternoon sun, it was totally refurbished and upgraded. Set on high wooden decks, the chalets are made of thatch and reeds, and have open-air showers, double wash basins and flush toilets. The twin or queen-size double beds are all wrought iron and have mosquito nets and small solar-powered reading lights. Game drives are offered as an alternative to the usual walks.
It is easily possible to do a walking trip between Chamilandu, Chindeni and Bilimungwe – walking between them with your luggage taken ahead for you – as they're only about 10km apart.
