Zambia is a malarial area and we strongly advise all visitors to consult their local physician regarding prophylactics prior to departure. Both medical and travel insurance are highly recommended.
Getting to Chaminuka
Although offering perfect seclusion in the depth of a wild landscape, Chaminuka is strategically situated only 30 minutes away from the Lusaka International Airport (transfers are arranged by the Lodge). The airport is serviced daily by international carriers directly from London, or via Nairobi, Addis Ababa and Johannesburg from Europe, the United States and the East.
What to bring
The dress code at Chaminuka is very relaxed. Bush coloured clothes are best. A few essentials to pack: a warm jacket or a sweater for the evenings, light cotton shorts and trousers, long-sleeved cotton shirts, hat, sunscreen, bathing suit, walking shoes, your camera and binoculars.
Chaminuka gladly accommodates particular dietary requirements or special requests, as long as it is notified in advance, preferably at the time of the booking.
