Drive around our 40+ square kilometer estate to see a variety of wildlife and spot some of the most intriguing animals (some found only in Zambia) with the help of our experienced guides. Chaminuka has over 7,000 animals and is still making additions to the large family. The reserve plays host to several habitats and from marshy swamps to open plains, savannah to miombo forests; more than 70 species of wildlife call it home. It features three of the Big Five and all of Zambia’s 18 antelope species.
The Reserve is also within an important ornithological area – a true testimony to its tranquility and peace. More than 300 bird species can be spotted around Chaminuka’s lakes and wetlands, many permanent and others flying through as part of their annual migration from Southern Africa to West Africa, the Russian steppes and back.
