The Chinzombo Lodge is designed to balance the finest in luxury while still remaining sustainable and eco-friendly. The entire lodge is built out of recyclable steel, found wood and thatch, which make up the main camp and six onsite villas. The design is decidedly minimalist, and there’s a lounge, bar, library, spa, wine cellar and veranda overlooking the river that reflect these aesthetics. The managing director of Chinzombo and Journeys by Design is an environmental scientist that has worked with numerous national parks and nature reserves throughout Africa. The Journeys by Design group has raised millions in funds for charities that support education and wildlife conservation.
