In the Spotlight: Chinzombo, Zambia
Wildly luxurious , designed by award winning architects Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens, Chinzombo brings levels of comfort, style and elegance previously unseen to the Luangwa Valley.
The old Chinzombo Camp was for years the green season base for Norman Carr way back in the 1970’s. The camp is super-luxurious but retains its bush feel with grass and canvas walls and spacious living areas that melt into the exquisite surroundings of the beautiful, tranquil site.
Gigantic, ancient shade trees offer peace and tranquility for guests staying in any one of the six stunning villas, one of which is a family suite with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, perfect for families or small groups. Each villa will has its own private pool, cooled sleeping areas, and massive bathroom.
The camp is set within 60 acres of private land with Luangwa River frontage; the views from its riverside location which teems with wildlife, plus the private, direct access into one of the most game rich areas of the National Park all combine to make this a truly special place.

Africa's Finest Designing Ways
Taken from The Ultimate Green Lodge in Africa's Finest (page 381):
"Here is what we consider the core ingredients that go into making the ultimate green lodge located in a prime wildlife area. [...] Evening Breeze is an aircon system made in Holland that uses very little energy - between 170 and 600 Watts at peak use, which is no more than an ordinary fan. The system covers the bed area only to keep guests cool at night."
We couldn't agree more...
In the Spotlight: Jao Camp, Botswana
Situated on a remote island in the middle of the large private Jao Reserve in the Okavango Delta, the camp is surrounded by open seasonal floodplains providing some of the most stunning scenery Botswana has to offer.
With a fusion style of Balinese and African décor, Jao is an imposing and luxurious camp which sprawls over roughly a kilometre among tall shady leadwood, African wild mangosteen and ebony trees.
Jao Camp has nine spacious, beautiful tents, each individually handcrafted. The twin-bedded canvas and thatched rooms are all equipped with Evening Breeze, seamlessly integrated into the Kiwinets, making sure guests can enjoy their nights in the perfect climate and bug-free.
Built on raised decks, each has a private sala for afternoon siestas and offers wonderful views of the spectacular surrounding floodplains of Botswana. In addition to the lounge and dining area, there are two plunge pools and an outdoor boma for dining under the stars, complemented by wines from an excellent wine cellar. Jao Camp also has a spa where a wide range of massage therapies are offered.
Mekoro, boat trips, fishing, day and night game drives and birding are usually on offer all year round due to the abundance of wildlife in Botswana. Huge herds of red lechwe can be seen, followed by their primary predator - prides of lion. Other game typical of Botswana include elephant, buffalo, leopard, tsessebe, zebra and wildebeest, hippo and crocodile.

In the Spotlight: Zarafa Camp, Botswana
With elephants strolling around your 100 square meter ‘marquis style’ canvas tent while you’re enjoying your strawberry daiquiri in the copper plated tub, Zarafa Camp is not just your ordinary safari accommodation.
Located in the Selinda Reserve, Botswana, Zarafa Camp stands for exclusivity and perfection. Each tent is positioned on the forest's edge, rimming the shores of the floodplains. The tents are expansive and open-air and decorated with custom-made furniture, handcrafted from recycled ancient hardwoods.
The camp was thoughtfully planned to be as environmentally sensitive as possible, therefore Zarafa Camp is among the only luxury camps in the world to be powered entirely by solar energy.
That’s exactly where Evening Breeze comes in: with temperatures up to 35oC and high relative humidity it’s key to be able to provide guests with some sort of active cooling, especially during the night. Keeping the open-air style of the resort in mind and reducing energy consumption to the minimum Evening Breeze was installed in all 4 tents, enabling the guests to enjoy their well-deserved sleep in quiet comfort and with a clear eco-conscience!
Zarafa Camp was one of our first clients to benefit from our recent collaboration with Kiwinet, which resulted in this seamless integration with the elegant bespoke Kiwinet mosquito nets, ensuring the sleepers of a cool and bug-free sleeping experience.
Evening Breeze goes Social!
Yes, yes. It took a while, but Evening Breeze is taking the big step towards social media. From now on you will be able to like your favorite blog items or share that article about sleep and work efficiency you liked so much!
