Dotted along the riverbank, Chongwe River camp is set at the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers which wind through the forested valley, creating a haven for wildlife like lions, leopards and wild dog.
Its nine classic tents are designed to make the most of what Mother Nature provided. Each has a panoramic view along the Chongwe River, a spacious open-air bathroom, a porch with comfortable lounge chairs and features local textiles and handcrafted furniture.
Every day the team serves up satisfying meals, your favorite drinks and big smiles in the relaxed main lounge. The wildlife hide is great for photography and for spotting rare nocturnal creatures.
The small number of camps in Lower Zambezi National Park keep it free from overcrowding. The area is best known for its impressive variety of safari activities—enjoy game drives and walking safaris on land, take to the rivers on a boat cruise or canoeing safari, or try your hand at tiger fishing.
