Chiawa Camp was one of the first safari lodges to set up camp in the once-lawless-now-thriving Lower Zambezi National Park. Today, the family-run camp retains its pioneering African safari ethos with a charming old-world safari tent accommodation beneath massive thatched gazebos.
Chiawa Camp has six large double suites, two super-sized suites and a palatial honeymoon suite. All have private game viewing balconies beneath a beautiful fringe of mahogany trees on the edge of the Zambezi River. Bathrooms conform to the traditional open-air theme and have twin vanities, two showers, delightful slipper baths and Molton Brown toiletries on tap.
The living area features swimming pool, a covered lounge and (rarely used) dining area, an elevated game viewing platform and bright and cheery campfire around which you usually start and end your day.
