Chongwe River Camp

Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

If Chongwe tried to outdo its dramatic setting between the Zambezi and Chongwe Rivers, it would have been a short-lived contest. Towered over by a thicket of acacias, lithe trunks dancing upwards to the their picturesque umbrella-shaped canopies, Chongwe River Camp is understated safari elegance on the shores of an African river giant.

The suites, just eight of them, are built from local hardwood with tented sides, glass fronts and thatched roofs. The en suite bathrooms look out to the bush and up to the sky and your private veranda looks out over the river confluence.

Dining is a fairly expansive occasion with fresh ingredients, fine wine and a sensational setting joining forces for a wickedly romantic evening. A little way off, in a private nook, the Chongwe Albida Suite is an African villa with the luxury and seclusion of an A-lister's me-my-friends-and-I play pad.

The Lower Zambezi National Park is big game country. Barricaded in by the heavily wooded Zambezi escarpment and fed by a vast drainage basin, life in the Zambezi Valley tends to appear larger than elsewhere. Elephant, lion, buffalo, giraffe, hippo, kudu, zebra, waterbuck, impala... even the elusive and enchanting sable and roan antelopes dwell in this land of giants.
