Dotted along the forested riverbanks, Chongwe River Camp is surrounded by wild beauty. Set at the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers against a beautiful mountainous backdrop, the camp offers the best views in the Lower Zambezi. 

A grove of towering winterthorn trees create a shady haven for the camp below. Guests aren’t the only ones that enjoy them though – elephants frequently wander through camp to feed on the many seed pods dropped from above. Each tent offers panoramic views along the Chongwe River. Sit out front in comfortable lounge chairs and watch the abundant wildlife visiting the banks to drink and graze on the lush grasses. 

Cotton linens, local textiles and handcrafted furniture blend seamlessly with organic fittings and fixtures, all designed to make the most of what Mother Nature has provided. The tents feature comfortable beds, ceiling fans, charging points and spacious, open air bathrooms. 

During your stay, enjoy the impressive variety of safari activities, created for the ultimate exploration of this magnificent African paradise. By land, you can enjoy game drives and walking safaris, or take to the rivers and explore with boat cruises, canoeing safaris and tiger-fishing. Back in camp, the brand-new wildlife hide is great for photography, especially rare nocturnal creatures.
