Set on the west bank of the Chongwe River, Chongwe River Camp has one of the most picturesque locations of any camp in the Lower Zambezi valley. It stands under a large grove of tall winterthorn trees, whose seed pods often attract numerous elephants into the camp.

Enjoy the best views in the Lower Zambezi at this family - and elephant - friendly camp.

Venture to the edge of a mighty river in the shadow of a mountain escarpment, where you’ll feel right at home under a shady grove of trees. Wake up from a peaceful nap to the sound of an elephant rubbing against the side of your tent as it lumbers past.

Dotted along the riverbank, Chongwe 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.

The camp has nine classic tents which are designed to make the most of the natural surroundings. Each has a panoramic view, a spacious open-air bathroom, a porch with comfortable lounge chairs, and features local textiles and handcrafted furniture.

Every day their team serves up satisfying meals, your favourite 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 to try your hand at tiger fishing.

Albida Suite

At the south end of the camp, the suite incorporates two spacious tents that share a private lounge, dining area, swimming pool and campfire.

Cassia Suite

At the far end of the camp, comprises a single spacious tent with its own bar, private lounge and pool - the perfect private hideaway for two.

Walking Safaris

Highly recommended, especially to the north where the foothills of the Zambezi escarpment form the Chongwe Falls. In this area you might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the elusive Samango or blue monkey.
