Chongwe Camp

Location: Lower Zambezi National Park

Enjoy the best views in the Lower Zambezi, looking across the meeting point of two mighty rivers.

Time + Tide Chongwe Camp is set along the confluence of the Chongwe River, which winds through the forested valley meeting with the mighty Zambezi River, creating a haven for wildlife and exceptional sightings.

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 drives to walking safaris or take to the rivers on a boat cruise or canoeing safari or try your hand at tiger fishing.


Boasting breathtaking views and, quite often, elephants wandering the camp, Chongwe has all the qualities to make you instantly fall in love with it. Your hosts make sure you can truly unwind and switch off the rest of the world, while still offering an unmatched variety of activities: day and night drives, boat cruises, walking safaris, or their wildly popular, canoeing experience that offers you the opportunity to view wildlife from a unique vantage point.

Its eight 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.

Tented suites feature private, shaded outdoor bathrooms with a freestanding bath and shower (you will love the outdoor bathroom, nothing like some windswept ablutions), and a verandah with views across the river. The camp communal areas convey a relaxed vibe. All areas are shaded by canvas and open-sided, letting nature through at its leisure. There is plenty of seating with plush cushions, spacious dining area, an open, sandy campfire next to the river (perfect for starry night skies) and a swimming pool.
