Chongwe River Camp Lower Zambezi

Chongwe River Camp is set beneath a canopy of winterhorns at the confluence of the Zambezi and Chongwe Rivers. 

The nine standard tents are light and airy, furnished with local textiles and sumptuous linen. Each has a large outdoor bathroom with hot and cold running water, shower and loo. The tents also have their own private veranda overlooking the river, making them an ideal place for relaxation and siestas in the afternoon. Albida Suite is a two- bedroom suite accommodating up to four people, making it ideal for families or friends travelling together. Cassia Suite is the perfect choice for honeymoons and romantic couples as it’s ultra-private and comes with its own private butler and outside bath tub.

There's a spacious dining area, and the communal areas feature plenty of seating with plush cushions. The sandy campfire next to the river is perfect for starry night skies. There is also a swimming pool.

Why we recommend Chongwe River Camp

“Located at the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers, Chongwe River Camp offers some of the best views of the Lower Zambezi, looking out across the waterways and against a mountainous backdrop. A real highlight here is the wildlife encounters within camp itself, notably elephants who frequently wander through camp in search of fresh seed pods.”
