Chiawa Camp

Lower Zambezi

Founded and run by The Cumings Family whom have vast experience in guiding, conservation and the safari industry, guests are assured of the highest standards in all aspects of their safari at Chiawa Camp.

Each of the nine luxury tents comprise comfortable beds, mosquito nets, indoor and outdoor showers, his and hers wash basins, day beds and arm chairs on verandas, and a roll top bath all overlooking the Zambezi River. The furthest Superior Tent is ideal for honeymooners.

In the centre of camp the bar and dining area are under thatch and have deep chairs, lots of books and fine views of the river.

Guests can take a dip in the refreshing plunge pool, complete with sundeck, overlooking the Zambezi of course. There is also an open-air gym with river views. With very little human presence in the area, game is plentiful and elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and other species are literally on the doorstep.

Why we recommend Chiawa Camp

“Much like its sister camp Old Mondoro, Chiawa Camp enjoys the same authentic bush experience in a pure and pristine environment – a plethora of safari activities, spectacular wildlife encounters and top-notch guiding, but with an added sense of luxury and bush sophistication. We especially like the feeling of space; on the large verandas there are comfortable chairs, perfect for relaxing during the afternoons with a book and your binoculars.”
