Chongwe River Camp

Chongwe River Camp is situated on the confluence of the mighty Zambezi and Chongwe Rivers, directly opposite the famed Mana Pools World Heritage Site in Zimbabwe, and shares the boundary of the Lower Zambezi National Park.

Luxury tented chalets are strung out like a beaded necklace along the Chongwe River underneath a cooling canopy of winterthorn trees.

Light, airy and spacious, with either one king-size or two twin beds and integrated shelving, each of the eight classic tents at Chongwe River Camp is equipped with enough luxuries to ensure your stay in the bush is exceptional.

Chongwe’s two tented suites – the Albida Suite and Cassia Suite offer a completely private, butler-serviced accommodation and dining option.

The suites have their own unique attributes:

Albida is a colonial-style tented suite sleeping four guests in two spacious, custom designed octagonal bedrooms.

Cassia Suite is ideal for guests requesting the exclusivity of a suite with privacy and is the quintessential romantic setting for honeymoon couples.

Safari Experience

Owned and run by the Liebenberg family – Chongwe River Camp is among the oldest, most established and best respected safari lodges in Zambia’s Lower Zambezi Valley.

The Liebenbergs and the Chongwe team are dedicated to one thing – making your safari adventure in Zambia the experience of a lifetime.

To see the game we offer drives, walks, cruises and canoeing.

Or you can just relax in camp where we very often have elephants walking through.

The Lower Zambezi is well known as one the best places to catch (and release!) tiger fish.

 

Wildlife & Birdlife

At just over 4000 square kilometres, the Lower Zambezi National Park is home to all of the major species in the valley with excellent sightings of elephant, buffalo, lion and leopard.

There is also an impressive array of birdlife.
