Chongwe River House

Zambia’s Lower Zambezi is renowned throughout Africa for its magnificent herds of wild elephant, exceptional predator viewing and of course the Zambezi River. It is also home to one of the continent’s most spectacular and unique private homes – Chongwe River House.

It is set on the banks of the Chongwe River in a private secluded spot.  Out of Africa, and out of this world! Chongwe River House is unique; a true one-of-a-kind.

Crafted by renowned architect Neil Rocher, this is award-winning safari design at its finest.

This stunning private house makes a significant and unique style statement, located on a quiet stretch of the river after which it was named.

Sleeping eight guests in four, huge en-suite bedrooms, Chongwe River House is inspired by the towering spires of termitariums, sprouting almost organically from the ground in a series of flowing curves and bends which evolve into open living spaces.

The walls follow the natural lines of the branches used; tree trunks, lianas and branches seem to grow from the walls and blend effortlessly into seating and dining areas.

Many animals come to the Chongwe River to drink and from the deck the game viewing can be as good as any safari activity.
