Time + Tide Chongwe House

Discover Time + Tide Chongwe House

Time + Tide Chongwe House is a private safari house resting on a peaceful stretch of the Chongwe River in Zambia's Lower Zambezi National Park. With a beautiful mountain backdrop, the 2-story, 4-bedroom house blends effortlessly into the landscape around it with furniture carved from a fallen winter thorn tree. Listen to fish eagle calls, watch the warthogs 'mowing' the grass outside, and marvel at elephants wading across the river in front of the house.

The house sleeps 4 - 8 people and features private open-air bathtubs and waterfall showers, a large pool and spacious indoor and outdoor lounges with dining areas, perfect for spending time together. You will have a dedicated staff and guiding team who will look after your every need. Activities are superb, with walking safaris, game drives, canoe safaris and fishing.
