Chongwe River Camp

Explore Zambia

Set in the stunning Lower Zambezi National Park, Chongwe River Camp is a well-established property perfect for exploring some of Zambia's most alluring scenery. Found at the meeting point of the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers, the Camp holds a charming setting under Winter Thorn trees and overlooking the river waters ?? a popular haunt for local hippo. A great emphasis is placed on relaxation, which is easy to do being so close to nature. Service from staff is excellent and accommodation supplies all the modern comforts while remaining traditional.

The tented accommodation found at the camp is set along the river bank and while not overtly luxurious is exclusive in location and authenticity. Spacious interiors and comfy beds are complemented by rustic tones and an enviable proximity to surrounding wildlife, with elephant often casually passing by Camp. The Camp has recently taken over Kasaka River Lodge; a slightly more rustic property, found slightly upstream and offering a further 20 rooms.

With wildlife so rich around Chongwe it's the perfect excuse to explore all the Lower Zambezi National Park has to offer. Take in lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, hippo and countless species of bird through canoe safaris and full day picnics.

In Chongwe you felt at times that you were going to see nothing and suddnly you "ran into" a couple of lions and then a herd of about 200 Buffalo. Fishing for bream in Chongwe was interesting but not very productive but the canoe trip on my last evening was great. But I made the mistake of coming back to camp by boat as two other canoeists who came by jeep came upon a leopard. The camp Elephant also came to visit and did me the honour of doing his/her "business" right beside my tent!
