The place to stay in the Lower Zambezi National Park

The family-run Chiawa Camp is in the stunning Lower Zambezi National Park, along the banks of the Zambezi River. Opposite Zimbabwe's Mana Pools National Park, the Lower Zambezi is an area 4,092km2 in size, with 120km of river frontage. The Zambezi river and its numerous islands, lagoons and floodplains attract most of the Zambian wildlife. Chiawa Camp was one of the first to be built inside the National Park and is open during the dry season from April to November.

The accommodation at Chiawa Camp comprises nine Superior Safari Tents each with a choice of one king bed or two large single beds. All the tents feature wi-fi, en-suite bathrooms with luxurious touches, fans, 24/7 power and day beds and arm chairs on private decks. Tents one to six have the bathrooms at the back of the tent with through-room views to the Zambezi; tents seven and eight have their bathrooms on the side with views to the Chowe dry river bed and Zambezi. Tent nine, the Safari Suite, opened in June 2017, and is ideal for honeymooners, families or any couple looking for more space, luxury and privacy. The Safari Suite boasts a spacious bedroom, lounge (that converts into a second bedroom for families), luxury en-suite bathroom and a large deck with private dining facilities, more lounge furniture, private pool and gazebo with outdoor shower. The restaurant at Chiawa Camp provides mouth-watering cuisine, varied menus, paired wines, excellent presentation and great company.

To stay active at Chiawa Camp guests can utilise their pool and fitness shack, both overlooking the Zambezi river. All the guests can also access two viewing hides and two viewing platforms to watch the wildlife. The best way to view the big game is on a game drive which Chiawa Camp provides in the early morning, late afternoon and at night. You can also enjoy a bush walk, river safari, canoeing and fishing.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
