Bring your safari dreams to life

On the confluence of the mighty Zambezi and Chongwe Rivers, opposite the renowned Mana Pools, lies Chongwe River Camp. Established in 1996, Chongwe Safaris is one of the oldest and most reputable companies in the Lower Zambezi. Zambia's Lower Zambezi valley is one of Africa's last great wilderness areas, renowned for breath-taking scenery and incredible wildlife.

Accommodation at Chongwe River Camp comprises nine Classic Tents and three suites. The Classic Tents are light and spacious and include either a king-sized bed or two singles and have been built with thatch roofs and a large outdoor bathroom. They also have private verandas with uninterrupted views of the river and surrounding landscape. The Albida suite is a luxurious, self-contained, colonial-style tent which sleeps four guests in two spacious, octagonal bedrooms set on either side of a private dining room and lounge area, ideal for families or friends travelling together. The outside bathrooms are laid out beneath their own tented canopy. The Cassia Suite is ideal for guests wanting exclusivity and privacy and is the quintessential romantic setting for honeymoon couples.

The Chongwe River Camp provides a variety of activities including day and night game drives, boat cruises, walking safaris and canoeing. The Lower Zambezi is also known as one of the best places to catch (and release) a tiger fish or two. Chongwe River Camp is also the place to relax: you can put your feet and read a book while taking in the beautiful surroundings.

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
