A unique venue that seems to grow organically from the ground

Chongwe River House is a beautifully designed private house located approximately 1km away from Chongwe River Camp. Inspired by the towering termite mounds, the unique look of this house will leave you feeling like you’ve stepped into another world: branches seem to grow from the walls and the ceilings are embedded with soft pebbles from the Chongwe river.

The accommodation can sleep a maximum of eight guests in four spacious, en-suite bedrooms. The rooms are equipped with either king-size or twin beds and are arranged on two floors with their own private outdoor sitting area. The luxurious bathrooms feature innovative showers that mimic the waterfalls of the upper river. For meals guests can choose to eat at the magnificent, hand-carved dining table in the main area, or al fresco on the deck under a canopy of stars. For a completely tailor-made experience, meals are all prepared by your very own team of chefs with meal times arranged to suit.

The Chongwe area is famous for the resident male elephants that wander around the grounds and across the river. The Chongwe River House can arrange walking safaris, canoe safaris, catch-and-release fishing, game drives, boat cruises and a visit to the local village.

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
