Chongwe River Camp Location Map

Chongwe River Camp is a tented camp, which is situated on the river bank where the Chongwe and Zambezi rivers meet. Across the Chongwe River is the Lower Zambezi National Park, which offers a pristine wilderness with a wide variety of terrain,and is one of Southern Africa's premier destinations for game viewing.

The Lower Zambezi National Park covers an area of 4,092 square kilometers, and the floodplains, grasslands and tall forests support fantastic game densities. Enormous herds of elephant, some up to 100 strong, are often seen at the river's edge, and pods of hippo rest in the water. 'Island hopping' buffalo and waterbuck are common. Impala are everywhere and kudu, eland, zebra and wildebeest are frequently seen. The sandy river banks are home to iridescent carmine bee-eater colonies while kingfishers and African skimmers flit above the waters. Predators include leopard, large prides of lion and packs of wild dog.

Chongwe River Camp has 8 tented chalets, each with en-suite facilities and a private verandah overlooking the river. There is also the Aldiba Suite, which is made up of 2 deluxe rooms with a lounge/dining area and pool shared between the 2 rooms, making this ideal for families or small groups who want more privacy. In addition, the Cassia Suite is a private luxury tented suite consisting of a canopied lounge and dining area with private plunge pool and fire pit and huge octagonal bedroom - perfect for honeymooners or romantic couples.

The main camp has a rustic bar and meals are served outside either on the banks of the Chongwe River, or in the bush overlooking the Zambezi River.
