Every bush lover. Call us biased, but this is really just perfect. We wouldn’t change a thing.
On the banks of the Chongwe River beside the Lower Zambezi National Park.
There are nine tents with thatched roofs and open-air bathrooms - comfortable but very much at one with nature- and if your thatch is just a bit askew don’t worry, they’ll fix it as soon as possible, but sometimes the ellies just can’t resist a nibble. For a little something extra there are also two seriously lovely suites if you want to splash out. The Albida suites sleeps four, and has its own dining area and plunge pool, while the Cassia suite is vast, and ideal for honeymooners or couples who want to hide away from the world.
Food is wonderful and perfectly suited to your day - warming porridge when you head out in the morning, light lunch before you have your afternoon tea, and communal dinners that make each night terrific fun. There’s a campfire lit in the evening (and on chilly mornings) and it’s not uncommon to spend hours chatting and sharing tales of adventure with your fellow guests.
One of the things that we love about Chongwe River Camp (part of a long, long list) is the sheer variety of activities on offer. There are day and night game drives, walking safaris, canoe trips on the river, and fishing. There’s bream fishing on the Chongwe River (and if you catch a big ‘un, there’s the chance to bring it home for tea) and catch-and-release tiger fishing.
Chongwe River Camp can supply limited fishing equipment, but if you’re a very serious fisherman, we would recommend bringing your own.
