A policy of non-intrusive enjoyment of wildlife and low environmental impact has helped to make the Lower Zambezi valley one of southern Africa’s premier game viewing destinations. Add to this the amazing fauna and flora found in and on the banks of Africa’s fourth largest river, and you begin to understand why this amazing wilderness is so special. At Chongwe River Camp, activities are tailored to make the most of this incredibly diverse wilderness.Game viewing can be done from a vehicle in either the Lower Zambezi National Park or the Chiawa Partnership Park or, if you prefer, from a boat on the Zambezi. Canoeing, walking and, of course, fishing, are also offered. And for those interested in the rich cultural heritage of the area, community visits can be arranged.
Chongwe River Camp’s outdoor, communal dining area is at the heart of the camp. Set overlooking the beautiful Chongwe and Zambezi rivers, with the escarpment providing a dramatic back drop, the view is truly stunning. Our team of experienced Chefs prepare a wide variety of delicious meals using fresh and locally sourced ingredients. Guests staying in our Albida or Cassia Suites have the option of dining privately or are more than welcome to join guests for meals at the main camp. Our team of highly trained, local Chefs are more than happy to cater for any special dietary requirements you may have. If your food preferences or requirements could be considered out of the ordinary (vegetarian, vegan, gluten, dairy free etc) then we do ask that you inform us in advance of your arrival.
