Situated on the banks of the Chongwe River near the Lower Zambezi National Park, the Chongwe River Camp offers a non-intrusive safari experience in a relaxed, natural setting where large herds of elephant roam. The Lower Zambezi valley has some of the best game viewing in southern Africa along with some of the most stunning flora and fauna.

Relax in the sitting area overlooking the river and watch the constant procession of game coming to drink. The river banks also make for some spectacular bird watching – the area is home to over 250 species of birds. Get closer to nature on a guided game drive in open 4x4 vehicles, on a tranquil canoe safari, or find a peaceful spot and try your hand at tiger fish angling.


  • Located where the Chongwe & Zambezi rivers meet
  • Near the border of the Lower Zambezi National Park
  • Beautifully furnished and designed lodge with great views over the river

"On the convergence of two rivers this is the perfect spot to enjoy game. We had elephants and hippos in camp the entire time we stayed there!"
