Highlights of Chongwe

The Chongwe River Camp sits at the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers. A real home from home camp with 9 exceptional ensuite tents straddling the Chongwe River.

As you can imagine, the views are stunning and game viewing is good on both day and night drives.

Walking safaris, canoeing and boat trips add another dimension and really provides the opportunity to view wildlife from a different perspective.

  • Day and night drives, boats cruises, walking safaris
  • canoeing – grab a paddle and hop on board, it’s unlike any other canoeing as you get close to wildlife both on the river banks and in the water. Look out for large elephant herds which often occupy the the river edge. Also the ‘Island hopping’ waterbuck and buffalo an be seen
  • good sightings of predators such as lion and leopard
  • fishing – this is one of the best places along the Zambezi to hook a tiger fish or two
  • community visits can be arranged
  • biodiversity rich area with eco-systems within the park from montane thickets, miombo woodlands, riparian forests and grassy woodlands
  • outstanding birdlife – great for ornithologists
  • communal outdoor dining is a really feature of Chongwe with its dramatic backdrop and river views. All meals are prepared by the team of Chefs using locally sourced, fresh ingredients.

Best time to go

  • January to June – low Season
  • July to October – high season, the weather is dry and there’s little or no rainfall
  • October to February – It’s hot and humid at this time of year just after the rains
  • November to April – excellent time for birding
