Situated in the Lower Zambezi National Park, Chiawa Camp is recognized one of the region’s premier luxury camps.
Accommodations at the camp consist of nine luxurious thatched tents that are set among the acacia and mahogany trees of the Zambezi riverbank. Each tent has beautiful timber floors and private verandas with excellent views. They are comfortable and unexpectedly luxurious with delightful amenities including hot and cold running water, king-sized beds, Egyptian cotton linens, indoor and outdoor showers, and ball and claw baths. Six tents have direct views of the Zambezi, while the remaining three overlook the dry floodplains. There are five classic tents, three superior tents, and one honeymoon tent.
Chiawa is owned and run by the Cumings Family and is located in the Lower Zambezi National Park on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River. The 2,542-square mile Park encompasses a diverse range of topography from the rugged escarpment to the north, to the Zambezi River and its numerous islands, to the lagoons and floodplains which attract most of the animals. Approximately fifty mammals and 400 bird species live in the park including one of Africa’s healthiest elephant populations, vast herds of buffalo, prides of lion, leopards, hyenas, jackals, hippos, crocodile, zebra, and antelope. The area is relatively unspoiled as it is new to tourism. The Cumings Family brought the first tourists to the Park in 1990 establishing one of the finest African safari experiences.
