Set in the remote wilderness of Zambia’s Lower Zambezi Valley, Chongwe River Camp is the perfect spot to view the true wilds of Africa in the comfort of a luxury safari camp.
There are nine comfortable standard tents and two elegant suites. Each of the spacious and airy standard tents comes with either a single king-sized or two twin beds. The rooms also have a large, outdoor bathroom which features a shower, a toilet, a vanity unit, and a dressing area with a wardrobe and full-length mirror. Plus, every tent enjoys a private veranda with marvelous views of the river. The romantic Cassia Suite comes with a canopied lounge, outside bathroom with shower and claw-foot tub, private dining room, plunge pool, and butler service. For families, the Albida Suite has the same amenities as Cassia with two-bedrooms.
The camp is located near the Lower Zambezi National Park, the first carbon-neutral national park and opposite Mana Pools National Park. Once the private game reserve of Zambia’s president, the park comprises 2,542 square miles of true wilderness away from the large crowds. A small area on the valley floor is home to many of the bigger mammals including elephant, buffalo, hippo, waterbuck, kudu, zebra, and crocodiles, and occasionally, roan, eland, and the Samango monkey. There are plenty of birds in the area including fish eagles, red-winged pratincole, the elegant crested guinea fowl, black eagle, and vast swarms of quelea.
