Chongwe, Zambia
Lower Zambezi

Chongwe, Zambia

Under a complete canopy of huge Winter Thorn Acacias (Albidas), it is such an unrivalled site that David Livingstone used it twice on his travels of the north bank of the Zambezi, as did Courtney Selous, when he hunted in this, his favourite wilderness! Chongwe River Camp is situated on the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers, directly opposite Mana Pools.




The chalets are large, well appointed Mulati tents under thatch, with a luxury open air bathroom ensuite. Situated under a canopy of Albidas thorns and surrounded by cool lawns, they command fabulous views over the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers. Each tent sleeps two people, twin or double beds can be arranged.

The bathrooms are an experience on their own. Shower under the stars or the early morning sunshine. All fittings are made from natural materials found near the lodge.

Whether its the classic tents, the Albida or Cassia tented suites, the exclusive Chongwe River House, Tsika Island or the newest member of the family Kasaka River Lodge, you can be sure that your accommodation is a real home from home - a place where you can unwind, be yourself and make your own.


Exceptional Game viewing opportunities are available from the Lodge, either by open safari vehicle, on foot or by canoe and motorboat. Both day and night drives are available but groups can plan their activities around their preferences. Chongwe specialises in walking safaris, affording time to learn about the not so obvious secrets of the bush.
