Chongwe Camp

Bordering National Park


From US$730

Lodge Description

• Elephant heaven - they love wandering right through camp!
• Best views in the Lower Zambezi
• Your new happy place

Dotted along the forested riverbanks, Time + Tide Chongwe Camp is surrounded by wild beauty. Set at the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers against a beautiful mountainous backdrop, the camp offers the best views in the Lower Zambezi.

A grove of towering winterthorn trees creates a shady haven for the camp below. Guests aren't the only ones that enjoy them though - elephants frequently wander through camp to feed on the many seed pods dropped from above. Each tent offers panoramic views along the Chongwe River. Sit out front in comfortable lounge chairs and watch the abundant wildlife visiting the banks to drink and graze on the lush grasses.

Cotton linens, local textiles and handcrafted furniture blend seamlessly with organic fixtures, all designed to make the most of what Mother Nature has provided. The tents feature comfortable beds, ceiling fans, charging points and spacious, open air bathrooms.

During your stay, enjoy our impressive variety of safari activities, created for the ultimate exploration of this magnificent African paradise. By land, you can enjoy game drives and walking safaris, or take to the rivers and explore with boat cruises, canoeing safaris and tiger-fishing. Back in camp, our brand new wildlife hide is great for photography, especially rare nocturnal creatures.
