Outside View of River from Tent, Chongwe River Camp, Lower Zambezi, Zambia

Chongwe River Camp

Chongwe River Camp is situated at the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers, directly opposite Mana Pools. This is a true 'bush camp' in a wilderness area; elephant are more numerous than people in the Albida Grove - there are no fences and the animals have right of way.

The en suite chalets are large, well-appointed Mulati tents under thatch, with a luxury open air bathrooms. Nestled under a canopy of Albida thorns and surrounded by cool lawns, they command fabulous views. Each tent sleeps two people - twin or double beds can be arranged.

The camp chef prepares a wide variety of dishes, which are served at the outdoor dining table, and activities include game drives, including night drives in the national park or along the Chongwe River, walking safaris, cruising, fishing and canoeing.
