Time + Tide Chongwe River Camp
Chongwe River Camp, located on the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers in Zambia, has wonderful views of the Muchinga Mountains to the north. Across the Chongwe River is the Lower Zambezi National Park, a pristine wilderness with a wide variety of terrain.
Accommodation & Facilities
Chongwe River Camp is a comfortable camp comprising nine tented chalets with en-suite bathrooms and private verandahs overlooking the river. The camp has a rustic bar and meals are served outside either on the banks of the Chongwe River, or in the bush overlooking the Zambezi River. Chongwe River Camp also has the Albida suite which is made up of two, en-suite deluxe rooms with a lounge/dining area and pool shared between the two rooms. The idea is to cater for families and small groups. Guests are welcome to join the main camp for meals and drinks as a stay here is about optional exclusivity. Each room has inter-leading path ways and gardens set out with safety in mind and the bathrooms are open air. Dining is usually out under the stars and trees, but with provision for shelter. The camp also has a pool.
Wildlife & Activities
Safari activities at Chongwe include day and night drives, guided bush walks, canoeing and boat trips. With ancient forests, a permanent river and open pans, the camp’s surroundings support a huge diversity and abundance of wildlife. There is especially good predator action, prolific leopard sightings and large herds of elephants, and guests are also likely to see buffalo, lion and leopard, hippo and crocodile, as well as kudu, waterbuck and impala. Birding is also good in this area, and the fishing in the Zambezi for tigerfish and bream is excellent.
