Chongwe River Camp
Situated on the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers, Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia
Time to switch off and take in some of the best views in the valley.
A canoe safari will take you to diverse game and bird life; catch and release a tiger or two, or watch the antics of the camp visiting elephants.
The Lower Zambezi is one of southern Africa’s premier destinations for game viewing and unparalleled tiger fish angling.
Chongwe river camp itself looks onto the confluence of the two rivers and the mountains of the escarpment to the north.
Some of Africa’s great explorers (Selous and Livingstone) were drawn to this pristine wildlife wilderness
