Chiawa Camp combines in effortlessly with its idyllic surroundings and presents security which visitors are encouraged to make their home away from home. Visitors receive the warmest of welcomes and leave as friends to return, to encounter the very best in Africa. On the shores of the Zambezi River, beneath a grove of evergreen Mahogany trees, Chiawa Camp continues the prime position in the middle of Lower Zambezi National Park.
It is at this very point where the Cummings Family first traveled this region for themselves years ago, the place where David Livingstone explored about 150 years before, and where, in 1989, they produced the very first photo safari service in the Lower Zambezi National Park. By their efforts, Chiawa has since then become one of Africa’s most popular, sought-after safari destinations.
A stunning thatched lounge area with an upstairs viewing deck provides one of the best prospects of the Zambezi River, and a fantastic setting to watch the African sunset. After experiencing Chiawa’s celebrated cuisine on the al-fresco dining veranda, one can relax by the open campfire with a cocktail in-hand, reminiscing upon the day’s adventures before retiring for the night. Each of the tents is home of luxury and peace.
For guests, relaxation is two perfectly placed game viewing coats and a beautiful swimming pool with timber sun deck facing the Zambezi river.
The tents all have wooden floors and verandas with magnificent views and are available by paths streaming behind them, to maximize isolation.
All share sufficient comforts, amenities and unexpected luxuries, enhanced by high quality, eco-friendly facilities. These include:
24/7 lighting and charging facilities
24/7 hot & cold running water,
Super-King size beds.
Egyptian cotton linens,
His & Hers washbasins,
Indoor, and outdoor showers,
Ball & Claw Baths.
We think these tents set the example for luxury Lower Zambezi National Park service; however, they still keeping the rustic and humble feel that Chiawa is so well-loved for. Activities at Chiawa Camp: Day & Night drives, Bush walks, Canoe trips, River safaris, Catch & release Angling, Hides
