Sitting under a grove of evergreen mahogany trees on the banks of the Zambezi River, Chiawa Camp holds a prime position in the heart of Zambia’s Lower Zambezi National Park. It was here, in 1989, that the Cumings family created the very first photographic safari operation in the Lower Zambezi National Park. Skilfully constructed of natural materials Chiawa Camp blends in with its idyllic surroundings.
Situated on the Zambezi River in the Lower Zambezi National Park.
Accommodation and facilities:
There are five classic safari tents and three superior tents at Chiawa Camp, accommodating a maximum of sixteen guests. The tents all have excellent views and are accessed by paths running behind them to maximise privacy. Chiawa is renowned for its cuisine and meals are taken on the al fresco dining veranda. After dinner, guests retire to the campfire and enjoy a cocktail or two while taking in the sounds and magic of the African night. A stunning thatched lounge/bar area with upstairs viewing deck provides one of the best views of the Zambezi.
Activities here include guided bush walks, game drives, river safaris, canoeing and fishing.
Chiawa Camp has its own in-house guide training programme to ensure quality and consistency is maintained. Guests can set their own pace and select activities according to their preferences. In a hidden corner of camp there is a viewing hide up in a mahogany tree from where guests can watch life and the Zambezi go by or opt to take a dip in the refreshing plunge pool, complete with sun deck.
