Chiawa Camp blends in effortlessly with its idyllic surroundings, and provides a retreat which guests are invited to make their home away from home. Guests receive the friendliest of welcomes, the biggest of smiles and leave as friends to return time and again, to experience the very best in Africa.
On the banks of the Zambezi River, under a grove of evergreen Mahogany trees, Chiawa Camp holds the prime position in the heart of Zambia’s Lower Zambezi National Park.
It is at this very spot where the Cumings Family first explored this area for themselves decades ago, the place where David Livingstone ventured nearly 150 years previously, and where, in 1989, they created the very first photo safari operation in the Lower Zambezi National Park. Through their efforts, Chiawa has since become one of Africa’s most desirable, sought after safari destinations.
A stunning thatched lounge/bar area with upstairs viewing deck provides one of the best views of the Zambezi River, and a fantastic setting to watch the sun set over another day in Africa. After enjoying Chiawa’s renowned cuisine on the al-fresco dining veranda, one can relax by the open camp fire with a cocktail in-hand, reminiscing upon the day's adventures before retiring for the night. Each of the tents are a sanctuary of luxury and tranquillity.
Also available for guests' enjoyment and relaxation are two perfectly positioned game viewing hides and a gorgeous swimming pool with timber sun deck overlooking the Zambezi.
For the more active, a small but well equipped, secluded Exercise Area with a splendid view of the Zambezi is available for guests who might wish to work off some calories or keep up their fitness levels.
The tents all have timber floors and verandas with excellent views and are accessible by paths running behind them, to maximise privacy.
All share ample comforts, conveniences and unexpected luxuries, complemented by high quality, eco-friendly amenities. These include:
• Free WiFi
• 24/7 lighting and charging facilities (220v UK plugs)
• 24/7 hot & cold running water
• Super-King size beds
• Egyptian cotton linens
• His & Hers washbasins
• Indoor and outdoor showers
• Ball & Claw Baths
We believe these tents set the standard for luxury Lower Zambezi National Park accommodation; however they still retain the rustic and unpretentious feel that Chiawa is so well-loved for.
Tents VII, VIII & IX all overlook the dry riverbed with quartering views of the Zambezi River whereas Tents I - VI face the Zambezi directly.
