The family owned and operated, multi-award-winning Chiawa Camp, is the pioneer of the Lower Zambezi National Park, the first camp to settle along the banks of the mighty Zambezi River. Zambia’s premier luxury safari camp, Chiawa is a gentle and unhurried experience for both wildlife and guests, while still offering up a diverse range of activities. From game drives to heart-stopping game walks as well as canoeing, boating and angling – all in the company of Africa’s finest guides.

Each of the luxury tents boast spectacular views over the Zambezi River and its vast array of resident wildlife. Elephant, lion, leopard, hippo and much more, occupy this gorgeous region of Zambia.

The soul that Chiawa Safaris is built on.

The creative culinary team at the Chiawa Camp ensure meals are of the highest standard, from seasonal menus developed and enhanced over time.

Along with Chiawa’s renowned dedication to its guests, staff, local communities and conservation, allow yourself to share in Chiawa’s passion, so that you can enjoy one of Africa’s finest safari camps and the wildlife adventure of a lifetime.

In the Soli language, Chiawa means ‘The one who shares’ – an appropriate name for such a camp that honours the local people and their traiditions. Read more about Chiawa Camp, its range of luxury Lower Zambezi lodges, and its rich history.

With 20+ camp visits and 200 safari drives under my belt I feel qualified to say Chiawa is one of the best in Southern Africa.

Best run safari camp ... if you don't have time to visit many camps and have to pick just one, I recommend this one.

Great wildlife sightings and very comfortable vehicles topped off a superb stay at Chiawa Camp. Definitely a place we will return too.

This was an outstanding safari experience such that the five days at this camp were at the top of our total 25 days experience staying at safari camps across Africa.

If you want amazing wildlife, unique experiences, excellent guides, a bit of luxury in a relaxed and friendly camp Chiawa is the place for you.

My wife and I have a rule to never repeat a camp but we will come back here.
