Chongwe River Camp

ZAMBEZI/CHONGWE RIVERS WESTERN AREA – Set under a complete canopy of huge Winterthorn Acacias, Chongwe occupies an unrivalled location, used twice as a base camp by David Livingstone on his travels, as well as Courtney Selous, when he hunted in his favourite wilderness. Each tent is a large walk in canvas safari tent hung from a thatch roof. Bathrooms are open-air surrounded by a stone wall for privacy and are probably the most novel bathrooms we came across in Zambia. The communal dining/bar area overlooks the Chongwe & Zambezi Rivers. Fly-camping at Bushbuck Camp available by prior arrangement.

"At every place we stayed, the accommodation was very different and special, the food excellent and the service superb. We are also pleased that each place made a point of employing many local people and have initiatives in place to help the local economy and villages - Northern Tanzania Safari & Mafia Island"
