Chongwe River Camp

Chongwe is one of the oldest and most established companies in the Lower Zambezi and going into the 17th year of operations can compete with most operators for longevity except of course with Norman Carr Safaris, the grandfather of photographic safaris in Zambia and indeed Africa. A staggering 62 year proud history. Part owners of Chongwe Safaris, the Dalais family, are now also part owners of Norman Carr and so two much loved Zambian safari brands find their future paths converging. We are honoured, proud and very excited to see what this marriage will bring.     



Relax! It’s the only thing we insist upon at Chongwe. You can put your feet up on our furniture without worrying what anyone is going to think...


Or curl up amongst plump cushions with a good book and not bother about appearances...

We like great service and winning smiles more than dressing for dinner.

These are the ethics we take seriously in all of our award-winning accommodation options. 

Whether its our classic tents, the Albida or Cassia tented suites, our exclusive Chongwe River House , Tsika Island or our newest member of the family Kasaka River Lodge, we make sure your accommodation is a real home from home - a place where you can unwind, be yourself and make your own
