Chongwe River House, a private safari lodge, located right on the banks of the Chongwe River which teems with wildlife, is the ideal base for private parties or families to enjoy game drives or boat safaris on the Zambezi. The private house sleeps eight people in four spacious double bedrooms, each with large king-sized beds and en-suite bathrooms. The exclusive-use of the large private veranda and pool lend themselves perfectly as viewing spots from which to admire the animals as well as the mountainous escarpment in the distance.
The enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides are incredibly keen to demonstrate the beauty and magnificence of the Lower Zambezi National Park on informative, entertaining game drives, walking safaris, and canoe trips whilst at the lodge. All activities and meals are tailored according to you by the hospitable staff and hosts.
What's so great about Chongwe River House is its superb location. Compared to other national parks and reserves, this one is practically empty - not of wildlife - but rather of tourists, making it feel like a real adventure in the middle of the wilderness. Even more, being able to watch nature at its finest from your own veranda is such privileged experience. No need to scour the park for wildlife, you've got it right on your doorstep! The staff are fantastic as well; they are so passionate about what they do and genuinely want you to experience the best of Zambia during your stay.
