Chiawa is a multi-award-winning Camp located along the banks of the mighty Zambezi in the Lower Zambezi National Park. Chiawa is one of Zambia’s best safari camps situated opposite the Mana Pools National Park of Zimbabwe. Here it is all about the wildlife, the bush and the river.

The Experience

At Chiawa Camp the activities offered are unusually varied; game drives, night drives, walking, boating, canoeing, and fishing in the company of Africa’s finest guides are all on offer. Close-up encounters with Elephant, Hippo and Crocodile are a real possibility and you will remember these encounters forever. There is plenty of other game to be seen on the banks as well. It is these river activities on the Zambezi that really differentiate the Lower Zambezi from the Luangwa River. There are also two viewing hides and two viewing platforms for the use of all guests.

The Accommodation

There are 9 very comfortable tented rooms all with ball & claw roll top baths, double basins, indoor and outdoor showers, “bench wallow” plunge pools and split-level decking offering excellent views of the mighty Zambezi River. One of these tented rooms is much larger and suitable for honeymooners or families where the lounge can be converted into a smaller twin room. There is a viewing deck above the lounge and bar area offering some of the best views of the Zambezi River. Chiawa Camp also has a pool and fitness shack. There is also the new Chiawa Camp’s Star Bed in which to spend a night under the stars!
