Chiawa Camp in the incredible Lower Zambezi National Park is Zambia's premier luxury safari camp and offers unusually varied activities such as game drives, walking, canoeing, boating and angling in the company of Africa's finest guides.

Chiawa Camp blends in effortlessly with its idyllic surroundings and provides a retreat which guests are invited to make their home away from home, where guests receive the friendliest of welcomes, the biggest of smiles and where guests, who leave as friends to return time and again, experience the very best in Africa.

Situated on the banks of the Zambezi River, under a grove of evergreen Mahogany trees, Chiawa Camp holds the prime position in the heart of Zambia's Lower Zambezi National Park. It is at this very spot where the Cumings Family first explored this area for themselves decades ago, where David Livingstone had ventured through nearly 150 years previously, and where in 1989 they created the very first photo safari operation in the Lower Zambezi National Park - and through their efforts what has since become one of Africa's most desirable, sought after safari destinations.

A stunning thatched lounge/bar area with upstairs viewing deck provides one of the best views of the Zambezi whilst after enjoying Chiawa's renowned cuisine on the al-fresco dining veranda, one can relax by the open camp fire with a cocktail in hand to reminisce of the day's adventures before retiring to the tents, each a sanctuary of luxury and peace to dream about what tomorrow may bring.

The tents all have timber floors and verandas with excellent views and are accessed by paths running behind them to maximise privacy. All share ample comforts, conveniences and unexpected luxuries such as 24/7 lighting and charging facilities (220v UK plugs), 24/7 hot & cold running water, king size beds, Egyptian cotton linens, his & hers washbasins, indoor and outdoor showers and ball & claw baths complemented by Molton Brown amenities.

Chiawa Camp is renowned for its excellent cuisine, oft described as an Afro/Euro fusion, in which even the most demanding palates are catered for. Chiawa's imaginative Executive Chefs ensure meals are of the highest standard, that they are prepared with the freshest of ingredients and with the utmost of care.

Dinners are usually 4 courses, table d'hote, always offered with a choice of main course, and served under the stars by the camp fire or, if you are visiting during the full moon, on a sand bar in the middle of the Zambezi.
