Chongwe River House

Chongwe River House in the Lower Zambezi is an exclusive-use house, perfect for families and small groups, that is run independently from Chongwe River Camp. With its own private chef, butler, ranger, and management team, this quirky camp allows you the autonomy to choose your own activities at your own pace.

We can’t think of anything as special as sitting in the pool and soaking up the wilderness while watching herds of elephants and the predators that have made the Lower Zambezi famous.

There are four uniquely designed rooms and beautiful central areas, designed with natural materials that add to the overall character of this luxury property. Chongwe River House is a stunning house, but on the downside, we find that the great design sometimes trumps homey comfort.

Only 15 minutes from Royal Airport, the Chongwe River House is conveniently situated and combines well with Luangwa House for a great small group itinerary.
