Set in an idyllic location along the banks of the Zambezi River, guests can lie back and enjoy the spectacular river views from their veranda, or head to the pool, complete with a timber sun deck and views of the Zambezi, for a relaxing dip.

Safari enthusiasts can head out on a game-viewing drive, by day or by night, to catch a glimpse of the local wildlife. Chiawa Camp also has two game-viewing hides from which to view and photograph the abundant elephant and hippo.
Round off a day of safari and relaxation with a delicious seasonal meal cooked on the banks of the Zambezi by a team of world-class chefs.

With guides trained first as naturalists, bush walks, game drives and canoeing are particularly fascinating. You’ll learn about the various birds and ecology of the park as you discover the miniscule details that you might otherwise miss.

Conservation
Conservation
One of Chiawa Camp’s noteworthy conservation successes is that it was the first operator to practice catch & release sport angling and they subsequently successfully lobbied the government to impose a ban on the killing of any fish species in the Lower Zambezi National Park (LZNP). This ban remains in place, and Chiawa is now lobbying for it to be extended to Zambia’s other national parks, and for better control on fishing and boating within the LZNP. Further to this, Chiawa provided strategy, funding and logistical support for a Cheetah repopulation program through the Zambia Wildlife Authority and Cheetah Conservation Fund of Namibia.
Community
Community
In February 2009, Chiawa Camp established and implemented the Lower Zambezi Conservation Collection in order to raise additional funding towards environmental education and conservation activity. This education is vital in protecting the fragile ecosystem of the Lower Zambezi through the people who live there.
Environment
Environment
Chiawa Camp was designed and built to the code of the Environmental Council of Zambia and Zambia Wildlife Authority. Their use of renewable materials in construction, locally purchased natural materials and employment of a strong Reduce/Reuse/Recycle ethos in camp has reduced the camp’s carbon footprint dramatically. Furthermore, Chiawa have reduced their power usage where possible, replacing their boat motors, reducing their emissions and fossil fuel consumption by 50% and installing LED bulbs throughout.
