Chiawa Camp
 
Situated in the Lower Zambezi National Park, this remote camp is family owned and run by the Cumings family. Chiawa translates to ‘place of rest’ and the fantastic staff are all skilled in faultless customer service making each guest feel special.
Chiawa Camp consists of eight superior tented suites, each set on its own split level elevated timber platform each either with panoramic views of the wide, slow moving Zambezi River or the dry riverbed that feeds down to the Zambezi and where animals are regularly seen. The tents are insect proof and have twin or super king size beds, luxurious furnishings and 24hr electricity and complimentary wifi, which to maintain the peace in camp can only be used in the privacy of guest rooms. The magnificent en-suite bathrooms which include an indoor and outdoor shower and wc are partially open to the river which can be seen from the comfort of the beautiful ball and claw Victorian bath.
A recent addition to camp is the Safari Suite, a private and spacious sanctuary re-defining the luxurious accommodation in Zambia. A space of almost 220 square metres comprises a spacious bedroom, luxurious bathroom with views to the Zambezi, a lounge complete with sofas, arm chairs and daybeds that can be converted to beds for children if accommodating a family. Outside there is a shower, dining area, lounge, private fireplace and a 16-square meter plunge pool to while away the hours in.
Chiawa serves excellent food often in surprising locations. These can include champagne bush breakfasts, outdoor barbecues under the stars and lunch or private dinners on a specially adapted riverboat. There is a pool and spacious lounge with upstairs viewing deck, complete with astronomy telescopes and wildlife spotting scopes and the environment in camp is always sociable. The campfire, the bar and relaxation area are perfect places to regale guests and staff alike with stories of the day’s activities.
One of the principal attractions of the Lower Zambezi is the wide range of game viewing activities that can be enjoyed. The highly expert guides will take you walking with an armed scout and tracking animals on foot through the bush learning a huge amount about the flora and fauna as you go. You might like to spend the latter part of the afternoon paddling a stable canoe on the Zambezi watching animals coming down to drink and interact by the water’s edge. Wonderful open-topped vehicles would also take you further afield and at night a spotlight is used to see nocturnal creatures such as civet, porcupine and leopard on the prowl. Anyone who wants to try their hands at tiger fishing might catch a fish up to 20lbs and be assured of a good fight! A strict catch-and-release policy is observed.
