Located on the banks of the Zambezi River, across the water from Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe, Chiawa Camp blends in effortlessly with its idyllic surroundings. This camp offers a “home away from home” feel with great friendly staff, first class guides and an unusually wide array of activities to enjoy during your stay to maximise your safari experience.
This area of the national park is home to a variety of grazers such as buffalo, elephant, zebra, antelope and giraffe, as well as the predators such as wild dog, lion, leopard and cheetah. The river offers unique viewings of hippo, crocodile and wading elephant and other grazers.
The camp often has elephants and other grazers in camp, with frequent visits from a large bull elephant nicknamed 'Shorty', due to his stumpy back legs. These are normal occurrences due to the camp position in the heart of this wildlife area and make for great photos from the safety of the main buildings, decks and your room.
This is the first camp to be established on the border of the national park and the Malama Chiefdom. The location is really spectacular and the sense of space and scale of the surrounding private area around the camp just adds to the intimacy and privacy felt when in camp.
