Families, adults and larger private groups
This two story, four bedroom property is tucked away from the rest of the world, on its own stretch of the Chongwe River in The Lower Zambezi National Park. This private house is the perfect spot for families and groups of friends to enjoy their safari experience. Chongwe House is a one-of-a-kind property which sleeps 4 – 8 guests and features open air bedrooms and bathrooms as well as its own private pool and large living areas.
The Lower Zambezi National Park offers a huge variety of different activities, from both boating, walking and night safaris. It is also well known for its world-class tiger fishing. Float down the river with your guide weaving in and out of pods of hippos. This is a great location for families, with a variety of extra activities to be done within the local communities, including cultural village tours and trips to local charity projects.
Throughout your stay in this beautiful property, you will have your own private guide and chef, allowing for more flexibility with timings and choices of activity. Your private chef will provide you with a huge range of different meals, with the majority of ingredients coming from local suppliers as well as from their own vegetable garden.
Much like the rest of the properties along the Chongwe River, Chongwe House is well known for its resident herds of elephants that roam around the edge of the river. Enjoy laying by the pool whilst watching an array of different species both drinking from and wading through the river.
For the ultimate Zambian safari experience, carry on your journey with Time + Tide to some of their other properties in other locations in Zambia, these would include going to the iconic South Luangwa National Park.
