Time + Tide Chongwe Lodge, Lower Zambezi National Park is made up of 9 classic safari tents, as well as a stunning 1 and 2 bedroom suite. Each tent boasts its own open air spacious bathrooms.
The tents natural design fits in well with the backdrop of the camp, reflecting its diverse location. Each room has its own outdoor sitting area, right alongside the edge of the hippo-filled river. Enjoy sitting and reading your book in the afternoons whilst watching the almighty river life go by.
With a swimming pool not far from the main area, you can enjoy cooling off in the midday heat in the summer months or enjoy relaxing by the pool whilst watching the playful vervet monkeys fight for the last remaining pods from the winter thorn tree.
The Cassia (1 bedroom) and Albida (2 bedroom) Suites are located near to the main lodge; however, they offer the option of pure privacy. Both suites have their own plunge pools sat right on the riverbanks as well as offering private dining experiences in the comfort of your rooms. Along with private dining, you will also be provided with your own private vehicle and guide, allowing true flexibility with your choice of activities.
The camp can be reached by a leisurely boat journey along the river which is a great way to arrive at camp for the first time, alternatively, it is only a fifteen minute drive from the local airstrip.
