River-View Tented Camp
Chiawa Camp rests peacefully on the banks of the Zambezi River, in a grove of mahogany and acacia trees.The construction is essentially of natural materials, and is designed to ensure the camp’s idyllic setting can be fully appreciated. Chiawa Camp is a must for any visit to Zambia. Superb accommodation, magnificent game viewing and scenery, and a large variety of activities are complemented by a modern infrastructure and attentive, professional staff.
All tents are under thatch, have en-suite facilities with hot and cold running water, twin or double beds, insect screens and solar powered lighting, all on a raised timber deck with private veranda. Access paths to the tents run through a grove of Mahogany trees behind them, maximizing privacy. The spacious lounge and bar area has an observation platform built into its roof providing one of the best views in the valley. Of course the dining area also looks out onto the river and the animals which regularly come to drink and feed at and near the camp.
Activities are led by some of Africa’s most experienced guides and you may choose from day and night game drives, nature walks, game viewing by pontoon boat, canoeing, and fishing (catch and release only).
A day in the life of your safari starts with tea or coffee delivered to your tent just before sunrise. Then you meet by the campfire for a light breakfast and depart for morning safari activity. Return to camp and a brunch buffet with optional full English breakfast is served at midday. Enjoy a siesta or relax in one of the observation hides until afternoon tea which is served with sweet and savoury snacks before the afternoon activity which usually culminates in an exhilarating night drive before returning to camp. Drinks and snacks are offered at the bar or by the camp fire until a four course dinner is served. \
