Perched on the edge of a tributary of the mighty Zambezi River, Chongwe River Camp sits on the western boundary of the Lower Zambezi National Park, nestled between a grove of the Winterthorn trees - it is easily one of the most picturesque camps in the lower Zambezi valley.
The camp consists of nine open and airy Meru-style tents with en-suite bathrooms. For families or couples who wish to spread out a little more, there are the elegant Albida and Cassia suites that have their own private lounges and plunge pools (perfect for those hot summer days).
There are numerous activities with which to keep you entertained; from fishing (strictly catch and release basis), boat rides, canoeing, day and night safaris and there is even a walking safari - which comes highly recommended to guests who enjoy a good stroll and wish to connect with nature.
Mchenja Bush Camp is situated on the banks of the Luangwa River in South Luangwa National Park and is the only bush camp that operates during the wet season, which is the perfect time to enjoy boat cruises down the river, spotting wildlife along the way.
Accommodation comprises five unique tents, each with a private deck that opens out onto the Luangwa River, the lifeblood of the park. Mchenja is one of the best equipped lodges in South Luangwa and ensures a private and intimate stay. Stay cool in the sparkling swimming pool during the day and in the shade under the thatched lodge where you can spot game with a cocktail close by at all times.
Experience a boat cruise down the waterways and if you are feeling adventurous then join a walking safari through South Luangwa National Park, one of Africa's greatest game reserves. These safaris recreate the sense of 'wildest Africa' as you track animals across rivers and through the bush. This gives you the amazing opportunity to see, smell, hear and feel Africa on foot.
