Chiawa Camp Zambia

Chiawa Camp Zambia is one of Zambia’s premier luxury safari camps, offering a gentle and unhurried experience for wildlife and guests while allowing a diverse range of activities. Enjoy game drives to game walks for the energetic and thrill-seekers, canoeing, boating, and catch and release sport fishing – all in the company of Africa’s most refined and well-trained safari guides.

Family-owned and operated, Chiawa is a multi-award-winning camp, located on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, and is the pioneer of the Lower Zambezi National Park; the first camp to settle along the shores of this wildlife-rich riverine ecosystem.

At Chiawa Camp, all of the recently refurbished luxury safari tents offer spectacular views over the Zambezi River and its vast array of resident wildlife. Many of Africa's large mammals, such as elephants and hippos, and the big cats, lions and leopards occupy this gorgeous region of Zambia.

Tents I - VI were rebuilt for 2020/21, offering increased size and several new features, such as; an outdoor "bench wallow" that quickly and easily converts between a plunge pool or a recessed lounge area, while tents VII & VIII have been upgraded, to offer the same facilities and more.

Tent IX, the Safari Suite, has been open since June 2017 and is ideal for honeymooners, families or couples looking for more space, opulence and solitude. Slightly removed and secluded from the rest of the camp, the Safari Suite offers a king bedroom, a lounge (that converts attractively into a second bedroom for families), an interleading bathroom with a ball & claw bath and walk-in shower. The suite includes a massive deck with private dining facilities, a private pool and gazebo, and an outdoor shower.

Chiawa Camp also has a gorgeous pool and fitness shack, both overlooking the Zambezi, two well-placed viewing hides, as well as two viewing platforms for the use of all guests.

The creative culinary team at the Chiawa Camp ensure meals are of the highest standard, from seasonal menus developed and enhanced over time.

Along with Chiawa’s renowned dedication to its guests, staff, local communities and conservation, allow yourself to share in Chiawa’s passion, so that you can enjoy one of Africa’s finest safari camps and the wildlife adventure of a lifetime.

In the Soli language, Chiawa means ‘The one who shares’ – an appropriate name for such a camp that honours the local people and their traditions.
