Discover a hidden gem nestled along the serene banks of the Chongwe River, embraced by a lush riverine forest. Welcome to Time and Tide Chongwe Camp, where you'll find the best views in all of Lower Zambezi and a warm welcome that feels like family. Consider this your new home away from home.

Set against a backdrop of breathtaking wilderness, Chongwe Camp provides an authentic and immersive experience in the heart of the African wilderness.. Find yourself embraced by the ancient winterthorn trees, where the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers merge. Whether you're a honeymooner seeking a romantic getaway or a family and friends embarking on a shared adventure, our one-bedroom Cassia and two-bedroom Albida Suites are perfectly designed to cater to your needs.

Step into a tranquil oasis, offering privacy and serenity that allows you to reconnect with your loved ones in a truly meaningful way. Embrace the unhurried rhythm of life in the bush together. Marvel at the graceful sight of elephants wading through the river just a stone's throw from your suite. Listen to the playful scampering of vervet monkeys in the overhead canopy. Feel the gentle caress of warm breezes as you slip into your own private plunge pool, mesmerised by the captivating river views.

At Chongwe Camp, safari tents are designed to blend harmoniously with the natural surroundings while offering comfort and convenience.

Each tent is strategically positioned along the tranquil banks of the Chongwe River, ensuring breathtaking views and a serene ambiance. The tents are nestled under the shade of towering trees, allowing you to feel truly connected to nature. The sounds of the river and the wildlife will be your lullaby as you drift off to sleep each night.

Inside the safari tents, you'll find a spacious and well-appointed living area that combines rustic charm with modern amenities. The interiors are tastefully decorated, reflecting the rich cultural heritage and natural beauty of the region. Comfortable beds with soft linens ensure a restful night's sleep, while en-suite bathrooms provide hot showers and all the necessary amenities.

Step outside your tent and discover your private veranda, where you can relax in a comfortable chair and absorb the stunning vistas that surround you. Observe the gentle flow of the river, listen to the symphony of bird songs, and feel the gentle breeze rustling through the trees.

One of the highlights of staying in our safari tents is the feeling of being fully immersed in the wilderness. From the privacy of your tent, you may spot elephants, hippos, and other wildlife grazing on the riverbanks or drinking from the water. It's an awe-inspiring experience that brings you closer to the natural world.

While the tents offer a rustic charm, they are not lacking in modern conveniences. We ensure that your stay is comfortable and hassle-free, providing amenities such as solar-powered lighting, charging stations for your electronic devices, and attentive staff who are always available to assist you.

Time and Tide Chongwe is embraced by the mighty Zambezi River on one side and the majestic escarpment on the other. This is where the Lower Zambezi National Park unfolds—a remarkable wilderness where lush channels intertwine with ancient forests, forming a haven for wildlife and birdlife.
