Featured Safari Destination by GURU
Dotted along the tranquil banks of the Chongwe River under a spreading riverine forest is Time + Tide Chongwe Safaris. Offering the best views in all the Lower Zambezi and a warm welcome that feels like family, this is your new home away from home.
Private and exclusive, the Time + Tide Chongwe Suites offer sublime luxury and service against a beautiful wild setting. Nestled under ancient winterthorn trees at the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers, the one bedroom Cassia and two bedroom Albida Suites are perfect for honeymooners or families and friends travelling together.
Offering an oasis of tranquillity and privacy, the suites allow you to reconnect with each other in a meaningful way.
Slow down and ease into the rhythm of life in the bush together. Watch as elephants wade across the river right in front of your suite, as you listen to vervet monkeys scampering in the canopy above. Feel the warm breezes drifting past, as you slip into your very own plunge pool with river views.
Time + Tide Chongwe is flanked by the escarpment on one side and the mighty Zamb the mighty Zambezi River on the other. The Lower Zambezi National Park is an extraordinary wilderness, where lush channels branch from larger rivers and weave through ancient forests, creating a haven for wildlife and birdlife.
The region is especially wonderful for large, relaxed herds of elephants, diverse birdlife and sightings of endangered wild dogs, and other African predators.
Despite the remote and tranquil setting, the culinary team creates extraordinary meals that satisfy the soul and delight the palette. Designed to celebrate local ingredients, expect dishes such as perfectly grilled meats, handmade pasta, elegant desserts and fresh salads made with seasonal fruits and vegetables.
Whether you’re dining under the stars, in the main area or in the privacy of your suite, the attention to detail and warm hospitality will create a wonderful experience.

A mere 45-minute flight from Nairobi will find you in the midst of the Masai Mara at Ngare Serian; an intimate little camp: set along the banks of the Mara River, where the sounds of rushing water are punctuated only by languorous laughing hippo and animals visiting to drink.
It lies in the private Mara North Conservancy, and the beauty of this location is that only 10 other camps have access to it – so the feeling of having your own personal piece of Africa is a luxury that we have in spades.
Bisate Lodge, adjacent to Volcanoes National Park, combines the bucket-list gorilla trek with a pioneering vision of reforestation and community partnership. Bisate is located in the natural amphitheatre of an eroded volcanic cone, with dramatic views of the peaks of the Bisoke and Karisimbi volcanoes rearing up through Afro-alpine forests.
Encountering one of the gorilla groups in the nearby Volcanoes National Park is a unique experience.
Luxurious Vumbura Plains lies in an area that is a mix of water and dry land. The wildlife is diverse, so that both land and water activities on vehicles, mekoro and boats deliver an all-round African safari experience.
Vumbura Plains comprises two satellite camps, each with its own main area with an expansive vista across the floodplains.
Guests will be able to enjoy their own private plunge pool and outdoor under cover sala/day rest area.
