Time + Tide Chongwe Camp
There is a corner of the Lower Zambezi National Park where the rushing waters of the Zambezi meet the tranquil Chongwe channel. Curved ox-bow lagoons shimmer in the heat and spiky Winterthorn woodlands stretch endlessly to the horizon. Here lies Time + Tide Chongwe Camp.
A policy of non-intrusive wildlife enjoyment and low environmental impact has helped to make the Lower Zambezi valley one of southern Africa’s premier game viewing destinations.

Each has a panoramic view along the Chongwe River, a spacious open-air bathroom, a porch with comfortable lounge chairs, and features local textiles and handcrafted furniture. Their team serves up satisfying meals, your favourite drinks and big smiles in the relaxed dining area. Here, you can indulge yourself with brunch, freshly baked treats with tea in the afternoon, pre-dinner drinks or a three-course dinner around a crackling fire. A large canvas roof suspended from the trees houses a bar and lounge, the perfect spot from which to watch the constant procession of animals in and the camp. Down on the water’s edge, traditional safari chairs surround the fireplace where you can congregate in the evening before eating al fresco under the glittering stars.
