Indulge in attentive yet unpretentious, personalised service, fabulous cuisine and fantastic tents with spectacular views of the Zambezi and its resident wildlife. All this in a beautiful setting with leopards, lions, elephants, hippos and other wildlife as your neighbours. Along with Chiawa's renowned dedication to its guests, staff, local communities and conservation, share in Chiawa's passion and experience so that you can enjoy one of Africa's very finest safari camps and the wildlife adventure of a lifetime.
Chiawa Camp blends in effortlessly with its idyllic surroundings and provides a retreat which guests are invited to make their home away from home, where guests receive the friendliest of welcomes, the biggest of smiles and where guests, who leave as friends to return time and again, experience the very best in Africa.
On the banks of the Zambezi River, under a grove of evergreen Mahogany trees, Chiawa Camp holds the prime position in the heart of Zambia’s Lower Zambezi National Park. A stunning thatched lounge and bar area with upstairs viewing deck provides one of the best views of the Zambezi whilst after enjoying Chiawa’s renowned cuisine on the alfresco dining veranda; one can relax by the open camp fire with a cocktail in hand to reminisce of the day's adventures before retiring to the tents, each a sanctuary of luxury and peace to dream about what tomorrow may bring.
The tents all have timber floors and verandas with excellent views and are accessed by paths running behind them to maximise privacy. All share ample comforts, conveniences and unexpected luxuries such as 24-hour lighting and charging facilities, hot and cold running water, king-size beds, Egyptian cotton linen, his-and-hers washbasins, indoor and outdoor showers and ball-and-claw baths complemented by Molton Brown amenities. These tents set a new standard for Zambia in bush-luxury; however they still retain the rustic and unpretentious feel that Chiawa is so well loved for. Tents VII, VIII and IX all overlook the ‘dry riverbed’ with quartering views of the Zambezi River whereas Tents I and VI face the Zambezi directly
Chiawa Camp is renowned for its excellent cuisine, oft described as an Afro/Euro fusion, in which even the most demanding palates are catered for. Chiawa’s imaginative executive chefs ensure meals are of the highest standard, that they are prepared with the freshest of ingredients and with the utmost of care.
