Chongwe River Suites is situated on the Chongwe and Zambezi confluence with a view of the escarpment to the North. It is on the finest site on offer and has been in reserve for a special project. Custom designed tents and organic Ferro walling interspersed with natural wood.
The en-suite deluxe suites are separate octagonal tents with gauze windows on seven sides with inter-leading pathways and gardens.
The bathrooms have a canvas roof but are open to the bush with a bath, double basins, and double shower. One shower is undercover and one is open air.
Guests are welcome to join the main camp for meals or a drink or remain in their suite. The exclusivity is optional.
If just two people want the whole suite, there is a suite rate that ensures exclusive use of the whole facility but does not guarantee a private guide.
The two rooms share a lounge and dining area appointed with fine furniture and antiques that overlook a private pool and the Zambezi.
Activities include game drives, including night drives in the National Park or along the Chongwe River, walking safaris, cruising, fishing and canoeing.
Game drives are conducted day and night in the park. The likelihood of not seeing one other vehicle on a four-hour drive is very good. All guides, when qualifying for the area, are lectured extensively on etiquette.
Chongwe River Suites specializes in walking safaris, affording the time to learn about the not so obvious secrets of the bush. Walking adds an extra dimension to your game viewing, and also gives the chance to appreciate the beauty and tranquillity of the bush.
The Lower Zambezi is renowned for superb canoeing safaris - the most unobtrusive way to encounter big game.
