Although not the first activity you would think of in the Lower Zambezi, the walking safaris at Chongwe are especially good. Adventure through the north at the foothills of the escarpment near the waterfalls to try and find the rarely seen Samango or Blue Monkeys, Klipspringers and Bush pigs.
Chongwe is technically within the GMA (game management area) of the Lower Zambezi but don’t let that put you off. Its location is famous for an abundance of wildlife, which means you don’t actually have to leave camp to be in the middle of the action. From the herds of elephants who visit the river and floodplain to the high numbers of wild dog in the area, the park has no fences and the animals know no boundaries! If you do want more time in the park you can easily arrange for your excellent guide to take you on a full day excursion with a delicious packed lunch where you can spend endless hours tracking down the wildlife to your hearts content!
Chongwe has a variety of different rooming options. Each tent is beautifully decorated however if you are there for a special occasion or as part of a family group why not consider upgrading to the suites and the house? With private staff and guides you can follow your own schedule, relax in privacy and have the flexibility to do as you wish when you wish. Treat yourself to something special and enjoy the luxury of becoming an even bigger VIP.
