Captivated by the beauty and wilderness of the Lower Zambezi, Chris and his father set up a camp on the banks of the Chongwe River in 1992. Initially drawn to the blend of excellent fishing, plentiful wildlife and immense natural beauty, the father and son duo envisioned sharing the region through a tourism enterprise. Over time, it grew from a simple overnight campsite to the award-winning, luxury collection of today.
Chris is deeply involved with Conservation Lower Zambezi and is instrumental in the development and conservation of the Chiawa Partnership Park, an area bordering the Lower Zambezi National Park. With a past in anti-poaching, Chris’ love of the natural world is felt throughout the Chongwe safari experience.
This spectacular region is famous for its canoeing safaris and water activities. It is also widely known as one of the best places to catch (and release) a tiger fish or two. For wildlife photographers, few places compare thanks to the unique combination of rivers and the escarpment.
