Enjoy the best views in the Lower Zambezi at this family- and elephant-friendly camp
Venture to the edge of a mighty river in the shadow of a mountain escarpment, where you’ll feel right at home under a shady grove of trees. Wake up from a peaceful nap to the sound of an elephant rubbing against the side of your tent as it lumbers past.

Dotted along the riverbank, Time + Tide Chongwe is set at the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers which wind through the forested valley, creating a haven for wildlife like lions, leopards and wild dog.

Its nine classic tents are designed to make the most of what Mother Nature provided. 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.

Every day our team serves up satisfying meals, your favourite drinks and big smiles in the relaxed main lounge. The wildlife hide is great for photography, and for spotting rare nocturnal creatures.

The small number of camps in Lower Zambezi National Park keep it free from overcrowding. The area is best known for its impressive variety of safari activities—enjoy game drives and walking safaris on land, take to the rivers on a boat cruise or canoeing safari, or to try your hand at tiger fishing.
