Chongwe House

Chongwe House offers complete privacy and luxury

Imagine a stately private home in the heart of the Zambian Lower Zambezi River Valley completely separate from other popular safari camps in the area and you have the impeccable Chongwe House for that one-of-a-kind Zambia safari experience. This is the Time + Tide special offer safari house is unlike any other lodge in the region and offers complete privacy and luxury in a stand-alone private home on the banks of the mighty Zambezi. 

Book a holiday package to Zambia for your family and close friends and choose Chongwe House, a double-level abode with its natural design and furniture created from an old winterthorn tree, its river pebble décor and its large swimming pool. 

Four to eight people can stay here in comfortable accommodation in four large ensuite bedrooms with outside bathtubs and showers, roomy inside and outside lounges and cosy dining areas for long evenings featuring exquisite foods and wines. Chongwe House is an award-winning safari house fit for those who love their comforts in a natural setting, where elephant families graze and swim and where Fish eagles soar above lonely leopards. 

Time + Tide Chongwe House is part of the Chongwe River treasures, its mountain backdrop part of the lush wilderness too where conservation is key to the Valley’s survival.  River activities are central to all game-viewing adventures so get ready to canoe for hours watching animals and birds, mind-blowing scenery and huge old trees drift past. 

Get ready to boat cruise and fish for tigerfish trophies and enjoy sundowners on a boat heading nowhere in particular but in the midst of an unforgettable paradise. Game drives are ever present in the early mornings and evenings to reveal surprising, mesmerising interactions between diverse animals. Spend hours in the secret wildlife hide and spot some of the nearly 400 bird species, wild dogs and bushbabies too.  

Families with young kids will love Chongwe House and the private hostess, game rangers and staff. Watch hippos, elephants, warthogs, impala, and other game from your private deck and enjoy all game-viewing activities until dark. The house is modern yet blends into the surrounding wilderness and features so much elegance and such good food that guests make a plan to return.
