"One of Africa's Top Ten safari camps" according to Conde Nast, Chiawa is set on a stunning location in the scenic Lower Zambezi National Park, and was the first of only a privileged few to commence operating safaris in this unique area. Owned & run by the Cumings family, Chiawa Camp is renowned for its personalized, excellent service and its expert, African-born guides. Spacious safari tents on timber platforms with incredible views are complemented by a peaceful thatched lounge area with upstairs viewing platform, and a viewing hide in a mahogany tree. Numerous wildlife species including elephant, lion, leopard, hippo, buffalo, antelope, and occasionally wild dog, are seen in and around camp, from the river or in the bush.
