Chongwe River House


Enjoy spectacular game viewing directly from the swimming pool at this luxury riverside camp in South Luangwa National Park.

Chongwe River House is a luxury four bedroom hotel located on the banks of the Lower Zambezi River in Zambia. It offers an authentic African safari escape with walls designed like tree branches, furniture made from a single winterthorn tree and a wall-less lounge offering extraordinary river views. Guests can enjoy the luxury of dedicated safari guides and a private chef.

About Chongwe River House

Chongwe River House is an unusual hotel that embraces the calming effect of nature. Its rooms are designed like branches, the ceiling adorned with colourful pebbles sourced from the river and the main room has a tinkling water feature and incredible views over the mountains and river. There’s no wall to the front of this room so it opens directly onto a large deck. The dining room table, bar, coffee table and couches have all been intricately carved from a single winterthorn tree. Guests can look forward to exciting game viewing within 4,000 square kilometres of South Luangwa National Park and there are private vehicles, boats, canoes and walking safari guides at your disposal. The kids can join the chef in baking delicious lion paw-print cookies while you spend your afternoons on the deck and enjoy fantastic game viewing with elephants at the watering hole that’s as good as any game drive.
