Time + Tide - Chongwe Camp

Lower Zambezi

Dotted along the forested riverbanks, Time + Tide Chongwe Camp is surrounded by wild beauty. Set at the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers against a beautiful mountainous backdrop, the camp offers some incredible views.

A grove of towering winterthorn trees creates a shady haven for the camp below. Guests aren't the only ones that enjoy them though - elephants frequently wander through camp to feed on the many seed pods dropped from above. Each tent offers panoramic views along the Chongwe River. Sit out front in comfortable lounge chairs and watch the abundant wildlife visiting the banks to drink and graze on the lush grasses.
