Time + Tide - Chongwe House

Lower Zambezi

Time + Tide Chongwe House blends effortlessly into the tranquil river setting. The design's flowing curves and bends evolve into open living spaces that celebrate the surrounding wilderness. Waterfall showers, private open air bathtubs, furniture carved from a winterthorn tree and ceilings studded with river pebbles complete the inspired design. Throughout your stay, a dedicated staff and guiding team will ensure your experience is wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable.
