Discover Chiawa Camp


Chiawa Camp is a multi award wining camp set on the banks of the Zambezi River in Lower Zambezi National Park. The first safari camp in this iconic park, Chiawa blends in effortlessly with its idyllic surroundings, perched under a grove of mahogany and acacia trees. It has a beautiful thatched lounge/bar area with two viewing decks with spectacular views of the Zambezi River.

The Lower Zambezi, a key national park of Zambia, lies between the rugged and dramatic Zambezi escarpment and the wide and spectacular Zambezi River. The Zambezi runs for 120 km through the park and with the protection of the Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe on the opposite side this is a haven for wildlife. There are many channels, lagoons, sandbanks and islands along the river and then open plains, woodland and bush areas behind the riverine strip

  • Game drives

    A fantastic way to experience the Lower Zambezi National Park. Game drives at Chiawa Camp are done either in the morning or afternoon and the game drive vehicles take a maximum of 4 people thus everyone gets a 'window seat'.

  • Walking Safari

    Starting off at dawn, the walks are led by seasoned guides and give one the chance to truly immerse one's self in nature.

  • Canoeing

    Canoe safaris are a fantastic way to make the most of the mighty Zambezi River. You will be accompanied by an experienced canoe guide.

  • Fishing

    The Zambezi River is a popular hotspot for fishing, an activity enjoyed by all! It is on a catch-and-release basis and provides hours of fun as well as some game viewing opportunities.

  • Boat Safari

    Not a keen fisherman but want to be out on the river? Then the boat safari is just for you. Spend some hours floating down the iconic Zambezi River, taking in the sights and sounds of the wilderness.

Located on the shores of the mighty Zambezi River, Lower Zambezi National Park naturally enjoys great sightings of crocodiles and hippos plus that of the large water monitor lizard. Also due to location, buffalo and elephant frequents cross between Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools and Lower Zambezi National Parks. Eland, zebra, wildebeest, waterbuck, bushbuck, and kudu have good populations, but impala is the most dominant species of antelope here. Grysbok and duiker are rarer but sighted sometimes. When it comes to carnivores, hyena, lion, and leopard are present. Wild dogs are less frequently seen.

Over 370 bird species have been sighted in this park. These species include bee-eaters, storks, herons, eagles, kingfishers (brown-hooded, giant, woodland, malachite, pied are common). On the river the egrets, cormorants, darters, fish eagles and storks are at play. African skimmers, ospreys, and spoonbills are some of the rare species here.
