Chiawa Camp

Chiawa Camp - excellent management, by owners Grant and Lindsay Cumings and by manager Jason. Atmosphere was warm and welcoming, all staff treated guests in the same warm, friendly manner.

Only difficulty was the monkeys were able to open the zippers and get into the rooms, causing havoc in the room and stealing all medications, pills etc. They are working on solving this problem.

Loved being able to boat on the river, from sunset cruises to fishing to canoing.

Chiawa Camp still leads the way.

This was our fourth visit to this camp which says everything.

I cannot fault it in any way and can only say it is excellent in everything it is and does.

Chiawa Camp review

A delightful stay at Chiawa. Wonderful opportunity for canoeing down the Zambeze - if you have the nerve! Great guides too, although it might have been nice to have stayed with the same one throughout.

The game here was much better than at Old Mondoro, but not as good as at South Luangua.

Chiawa Camp review

The beauty of the setting and the standard of accommodation at Chiawa - plus the dedication of the married couple running the camp - made this a very special experience indeed.

We had opted for one of the new "Superior" tents - which was well worth the extra cost (I cannot stress this enough - they are of a fantastic quality, and appeared to be on a very different level from the standard tents).

The thoughtfulness of the management of Chiawa was also exceptional - ie the meals in surprising locations - as was the flexibility of the service (there was never any question of a guest not getting the activity they requested) and the variety of of activities on offer (from canoeing, cruising and fishing as well as the "usual" game-drives and walks).

Chiawa also serves wonderful food. We would judge this to be the most purely enjoyable three nights on safari we've ever had.
