Reviews of Chongwe River Camp
They do not necessarily represent the views of Expert Africa.
We were welcomed to camp by Oliver the elephant who frequently wanders through camp!
When we first arrived, apart from the 2 of us, there was a party of 12 Italians who spoke little English. We were given a lot of support at dinner and sat with the staff, which made it easier for us.
We loved the location of the camp. Being able to sit outside our tent and look across to the other river bank and see elephant, hippo, crocodile, buffalo, warthogs and a variety of birds was spectacular. We had neither fished or canoed before, and really enjoyed these activities.
We were also taken to see a 6 month old orphaned elephant being cared for at Conservation Lower Zambezi, and shown around the site. It was interesting to hear about CLZ's education programme and how they teach local school children about the bush and poaching etc.
We were very lucky to have 2 walking trips with Duncan, the head guide, who was not only an excellent guide but a lovely person too.
