Chiawa Camp is situated on the banks of the Zambezi River, beneath a grove of mahogany trees in the heart of Zambia’s game-rich Lower Zambezi National Park. Opened by the Cumings family in 1989, Chiawa was the first camp in the park and is still run by a member of the family, Grant Cumings, who is very hands on. Over the years, the camp has evolved in size and comfort to a high degree of understated luxury.

Our view of Chiawa Camp

In many ways, we think Chiawa is one of the best, and best-run, camps in Africa. The service and food are top-notch, with a team who tend to go out of their way to make everyone feel comfortable – and left us feeling that nothing was too much trouble. The camp manages to be luxurious, while still feeling homely and welcoming, a balance that can be difficult to get right. A good complement of excellent guides and a flexible attitude towards activities means that guests will usually get to do what they want, more or less when they want. We love it.
