Chongwe River House: video gallery


Chongwe River House: picture gallery


Chongwe River House is spectacularly designed!
It stands on a quiet stretch of the Chongwe River, overlooking the Lower Zambezi N.P.
The house itself consists of four bedrooms and plenty of space.
Dining here is to your schedule: your personal chef will agree meals and times with you...
... after which you can relax in the lounge, enjoying super views over the river.
The house was built without a straight line anywhere, using mostly natural materials...
... and it includes many corners in which to relax.
The kitchen and bar are always open - drinks are included here.
During the evening and night, the lighting is electric and very atmospheric.
Amazing pieces of wood have been built into the very fabric of the house!
The house is fully-staffed, from the pool attendant to the house chef and private guide.
The pool provides great views as it overlooks the Chongwe River...
... and makes a great venue for lunch...
... but to be alone, there is always space: retreat to a comfortable private terrace.
Chongwe River House is unique: the ultimate African retreat for a family or small group.
