Chongwe River House on the Lower Zambezi ...
Chongwe River House, Zambia.
Chongwe River House is located in an excellent game viewing area lying between the mighty Zambezi River and the Zambezi escarpment is known as the Lower Zambezi National Park.
Occupying an area of staggering 4000sq metres the park is home to the bull elephants, big cats and many species of antelope that this area is well known for and can easily satisfy the appetite of the most avid game watcher. The riverene areas of the park provide extensive birding opportunities and fishing activities.
The Zambezi River is 1.7km wide at the point it meets a quiet tributary called The Chongwe River and here sandy islands bursting with reed beds provide excellent feeding grounds for the land and airborne wildlife. Gliding past these islands in a mokoro smoothly paddled by one of the experienced guides provides a unique vantage point to watch the animals and birds.
Standing on the banks of the Chongwe River, close to where it meets the Zambezi, lies Chongwe River House. It is a totally private, sumptuously comfortable residence having both excellent game viewing on the river and a breathtaking vista of the dramatic escarpment, perfect for a luxury safari.
The house can sleep eight guests and is ideal as base for a family or group of friends wanting a safari of total privacy, personal attention and luxury. Sensitively built and furnished from materials taken from the nature all around it, the house is equipped with four spacious double bedrooms each with a king sized bed swathed in acres of netting and having a view of the bush or the escarpment. The en-suite bathrooms have a waterfall shower and basins carved from wood and white marble and here too guests can enjoy fantastic views as they bathe!
Chongwe River House is fully staffed with its own house manager, private chef and guide totally dedicated to create and deliver the best experiences of dining, relaxation and game viewing - in fact your tailor made dream safari. Being totally private the plans of the day are flexible and individual to the group’s or individual guests’ needs and timetable.
This is never more important than when taking into consideration the needs of children and the total adaptability of your private chef for example can eradicate any issues with meals or mealtimes to ensure a stress free holiday. Likewise the privacy enables total freedom concerning their boisterousness and the staff are more than happy to entertain their young guests by playing games or allowing them to help in the food preparation. Whilst this is an ideal location for families there is a minimum age of seven years which has to be taken into consideration.
In addition to the private guide, guests at Chongwe River House have exclusive use of vehicles, canoes and a boat together with the services of an armed scout for those who wish to venture out on a walking safari. Equipment is available to try your hand at fishing and you may be lucky to land a famous tiger fish – quite a memory! A stay here is tailor made both inside and outside the House.
For those that prefer to relax on the deck shaded by a huge winterthorn tree with a cool drink no opportunities will be forgone as it is common to see elephants crossing the river and impala, kudo and the like will all come to drink at your own private viewing gallery.
