Chongwe River Camp
Discover Fantastic Tigerfishing
As one of the oldest camps in Zambia’s Lower Zambezi Valley, Chongwe River Camp is a perfect destination to enjoy the combined delights of a safari with fantastic tigerfishing on the Lower Zambezi River.
For Passionate Anglers
Chongwe River Camp has had a long history as a fishing camp and owner, Chris Liebenberg, a passionate conservationist and fisherman, has raised the standard of the camp enormously to attract international fisherman and safari goers from around the globe.
With five very competent specialist fishing guides and three dedicated fishing boats you will be sure of the best chance of catching lots of fine fish.
A Simple and Comfortable Camp
Chongwe River Camp is a simple but comfortable camp with nine tented chalets. Each has en-suite facilities and a private verandah overlooking the river. The camp has a plunge pool, and a rustic bar.
There is also the Albida suite which comprises two deluxe rooms with a lounge/dining area and shared pool. It’s a great spot for a family or friends travelling together.
Meals are served outside, on the banks of the Chongwe under albia trees, or in the bush overlooking the Zambezi River. It is an ideal location for not only fisherman looking to catch their first tigerfish but also superb if they are travelling with a non-fishing friend or family.
While staying at Chongwe River Camp guests can enjoy excellent wildlife viewing on both day and night game drives in open 4×4 vehicles, or by foot. Canoeing on the Zambezi River is also a great way to see the birds and mammals along the riverbank. For those who want a more relaxed option, sundowner cruises can be organised.
