Having spent three nights at Old Mondoro, Chiawa's sister camp, we were definitely excited about our four night stay here. We were not disappointed!! And as with Old Mondoro the wild life viewing is unbelievable but once again it was the staff that blew us away. Their knowledge & expertise is inspiring. Our hosts Anita & Peter certainly do listen... More

Chiawa camp was our last stop in Zambia. After three weeks and six other camps we can honestly say we saved the best till last. Chiawa is a stunning camp in one of the most beautiful areas in Zambia the Lower Zambezi National Park. From the moment we transferred by boat from their sister camp Old Mondoro to the moment...

We were overwhelmed by the service we received at Chiawa. It is one of the most amazing trips we have ever taken, the camp has spectacular views, an abundance of animals that visit the camp on a daily basis (sometimes the elephants visits delayed our 5 star meal.) and is family owned & operated which gives it that personal touch....

Our time in Chiawa was truly incredible. There are so many things to do at this camp. But you can also just stay in camp and enjoy the river and the animals without anyone else around you. Very peaceful. Several times we had elephants right in the middle of the camp which was exciting. And it was fun to watch... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights in Chiawa Camp in August. This was our third camp in Zambia and we were impressed with everything about this camp. The staff work very hard to make sure each guest is having the experience they want to have. There are a variety of ways to experience the animals, and we particularly enjoyed... More

Excellent accomodations with wi-fi in the tents, great food and a wonderful choir. The staff was very nice and helpful. Anita and Peter, the managers gave us a warm welcome. I arrived with stomach problems and Anita went out of her way to get me medicine so that I could enjoy our stay. We enjoyed meeting Grant, who owns the... More

Chiawa was our first stop in Zambia, and did it ever set a high bar. Everything went smoothly, from pickup at the tiny airstrip to the boat ride that finally whisked us to Chiawa's sister camp further up the Zambezi River. In between all was magical from sunrise to sunset. Accomodation (river view, hippos and crocs included, of course) was... More

The young bush pilots must have chuckled and winked to one another at our excitement to be able to see hippos and crocs from the small plane before we landed on the air strip. Little did we know the Lower Zambezi is littered with them and so much more. When we approached the dock of Chiawa Camp, we were warmly... More
