this place is superb- from the amazing staff to the food to the facilities down to the great laundry service(women's undies not included) the place is top flight all of the way. An incredibility attentive staff from the moment that we arrived at the runway( notice that I didn't say airport- as there is none-just a runway which hopefully doesn't... More

My husband and I decided to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary by taking a safari to Zambia. Chiawa made our celebration magical! The camp managers Ashley and Tara along with their assistant managers Jake and Shelley made us feel welcome from the minute we stepped off the boat. They went out of their way to make each day special and... More

We recently stayed there for 3 nights and I can honestly say it was some of the best times we have had. The staff made us feel like family and the guides were all extremely knowledgeable. It is a unique place where you can go on game drives as well as canoe and river safari's. A truly memorable experience!

We recently completed an amazing four day stay at Chiawa. We were traveling with ten other people and had a truly wonderful experience. The setting on the Zambezi river is quite beautiful and wildlife frequent the camp. The meals surpass those we had at other camps during our safari, but what made our experience so memorable was the people. Ashley,... More

The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. We could view elephant, hippos, baboons and various other animals out our back window. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating and the camp was very well managed. The game drives were magical with great guides. We saw leopard and lion every day of our four day stay. The food was also very... More

I stayed at Chiawa for 2 nights in June and I absolutely loved it. The managers, Ash & Tara and the Asst Managers Jake & Shelly were incredible. Loved them to bits!!! The guides were exceptional in their animal tracking skills and at the same time they were delightful company. Enjoyed my chats with them. Both at Chiawa & Old... More

This was our second visit to Chiawa. Our first visit was four years ago, and it's hard to believe that they could improve upon anything, but they have. The first sight of Chiawa as you arrive by the river is one of the most beautiful imaginable. We were greeted at the dock by Daniel and Tara. We were especially glad... More

My hope with this, my fourth safari vacation, was to introduce my son and daughter-in-law and two dear friends to the glories of Zambia. For years, I have been trying to describe this place, but as Dylan intimated in a previous review, one would have to be a poet to do so. With Chris Farao, our guide extraordinaire, each excursion,...

The camp is set in a stunning position on the mighty Zambezi river. Hosts Tara and Ashley were warm, inviting and attended to our every desire. All staff members created an environment where we felt very special and spoiled. The animal life was outstanding - lion, leopard, elephant, cape buffalo, civet, janett, impala, crowned storks, hippos. The guides Boaz, Dispencer,... More

I cannot praise Chiawa Camp and its sister camp Old Mondoro enough. Both camps are run with the greatest of efficiency which allows guests to enjoy every moment of their time in camp. The setting is beautiful with the Zambezi escarpment in the purple distance, and the Zambezi River flowing past peacefully in front of the camp. Elephants were regularly... More
