My wife and I recently returned from 3 weeks in Africa, and the 4 days that we spent at Chiawa were the highlight of our trip. The service is impeccable, the food is five star and the accommodations and scenery are breathtaking. We had fantastic game drives, solid fishing, and a chance to relax a little. The crew at Chiawa...

From the moment that you land at the airstrip to the return journey, you are cared for in a personal, special and unique way. Chiawa offers memorable dining experiences, unique safaris from walking, canoeing and 4WD vehicles, and impeccable service. The staff cannot be recommended more highly from personalized greetings, starting from landing at the dock, to attention to details,...

We chose to spend our honeymoon at the superb Chiawa lodge in the Lower Zambezi on a recommendation from ATR. We had some amazing experiences seeing all the wildlife very close to our lodge and out in the extensive conservation area. When we arrived we were taken out on a night drive to see 4 leopards that had recently killed...

Nestled under a beautiful mahogany forest lies Chiawa Camp. Raised teak decks hold perfectly camouflaged tents. The rooms are large and simply but elegantly furnished with the more traditional safari camp feel, wood paneling in the bathroom is not often seen in the newer camps. I used every opportunity to use the outdoor shower on the side of the modest...

I went with my husband and a group of photographers in mid August 2016. The staff were amazing, constantly coming up with things to delight and surprise you. The accommodations were luxurious and comfortable, the food was great, the guides were uniformly excellent and the wildlife was spectacular. My photographs make me happy whenever I look at them. The lions...

I signed up for a photo tour in Zambia with Squiver photo tours a year and a half ago. I didn't really know what to expect, but I knew it would be good because of the high caliber tour that Squiver offers. They have been visiting Chiawa since 2007 or 2009, and have developed a great relationship with the owner,...

The Chiawa Camp is a great place to be; close to the Lower Zambesi with the song of the hippos. The hospitality is brillant! The kitchen is a dream, the landscape is amazing and the Game drives spectacular. If you are visiting Zambia and the lower Zambesi don't miss to go there. Special congrats also to the couple who is...

Very nice, well run camp, big tents under large shady trees to keep your cool on hot days. Friendly team and always very helpful. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that their sister camp had the edge for me personally but both are wonderful.

From the moment Maps picked us up at the airstrip to when Ashley dropped us off for our departure flight, every part of our stay was top notch. The staff was constantly attentive and quickly learned our names, preferences and interests. We stayed in “tent” eight, which was at the end of the trail and close to the river. We...

It is hard to describe Chiawa, but the best I can do is say that it is the perfect mix of luxury and being in the wild. The tents are beautiful, the beds comfortable, down pillows, roll top baths, and showers inside and out. You can see Elephants, Waterbucks, Impala and Warthogs coming to the river for a drink from...
