When we first arrived at Chongwe, we were greeted by a herd of elephants ambling around the grounds and one was even drinking from the pool! The next night we were called in early from our lovely "Sundowner" river cruise because there was a leopard a few minutes drive from the house up in a tree feasting on a kill. The daily game drives, canoe trips and walking safaris were expertly guided by our very knowledgeable and friendly guide, Victor. The house itself was a unique and amazing experience with its incredible architecture and more than comfortable rooms. Sean and Janie were exquisite hosts and ensured that everything was taken care of and even anticipated our needs before we knew them. The food was delicious and plentiful. We were spoiled rotten for our entire stay and didn't want to ever leave.
On a side note: If you get the chance, consider visting the local village and meeting the people there. We toured the school and medical clinic there and received a little taste of what it would be like to live there. There are many ways to help this (and other) village if you are interested. Visiting the local villages made us feel very connected to the people and was a highlight of our trip.More
