I stayed at Chongwe River Camp last week and love it.
The setting is stunning - on the confluence of the Chongwe River and the mighty Zambezi.
Their guides are excellent - we did a walking safari, game drive and canoeing, all of which were fantastic. The park is full of game and empty of people - just the way you want it! Compared to other national parks elsewhere in Africa this place feels like a private oasis.
They also treated us to a wonderful out of camp dinner, on the banks of the river, with an amazing bbq and white linen table all set up in the wilderness. The star constellation guide was a great touch - you will not see skies as bright as this in Europe!
The rooms are very comfortable and luxurious and the staff are very welcoming.
A wonderful place to stay that I highly recommend.
