Chiawa Camp Activities

A viewing platform has been constructed in the quietest corner of the lodge, overlooking the confluence of the Chiawa & Zambezi rivers to ensure premium game viewing.. Pioneered in Zambia, bush walks are essentially a "micro-safari".

One of the great aspects of a visit to Chiawa Camp are the activities offered by virtue of their presence on the Zambezi river. Chiawa Camp is one of the few lodges permitted to conduct waterborne safaris within the National Park, and their 8m motorised pontoon is ideal to take advantage of this.

Enjoy midday cruises through numerous channels, viewing hippo, buffalo, elephant and prolific bird life.

Also on offer are sunset cruises, or breakfast served on board, anchored in the middle of the Zambezi.

Expert guides are on hand to assist you in finding the notorious tigerfish (camp record 10.1kg, average 2kg) and other species that abound in the Zambezi River. Chiawa Camp is currently the only lodge offering professionally guided sport fishing inside the Lower Zambezi National Park.
