About Chongwe River House

Chongwe River House is a one of a kind experience, to witness first hand all that Africa has to offer from a beautiful private house in the Lower Zambezi National Park. This stunning private house makes a significant and unique style statement, located approximately 1 km away from Chongwe River Camp on a quiet stretch of the river after which it was named.

With a dedicated house manager, a team of chefs and a full complement of support staff, Chongwe River House is perfect for families or groups wanting an exclusive and luxurious safari experience.

It has four huge en-suite bedrooms, and a spacious deck looking out over the river where wildlife often gather. If you're patient enough, Africa will come to you at Chongwe River House.

Location

Chongwe River House is set on the Chongwe River, which borders the Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia.

How to get there

Guests can fly into Lusaka (10.5 hours from UK) or Livingstone Airport and then connect with an air transfer to Royal airstrip. A representative from Chongwe River House will meet you off the plane at Royal Airstrip and you will be taken by 4x4 vehicle to Chongwe River House, a 20-minute drive.

When to go

April and May - most of the rain has faded away, leaving a landscape that is green and lush, with clear skies and pleasantly mild temperatures.

June, July and August - the nights are generally much cooler, but the days are clear and warm. Make sure you bring warm clothes to wrap up in the early mornings and evenings, as some nights get very cold.

September and October - the temperatures climb and it can get very hot in October. However, the game viewing is spectacular as the animals concentrate around the limited water sources and along the river.

November is variable, it can be hot and dry like October, or, you may be lucky enough to experience the first spectacular storms of the season.

Important Information

Zambia is regarded as a malarial area and therefore proper prevention, by way of malaria prophylaxis is recommended. There are many different strains of Malaria requiring specific drugs. Please consult your doctor for the right prophylactic (anti Malarial) drugs. You may also require proof of Yellow Fever and other vaccinations, so please make sure these are up to date - consult your travel agent for details.

Children

Travelling with children

Children over 7 years are welcome, but there are no specific child care facilities. Parents should be aware that this is the bush, the House is on the edge of the Lower Zambezi National Park, and is not fenced in, so animals do roam freely past. Food can be tailored to suit the younger guest's personal preference. Children must be 12 years or older to participate in walking or canoe safaris.
