Sixteen guests are accommodated between five classic safari tents, one honeymoon tent and three superior tents. Located in the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Park, Chiawa Camp is superbly sited to enjoy both the cool shade of a grove of mahogany and faidherbia trees, and the denim expanse of the mighty Zambezi River.
