Within the beautiful and remote Lower Zambezi National Park, we prefer the lodges closest to the Zambezi River. Set in lush riverine bush, these lodges offer an excellent safari experience - with game viewing activities both on the water and with game drives and bush walks. The camps are far from each other so you're unlikely to see any other safari vehicles or people, letting you feel as though you alone are privileged to enjoy this piece of paradise.
Most of the camps here are small, owner-run and offer outstanding hospitality and guiding. The lodges themselves vary from rustic and simple to lavish luxury and get consistently great reviews. Less well-known than its sister across the river - Zimbabwe's Mana Pools National Park - Lower Zambezi is a beautiful park with magnificent ancient trees, lush grasslands and interesting landscapes. But it's probably best-known for the abundance of game that congregate here, especially in the dry season (June to October).

Chiawa Camp was the first safari camp in the Lower Zambezi National Park. It is still owner-run by a descendant of the pioneering Cumings family. Offering superb luxury, beautiful surrounds, an unusually varied array of game-viewing activities, some of Africa’s finest guides, superb hosting and service, it’s easy to see why Chiawa has won so many awards over the years.
Set in a remote area of Lower Zambezi National Park, Old Mondoro (which means ‘lion’ in the local Shona language) is an intimate, exclusive bush camp owned and operated by the Cumings family. The camp overlooks a maze of reed islands, thick with grunting hippo, while a grove of acacia trees attracts a constant stream of elephant visitors.
