Hotel Description

Standing on the banks of the Chongwe River, a quiet tributary of the Zambezi that borders the Lower Zambezi National Park, is a unique and elegantly designed, private home: the Chongwe River House. Pushing the boundaries of bush architecture, Chongwe River House offers sensational views of the dramatic mountainous escarpment of the Lower Zambezi National Park, and in the foreground, the magnificent river frontage. Designed by architect Neil Rocher – a designer focusing on ecological tourism projects – this lodge seems to almost naturally sprout out of the African soil. With its synthesis of organic flowing shapes and figures, following the curves of tree trunks and branches, this lodge exudes a true safari sensation, making you feel intimately connected with the natural environment. The house provides a perfect stay for small groups and families, who are looking for unforgettable wildlife sightings (the Chongwe area is famous for its large elephant herds, which you can view from your own deck) and the dedication of personal house managers Scott and Kim, guide Moses, a chef and support staff.

About Hotel is a Zambia hotels booking platformSleeping a maximum of eight guests in four individually decorated spacious en-suite bedrooms, Chongwe River House is the ideal safari destination for travellers seeking a private safari. The thatched house has been built around a frame of wild wood following the natural line of the branches, bringing nature into the house. The bathrooms have waterfall showers and exquisitely carved basins, and from your outside bath, you can gaze out across the bush. King size beds are under waves of netting and offer stunning open-views of the bush or escarpment that emerge the minute you open your eyes. Furniture in the living room has been carved from fallen winterthorn trees and coloured river pebbles decorate the ceilings. The deck and swimming pool, with plenty of comfortable seating and lounging areas, lie under a huge winterthorn tree and seem to merge with the river. With the naturally flowing furnishings and decor, it isn’t hard to imagine you, too, will slip into a calm and relaxing flow of your own.
