The house is a short distance from Chongwe River Camp but still very private.

The main lounge, bar and dining area has a very earthy atmosphere with spaces that flow into one another. With no front barrier the interior flows beautifully out onto the front deck and swimming pool. A small pathway also leads down to the boat station where your river safaris will depart from.


The bedrooms at Chongwe River House are huge to say the least. All have been designed and built with natural materials continuing the theme of the living spaces. With 2 bedrooms on the ground floor and 2 upstairs all are completely open towards the river and perfect views of the scenery and landscape. The ground floor rooms have a rope screen for security at night over the front “windows”.

Every room has a super king sized bed but these can be made into twins for children sharing. Walk in mosquito nets provide protection at night.

The en-suite bathrooms are complete with a bath that is built into the frame of the house, hand basins and stunning waterfall showers.
