Set on the confluence of two mighty rivers in the Lower Zambezi, the Chongwe, and the Zambezi Rivers, Time + Tide Chongwe is a destination known for its exceptional wildlife sightings, birding, walking, canoeing, and boating safaris. Officially open for safari season, we’re delighted to share its refreshed look that celebrates Zambia with traditional Chitenge fabric.
With incredible views, cascading green ancient trees and a warm-hearted welcoming team, the main area is an inviting space for guests to enjoy meals, read a book or watch elephants wading across the river. Alternating Chitenge scatter cushions and napkins add a splash of colour to the space, and African-inspired elements of wood, dried grass and unique shapes celebrate the vibrance of Zambia, often referred to as the heartbeat of Africa.
One thing that hasn’t changed this season are the elephants that meander around our camp collecting Albida pods, an ever-exciting encounter for guests staying at Time + Tide Chongwe.
Not only do our eight safari tents offer some of the best views in the Lower Zambezi, each one possesses its own Chitenge print now too. Walking in, the eye-catching functional headboard presents a bold pattern on either side. Outdoor and indoor scatter cushions and a large ottoman in the bathroom tastefully enhance the space with the same pattern. A swoon-worthy detail worth noting is the woven straw light installation in the bathroom – every bathroom has a uniquely woven colour to compliment its Chitenge pattern. To further improve the guest experience, each safari tent has a wooden desk, lamp, natural straw chair and drinks trolley.
For guests wanting to sink into serenity, our refreshed riverfront spa is a must. Experience the ultimate in relaxation at our spa, dressed in elements of its very own Chitenge fabric too.

Just a one hour flight from Lusaka, the South Luangwa is known for its big cat sightings and often referred to as the Valley of the Leopard. It is in the South Luangwa that the legendary Norman Carr pioneered the walking safari and conservation-based tourism in Africa. Zambia's outstanding reputation of guiding is ever prevalent in our team with some of our guides having trained with Norman himself. Our guides offer guests a raw, authentic safari experience and don't let the finer details in these vast spaces pass you by.
Time + Tide is the only permanent lodge in the Liuwa Plain. Its vast wilderness of over 3600 km2 has been protected for over 100 years, yet it is one of Africa's best kept secrets. As the African rains arrive in the north, the plains turn to a watery wonderland bringing with it a movement of wildebeest as they journey south to calve near the lodge. Liuwa Plain is known for its apex predators of lion prides and large hyena clans as well as endangered and rare bird species that thrive in this region. It is a land unchanged by time.
Nestled between the imposing mountain escarpment to the north and the mighty Zambezi River to the south, the Lower Zambezi Valley has a variety of activities that few, if any, other destinations can offer. It has been described by guests as their "happy place" because of its beautiful scenery, peaceful riverside woodlands and abundant wildlife. The Lower Zambezi is just a short 30 minute flight from Lusaka and offers guests the thrill of tiger-fishing to peaceful wildlife sightings on the banks of the river while canoeing or boating. Our guides strive to make each guest feel like they are part of the landscape and not a mere spectator.
