Feel a million miles away at this remote bush camp in walking safari heaven

An oasis set deep in the heart of South Luangwa National Park, with no other camps around for miles, Time + Tide Luwi is named after the seasonal river that flows between January and April.

Its five cosy safari tents are nestled under a grove of ancient mahogany trees overlooking a floodplain that attracts hippos and elephants. Rebuilt every year, they’re designed to fully immerse guests in the bush experience. Each has a feather-top bed, open air en-suite bathroom and a peaceful outdoor seating area for watching the wildlife wander by.

Take a nap in the hammock beside the main lounge, enveloped in tranquillity. Enjoy a pre-dinner gin and tonic in the inviting open-air bar. Relive your favourite moments of the day over a delicious Zambian-inspired meal in the wild.

Nearby, a wildlife hide overlooks a lively oxbow lagoon—perfect for photography. Combine safari walks with day and night game drives to explore everything the bush has to offer.

This is the most magical place you're ever likely to experience. Nestled under a grove of imposing Albida trees, it is clearly favoured by the many elephant who graze on the Albida pods. Their presence adds an incredibly special energy to the camp.

The lodge is stunning and all the staff are utterly wonderful. The views from the lodge are outstanding, lovely Liuwa wilderness. My bedroom was incredibly comfortable, very stylish, hitting a difficult combination of minimalist yet luxury. Incredibly comfortable bed and many relaxing areas to rest.

Our family had the most joyful time at Chongwe, really everything was perfect and every detail taken care of. The team ensured we had the best time at every activity (even tiger fishing!). We felt privileged to spend a few days here and look forward to returning.
Dawn, Guest at Time + Tide Chongwe
We love safaris and this was an excellent camp with a real authentic bush feel, which we always enjoy. The service was excellent and the team are so attentive. Really superb guiding which made for a tremendous experience.

Chinzombo is a stunning lodge in a beautiful location of the South Luangwa. The rooms are luxurious and spacious, with a deck and plunge pool overlooking the Luangwa River. There is always an abundance of wildlife around the rooms, we had a banded mongoose, bushbuck, elephants and hippo's - just to name a few.
