Completely raw. Utterly untamed. Time + Tide Expeditions is a wild adventure, launching in November

Pure luxury exists in going where no man has gone before. In a world where so much has been discovered, Time + Tide Expeditions takes you on a journey that’s completely out of the ordinary, where you will feel like one of the first explorers in Africa. With the added advantage of a modern-day adventurer, you can reach the unreachable in Time + Tide’s helicopter.

Soar over vast, untamed landscapes, endless open plains, towering mountains, and thundering waterfalls. Awake to shimmering Zambian dawns and fall asleep beneath a blanket of stars.

Feel the earth shake with the pounding hooves of wildebeest on the move in Liuwa Plain, witness the dusk sky come alive with the fluttering of millions of bats at Kasanka. Experience the unforgettable sight of returning migrant birds and a chance of finding the elusive Shoebill in Bangweulu. Enjoy the serenity and immersive experiences of the South Luangwa. This is raw Africa, rarely seen up close and personal.

Set departures in November and December. Choose 8 or 12 nights.

Let's Plan Your Trip
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.

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.
