Who is Time + Tide?

Time + Tide is a family-owned business with eight luxury safari properties and a remote island resort, spanning four regions across Zambia and Madagascar.

The original founders were Norman Carr (1950) and later, the Liebenberg family (1996), who are all credited as leaders in responsible tourism. Today, we continue to revolutionize the safari

industry through the creation of new, intimate properties in untapped locations where guests can experience authentic interaction with nature’s wild places.

Our tourism experience is rooted in conservation and synonymous with Africa’s history of ecotourism and preservation.

Our regions and camps include:


South Luangwa

Lower Zambezi

Liuwa Plain

  • Time + Tide King Lewanika – Zambia’s most exclusive camp in Africa’s secret destination; home to the second biggest wildebeest migration


The Chairman is Thierry Dalais, from an old Mauritian family, whose family was also one of the original developers of North Island, Seychelles.

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.

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.
