It offers the greatest variety of activities in Zambia, from game drives to canoeing, boat cruises, walking safaris and tiger fishing.

Stop. Listen.
Look closer.

Time + Tide has pioneered to make the most remote destinations accessible across Zambia and Madagascar. Our camps at Time + Tide Safaris are connected through the rivers starting in South Luangwa’s tributaries that flow into the Luangwa River as it bends and heads down to the Chongwe River to meet the same water that has arrived with the rains at Liuwa Plain. The journey continues as the rivers join the mighty Zambezi and plunge into the Indian Ocean, carrying our story across to the island of Miavana by Time + Tide, a raw, yet refined ultimate luxury playground. Come, let us show you…

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. 
Karen, Guest at Time + Tide Chongwe 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. 
Mandi, Guest at Time + Tide King Lewanika
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.
