Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia
Located in the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Park steps from the banks of the Zambezi River in one of the most game-rich areas of Zambia, Chaiwa Camp, is comprised of nine luxurious "tents".
Founded and run by The Cumings Family whom have vast experience in guiding, conservation and the safari industry, guests are assured of the highest standards in all aspects of their safari at Chiawa Camp. Whats even better ... with very little human presence in the area, game is plentiful and numerous elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and other species are literally on the camps doorstep!
Guests can fly into Lusaka or Livingstone Airport and then connect with an air transfer to Royal airstrip.
Chiawa is a short 10 minute drive to the Zambezi River from RYL airstrip and a 20 minute boat transfer delivers guests to Chiawa on the banks of the Zambezi.

Grant Cumings is a founder member and Trustee of Conservation Lower Zambezi (CLZ) which is a volunteer non- profit organisation committed to the protection of the wildlife and habitat of the Lower Zambezi National Park and the surrounding Chiawa Game Management Area.
This organisation places particular emphasis on anti-poaching but is also involved in a community education programme and research. CLZ secured funding from the Royal Danish Embassy to undertake a Community Based Conservation Education Programme, which was developed to teach and create awareness for the local underprivileged school children and the surrounding communities about wildlife, habitat and conservation.
This programme has been developed in conjunction with the University of Zambia who provide postgraduats students to assist with education and research – CLZ provides the means for some of these students to complete their degrees. Chiawa Camp regularly raises in excess of US$40,000 annually for CLZ and recently successfully campaigned to have each safari camp in the LZ commit a minimum of US$1,000 per month for CLZ's vital conservation activities.
