New Safari Suite at Chiawa Camp


A new Safari Suite opens at Chiawa Camp on the 1st of June 2017. The old honeymoon suite (T9) on the ridge with the most commanding & expansive views of any room in the Lower Zambezi has been demolished and is being replaced by a gorgeous 220m² Safari Suite for those guests looking for more luxury, space and exclusivity.

Already under construction, it will have a thatched roof, canvas walls with screen windows, a king bedroom, a lounge area which will convert easily and attractively into a second bedroom for families, an inter-leading bathroom with indoor shower, indoor loo, his & hers wash basins and bath all with stunning views. These three rooms will all open onto a shaded, timber veranda via folding/sliding screen doors to an 18m² swimming pool, outdoor lounge, outdoor dining, gazebo, outdoor shower and private fireplace.

The Safari Suite will have its own minibar, tea/coffee facilities and of course free Wi-Fi. It will be off-grid - powered entirely by solar - although it will have Genset backup. The Safari Suite will be available at a 15% supplement although for existing bookings there will be no additional charge. It will also have its own road access, convenient for privately guided game drives.

The minimum age for the Safari Suite has been reduced to 5 years old, although, because the minimum age for children at Chiawa Camp remains at 8 years, children younger than 8 years will kindly be refrained from the social areas of camp except when camp is booked on an exclusive use basis.

Kwandwe Fort House

Kwandwe Fort House is situated on a knoll overlooking the wide open plains of the 54 000-acre reserve. This is a sole-use safari villa in a private setting with sweeping views of the Great Fish River valley. Fort House discreetly combines the very best of an exclusive safari lodge with the latest conveniences of a modern home, it offers total privacy and an abundance of space to reconnect with loved ones. Guests can unwind on the front terrace with an amphitheatre vantage; overlooking the wildlife-rich expanse of grassland leading down to one of the major waterholes on the reserve. The heated rim-flow pool shares the same view, as does the boma which is sunken into the grounds of the expansive lawn in front of the house. Further fea..
