The design’s flowing curves and bends evolve into open living spaces that celebrate the surrounding wilderness. Waterfall showers, private open air bathtubs, furniture carved from a winterthorn tree and ceilings studded with river pebbles complete the inspired design. Throughout your stay, a dedicated staff and guiding team will ensure your experience is wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable. During your stay, enjoy our impressive variety of safari activities, created for the ultimate exploration of this magnificent African paradise.

At the nearby Chongwe River Camp, a brand new wildlife hide is great for photography, especially rare nocturnal creatures.

Time + Tide Chongwe River House

Chongwe River House is award-winning safari design at its finest. This stunning two storey, four bedroom private house is set on a tranquil stretch of the Chongwe River against a beautiful mountainous backdrop. The Chongwe area is famous for large elephants, and they will frequently wander through camp in search of seed pods from the winterthorn trees or cross the river right in front of the house. The bedrooms, equipped with either king-size or twin beds under huge mosquito nets, are arranged on two floors and have their own private outdoor sitting area. Private, open-air bathtubs on the upper floor allow bathers to completely immerse themselves in the wilderness experience. Innovative ‘waterfall’ showers on the upper floor echo the waterfalls of the upper river, whilst guests on the lower floor can enjoy the experience of 'rainfall' showers.
