Located on the edge of the magnificent Lower Zambezi National Park and overlooking the Chongwe River and the mighty Zambezi, the Chongwe River House is one of the best luxury holiday homes in Zambia. It is surrounded by mainly undeveloped lands and can be reached via private car, lacking guide though. A dirt airstrip can be seen adjacently to the Chongwe River House, as eventual landings can be arranged with the staff.
This stunning 4-bedroom house on the shores of Chongwe River can cozily accommodate you and your family, or even small groups of tourists. It features ferro walls which superbly assort with the surrounding natural landscapes, while boasting with furniture carved from a large winter thorn tree and fittings crafted from natural materials – marble, wood, pebbles and bones.
Protruding towards the river, a large veranda proves to be quite a nice spot to get a suntan, while the organically shaped plunge pool gives you the opportunity to take a bath away from dangerous animals. In addition to the magnificent views this home provides, it also features guides, canoes, a boat, armed scout and private vehicles, in case the guests feel like getting up close and personal with the local African wildlife.
Nightly rates at the Chongwe River House start at €1,543 – around $2,000.
