A beautiful wilderness

The Lower Zambezi is a playground for all, scenically breathtaking and indisputably good for the soul.

We are not sure that life gets better than when fishing on the Lower Zambezi whilst enjoying canapés and an iced cold beverage? Float past elephants and hippos on the river bank whilst you wait for ‘the bite’ – you won’t be waiting long on the Lower Zambezi! Zambia have a strict catch and release policy for ethical fishing and a plentiful river.

For an even more relaxing experience, canoe at your leisure along the Zambezi river, taking in the awe-inspiring scenery and steering between animals.

OLD MONDORO

The concept of Old Mondoro is simple – to provide guests with an authentic, intimate safari that concentrates on the wildlife and bush experience whilst not forgoing any creature comforts or service.

Whilst the luxuries and bush-sophistication of Chiawa Camp are undeniably appealing, guests will also enjoy the “back to the bush” atmosphere of Old Mondoro and so combining these two camps makes for the most rewarding visit to the Lower Zambezi.
