Chongwe River House is a spectacularly designed private house located on the banks of the Chongwe River, a tributary of the Zambezi.
The house sleeps up to eight guests and is booked on an exclusive basis. The entire house is built of ferro walls and wild wood.
The main dining/living room has low bridges over flowing water, and all the furniture was carved from a single huge winterthorn tree. The ground floor bedrooms are each entered through a tunnel which gives the feeling of walking through a cave. The bathrooms have water pouring out of the stone ceiling instead of normal shower heads, whilst the upstairs bathrooms have waterfall showers and bathtubs with views across the bush.
The house is set at the end of a large winterthorn grove, with views across the swimming pool and the river to the mountains beyond. Activities include day and night game drives in open safari vehicles, guided walking, canoeing safaris and boating. The Chongwe River also offers excellent tiger fish angling.
