Waterberry Zambezi Lodge is a small, friendly, informal lodge 30 minutes from Livingstone but in the heart of the wild. The comfortable bedrooms are set around sweeping lawns, some overlooking a secluded private dam with beautiful birdlife, some overlooking the river front. Waterberry is the perfect place to just relax and watch the view from the large terrace, the floating sundeck or around the large swimming pool.
Nsolo Bush Camp is a romantic, thatched camp situated on a waterhole in the shade of a large grove of evergreen trees. There are four spacious, open sided thatched chalets built on raised wooden decks with reed walls, en-suite bathrooms and private verandahs overlooking the surrounding bush. There is a main area with bar and dining offering a peaceful refuge where guests can study the camp's collection of books or watch for a variety of game at the waterhole.
Mchenja, meaning "the ebony tree", is set beneath a magnificent grove of these trees on the banks of the Luangwa river. The camp comprises five stylishly designed tents each under its own thatched roof, and each with private en-suite shower and inside bath. There is a small pool alongside the bar, allowing guests to seek cool refuge during the heat of the day. Mchenja is one of four bushcamps owned and managed by Norman Carr Safaris and is in an excellent location for walking safaris.
Chongwe River Camp is situated on the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers, directly opposite Mana Pools. The Chongwe River is the boundary of the Lower Zambezi National Park. The camp itself looks onto the confluence of the two rivers and the mountains of the escarpment to the north. Situated under a canopy of Albida thorns and surrounded by cool lawns, the 8 chalets are large, well appointed safari tents under thatch, with luxury ensuite open-air bathrooms. The bathrooms are an experience on their own. All fittings are made from natural materials found near the lodge.
