One of the oldest and most established companies in the Lower Zambezi
One of the few pristine wilderness areas left in Africa
Able to offer guests an unparalleled variety of activities
Chongwe Safaris is one of the oldest and most established companies in the Lower Zambezi owned and run by Chris Liebenberg and his family. Part owners of Chongwe, the Dalais family, are now also part owners of Norman Carr Safaris and so two much loved Zambian safari companies find their future paths converging.
Although our separate identities remain intact we intend to use our combined resources and experience to create unique, contrasting and unforgettable safari experiences in Zambia's two mightiest River Valleys – the Luangwa and the Zambezi.
The Lower Zambezi is also widely known as one of the best places to catch and release a tiger fish or two. For those with the time, we recommend combining a safari in the Lower Zambezi with our sister company, Norman Carr Safaris in the stunning South Luangwa National Park, Zambia.
