Owned and operated by the Cumings family of Chiawa Camp, the concept of Old Mondoro is simple – to provide guests with an authentic, intimate Zambian 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 intimate, ‘back to the bush’ atmosphere of Old Mondoro – a unique example of Lower Zambezi National Park accommodation. As such, combining these two camps makes for the most rewarding visit to the Lower Zambezi.

That said, Old Mondoro is a destination in its own right that also offers some of the most prolific leopard sightings to be had in Africa – no one could want for more.

Appropriately constructed of canvas and natural materials, Old Mondoro has an open and adventurous feel, providing a perfect retreat after a day filled with excitement in the bush. At night canvas blinds are rolled down and secured although with the night chorus you are assured of never feeling too cosseted or cut off from the action!

Lower Zambezi National Park

Lower Zambezi National Park

Just a few hours drive from Lusaka (or a 30 minute chartered flight), Lower Zambezi is most likely Zambia’s most picturesque park and is also surprisingly remote, with a number of stunning and exclusive luxury lodges along the river bank.

This part of the might Zambezi River has become a particular favourite with fishing aficionados. Healthy tiger fish and bream catches are common. In the south, the Zambezi River valley is known for abundant wildlife, including buffalo, fish eagles and herds of elephants. Canoes ply the river, which is home to hippos and crocodiles. In the east, the river passes past the striking red cliffs of Mupata Gorge, with its fish-filled waters. North is the steep and rugged Zambezi Escarpment.
