There is ample opportunity throughout all the listed activities below for great shots. Wether it be of the blue early morning haze in the forest, the elephants joining you for dinner or the Fish Eagle making a catch you are assured to leave Chewore with fantastic photos.


Fishing in this section of the mighty Zambezi is one of nature’s gifts to mankind, even if you are not a fisherman. The abundance of wildlife, birdlife and riverine flora along with the absence of human beings makes it an absolute pleasure.

There at least 20 different species of fish in this stretch of the river, tiger, vundu, barbel, electric barbel, silver barbel, cornish jack, bottle nose, purple labeo, two kinds of squeaker, churchill, bulldog fish, mberi, chessa, nkupi, niloticus and indigenous bream, eel, and others.
Both the Lodge and Camp operate on a catch and release basis for tiger fish.


With over 400 species of birds (some being migratory) Chewore is a haven for birders.We have resident Pels Fishing Owl, The Great African Fish Eagle.

Game Viewing and Sunset Cruises

Depending on what time of the year you are with us, you may just be viewing the game from your bed! You are also invited to take a walk around the albida forest in Camp.

(Please do note however, walks are not permitted out of our Camp in the Chewore Safari Area)

Alternatively, our resident chef can prepare you treats to take down river as you cruise the River scouting elephant, eland, kudu, hippo, crocodiles and many more African wildlife.

Take this opportunity to have a sunset cruise down the Zambezi being submerged in Africas’ finest.

Island Drinks

If you have cruised the river and would like an afternoon on land, set in a landscape like no other then taking an afternoon to be pampered and wind down on the Island is a must.

With drinks in hand, sand under feet, river flowing by and sun setting behind you there is nothing quite like Island Drinks
