In July 2010, Chongwe River Camp opened a purpose-built exclusive bush camp on the beautiful Tsika Island in the lower Zambezi River.
Located about 35 kilometres upstream from the parent camp - Chongwe River Camp - and close to the village of Mugurumeno, Tsika Island Bush Camp can accommodate six guests in three bush rooms, each with en-suite facilities.
Tsika Island Camp offers a rustic, bushcamp experience in a delightfully remote area of the Zambezi river and is ideal for those looking for peace and quiet and river based activities - canoeing, fishing and boating.
Tsika Island is a community partnership project and combines a canoeing safari with an authentic cultural experience, offering visits to the Mugurumeno Basic School and the cultural village on the nearby mainland as activities.
The Chiawa community has pledged exclusive use of Tsika Island to Chongwe River Camp, which in turn has pledged $50 of each bed night to directly benefit the community, making them real partners in the project.
Guests can now enjoy the option of a two to five-day canoe safari along the lower Zambezi staying at Tsika Island, Chongewe River Camp/Chongwe River House/Kasaka River Lodge and Sausage Tree Camp.
