Self-driving visitors to the Zambezi River will be delighted to know that a new camping facility with 9 riverside camping sites has opened up near the border town of Chirundu where two bridges over the Zambezi River, divide Zimbabwe from Zambia.  

The Pumphouse Campsites are named after their location - the Chirundu Estates Pump House (pictured), an iconic local landmark which is prominently visible on a bend in the Zambezi River a few kilometres downstream from Chirundu.  

Each spaciously-positioned site consists of a braai (barbeque) stand and electricity socket.  There are private ablutions with flush toilets and hot and cold water and a washing up/laundry area.


Ice, water and wood can be bought from nearby Chirundu Safari Lodge

Camping is charged on a per person per night rate. Minimum 2 people staying, maximum 8. Free mooring is provided for boats. 

Activities are available from Chirundu Safari Lodge and include game-drives (boat and vehicle), canoeing on the Zambezi River, fishing trips, scenic flights, crocodile farm tours, Paul V Mission historic site tour, and Mana Pools day-trips. 

For bookings and more information, contact Chirundu Safari Lodge
