“Time and tide wait for no man”. We chose Time + Tide as our name as a reminder that time is precious and we must use it to do the things we love. Time + Tide develops and markets a number of exceptional safari and remote island properties across Zambia and Madagascar. We are an owner operated portfolio consisting of:
Norman Carr Safaris - South Luangwa and Liuwa Plain, Zambia
Chongwe Safaris - Lower Zambezi, Zambia
Miavana - Nosy Ankao, Madagascar
We believe Zambia and Madagascar offer some of Africa’s most unique and valuable wilderness areas: the second biggest wildebeest migration, the fourth largest river on the continent, rich game viewing, pioneering ‘blue safaris’, endemic wildlife and helicopter safaris. We have a commitment to rehabilitate, protect and showcase these special countries. Our tourism endeavors go hand in hand with our investment in a sustainable life for the local communities and wildlife conservation.
We would like to share these destinations with you and your clients.

Our Commitment to Responsible Tourism
Supporting the conservation of wildlife and sustainability of local communities has always been at the cornerstone of every Time + Tide affiliated company.
In 1950 Norman Carr set up Zambia’s first photographic safari camp in cooperation with Paramount chief Nsefu of the Kunda Tribes and in partnership with the local community. This was the first example of community-based tourism in Zambia, if not in Africa, and was the forerunner to many modern day concepts of community-based, natural resource management and responsible tourism.
Little did Norman know what an effect he would have on others to build their own dreams and carry on the legacy of conservation; Chongwe founder, Chris Liebenberg was one such person.
Norman Carr Safaris and Chongwe Safaris support a number of different projects in the local area and work with local communities to make a meaningful and lasting contribution with a view to self-sustainability and self-determination.
Miavana is already paving the way for sustainable tourism in northern Madagascar. Our goal is to create a sanctuary for threatened marine and land species on Nosy Ankao and provide a sustainable way of living for hundreds in the local community.
The Time & Tide Foundation (established 2015) supports economic and educational initiatives in Zambia and Madagascar and engages directly with residents and conservation organisations to understand the modern challenges of living and operating within protected areas.

The newest camp in the Time + Tide portfolio, King Lewanika was designed by award winning architects, Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens, the same team who created Zambia’s flagship camp, Chinzombo, and our new Madagascan island property, Miavana. King Lewanika is the only permanent camp in Liuwa Plain National Park. Despite its 5 star luxury, King Lewanika retains a safari authenticity with canvas drops, indoor and outdoor showers, decks overlooking the vast Liuwa Plain and …Read More
