King Lewanika Lodge, Liuwa Plain National Park, Zambia Opening April 2017

February 17, 2017 Hotel Openings No Comments Email Email

King Lewanika Lodge is a brand new luxury lodge in Zambia’s remote Liuwa Plain National Park.

Set on the upper Munde stream, a site chosen for its sweeping vistas and complete wildlife immersion, the lodge will comprise six exclusive villas including a two bedroomed family villa, with the capacity to accommodate 15 guests. Named after the Barotse King who proclaimed Liuwa Plain as a protected area in the 1880s, and designed by acclaimed architects, Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens, the new lodge is set to boast a sleek elegance and exclusivity like few others in Zambia.

Located on the upper Zambezi flood plain in western Zambia, Liuwa Plain National Park is bounded by the Luambimba and Luanginga rivers. This vast, remote and untamed expanse of grassy plain has a huge wildlife population, including the famous Liuwa lions, the second biggest wildebeest migration in Africa, and burgeoning populations of cheetah, hyena and wild dog. It is home to five of the fastest, largest and rarest African antelope: roan, eland, oribi, tsessebe and red lechwe, as well as over 330 bird species.

Activities available will include day and night game drives, guided walks, conservation game drives with the Zambia Carnivore Programme research team, and boating/canoeing when water levels permit.  King Lewanika Lodge will be open April to mid-July and October to end-December (with plans to open in Feb/March in the future).

Available through Aardvark Safaris from £860 / $1,070 per person per night, based on two adults sharing. Cost includes full board accommodation, standard bar drinks and house wines, park fees and safari activities.
