Zambia

King Lewanika Lodge

PLAN MY TRIP

The only permanent camp in Liuwa Plains National Park, King Lewanika Lodge is an exclusive and luxurious bush camp with a classic, safari style.

Accommodations at the lodge consist of only six villas. Each spacious villa sits on a raised wooden deck and is open in the front immersing guests into the unparalleled views of the bush which they can enjoy from the comfort of their bed. Canvas drops can roll down for privacy. There are doubles or twins to choose from. One family suite is available comprising one double and one triple room. The en suite bathrooms feature sinks, flush toilets, and both indoor and romantic outdoor showers. A private veranda is fitted with chairs for lounging and watching the beauties of nature.

The lodge is located in the remote wilderness of Liuwa Plains National Park. The park was proclaimed a protected area by the lodge’s namesake, King Lewanika of the Lozi tribe in the early 1880s. Liuwa Plains sits in the western province of Zambia near the Angolan border and is made up of wide grassy plains and numerous salt pans. Moreover, Liuwa hosts the second largest wildebeest migration in Africa. There are many predators living here such as cheetahs, hyenas, African wild dogs, and lions. However, the most famous is the lioness, Lady Liuwa. She’s the star of Aquavision’s documentary, “The Last Lioness”, she once roamed the park alone after the Angolan Civil War, poaching, and illegal hunting decimated the lion population. The park has worked hard to reintroduce a pride for Lady Liuwa with some hopeful success documented in the “Real Lion Queen” on Animal planet.

As the first and only permanent bush camp in the park, the lodge enjoys unrivaled access and absolute exclusivity for game viewing. Daily game drives are conducted in comfortable 4×4 safari vehicles and led by expert local guides. This is a great way to spot the bigger game animals and such unique animal behaviors such as hyenas hunting in clans of fifty. Walking safaris take a more intimate and slower examination of the local flora and fauna. A bird watcher’s paradise, Liuwa supports globally important populations of storks, cranes, and other water birds. During the rainy season, canoeing and boat trips become available.

The central lodge area utilizes local building materials such as grass and thatch in its design as well as leather, cotton, and canvas furnishings to evoke the classic safari camp style of the past and houses a dining area, bar, and lounge. Meals are served both indoors and outdoors on the deck under a ceiling of stars. At night, everyone gathers around the firepit for a drink and chance to swap tales of adventure.
