Luangwa Safari House

Classic A deluxe lodge or tented camp, almost all with swimming pools, excellent food and service, large nicely appointed rooms or tents with comfortable beds and tasteful decor; most of the lodges have air-conditioning and the tents are usually fan-cooled.

Luangwa Safari House sits on a private estate on the edge of the South Luangwa National Park. It sleeps eight in four large en-suite bedrooms and has a spectacular open-plan living area overlooking a plunge pool and private dining terrace. The wooden terrace - with large dining table, leather sofa and hanging chair - is suspended between giant ebony trees. Beneath it is a seasonal lagoon where families of elephants come to bathe.

The house is built around a main frame of two dozen ancient Leadwood trees, it has been constructed using locally-sourced materials and topped with a magnificent thatched roof. Each of the four bedrooms is uniquely styled, and bathrooms all have individual themes, with fixtures made from copper, recycled sandblasted aluminium, Zambian marble and weathered timber. The living room has a vast 30-lamp metal chandelier designed by Matt Peacock, plus a huge marble dining table and large comfortable sofas. The two hand-carved staircases lead to a suspended wooden balcony where you can sit out at night and enjoy a moonlit view of the bush against a dramatic backdrop of the Chindeni Hills.

Luangwa Safari House makes an ideal base for a family. Some rooms can be converted from doubles to twins - plus supervised activities and child minding can be arranged. The minimum age for children is seven. Robin Pope Safaris provides your private vehicles, safari guides and an armed scout for walking safaris, ensuring you enjoy the very best possible game viewing experience.  It is only 1 kilometre from Nkwali.
