About King Lewanika Lodge
Located in remote Liuwa Plain National Park, King Lewanika Lodge is the first permanent camp in the park. It is comprised of only six villas, constructed of steel, canvas and thatch, designed by world-renowned designers Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens. All furniture was chosen as a nod to safaris of days gone by and utilize leather, cotton, and canvas. Proving that good things come in small packages, the design duo’s intent at the lodge was that it would have minimal impact on surroundings.
At every turn guests can enjoy views of the plains and the rich wildlife that dwell there. Liuwa Plain National Park boasts one of the oldest conservation histories in Africa; it was proclaimed a protected area by the lodge's namesake, King Lewanika of the Lozi tribe in the early 1880s. With top-notch, experienced guides and intimate safari excursions, this lodge offers unrivaled access and exclusivity in this unspoiled region. Guests can tap into the magic of the area, which is home to the second biggest wildebeest migration in Africa, a growing cheetah population, famed lion prides and clans of hyenas that hunt in groups of up to 50.
