About King Lewanika Lodge, Liuwa Plains National Park

King Lewanika Lodge is a newly-opened luxury lodge, designed by the architects behind Miavana, North Island and Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, and situated in the wildlife-rich but relatively undiscovered Liuwa Plains National Park. Named after the Barotse King who first proclaimed Liuwa a protected area in the 1880’s, King Lewanika comprises six luxurious villas, including a two-bedroomed family villa, each offering expansive views over the surrounding plains. 

Famous for its lions, Liuwa is also home to the second largest wildebeest migration in Africa and more than 300 bird species.

Lodge Details

Style

King Lewanika combines modern luxury with classic tented safari style, constructed using timber and canvas and decorated in a simple African-inspired style.

Setting

Situated at the heart of the remote and untamed Liuwa Plains National Park, it is the only permanent camp inside the park. The lodge is located on the upper Munde stream, a site chosen for its sweeping vistas and complete wildlife immersion.

Accommodation & Facilities

King Lewanika comprises six modern and luxurious villas, including a two-bedroom family villa, and accommodates a maximum of 15 guests. Each villa is carefully positioned on a raised wooden platform, providing guests with maximum privacy and spectacular views of the surrounding plains. 

Activities

Game drives and guided walking safaris in the national park offer guests exclusive viewing access to the abundant wildlife of the region, and you are unlikely to see another vehicle. Presentations on the Zambian Carnivore Programme can be given at the lodge, and guests are invited to participate in collecting information on Liuwa's carnivores during their safari activities.
