Sanctuary Chichele Presidential Lodge

With the magnificent South Luangwa National Park as a backdrop, except an unforgettable safari experience from this well-appointed property. Once the personal retreat of Zambian President Kenneth Kaunda, Sanctuary Chichele Presidential Lodge offers a luxury window into the South Luangwa's lush wilderness, with an enviable hilltop setting and spacious accommodation.

Grand colonial design is a theme carried through the historic hilltop lodge and the elegant suites, adding some old world charm, which is nicely offset by modern comfort. The main lodge has been lovingly restored and offers guests a dining room, lounge and spectacular views of the Luangwa River and surrounding valley from a veranda area.

Stay in one of 10 large rooms that open out onto private terraces and relax in Victorian styled interiors that feature four poster beds, air conditioning, nice bathrooms and large windows that let in plenty of light. Dining is excellent and cuisine very tasty - lunch can be a real treat with the chance to dine in the heart of the wilderness. If it's a special occasion romantic dinners under the stars are also worthwhile taking note of.
