Time + Tide King Lewanika Lodge

Discover Time + Tide King Lewanika Lodge

Time + Tide King Lewanika Lodge is the first permanent safari camp to be built in the vast and remote Liuwa Plain National Park in Zambia. The park, which is largely untouched by crowds and paved roads, is one of the oldest conservation areas in Africa, first proclaimed as a protected area in the early 1880s by the lodge's namesake, King Lewanika of the Lozi tribe. Guests of the camp can tap into the magic of Liuwa Plain National Park, which is home to the second biggest wildebeest migration in Africa, a famous lion pride and a growing cheetah population.

Arguably one of Zambia's most exclusive camps, King Lewanika retains its safari authenticity with canvas drops and the use of thatch and grass in the main area. The chosen furniture is also a nod to the safari days of the past with the use of leather, cotton and more canvas. The 6 luxurious guest villas offer total immersion into the vast landscape which surrounds them, with decks overlooking the plains and outdoor showers to further connect you with the environment. The camp accommodates up to 15 people and one of the villas is a family suite (1 double and 1 triple). It is run on solar power, there is limited internet and no phone signal.
