Carefully restored to preserve its turn-of-the-century elegance, Sanctuary Chichele Presidential Lodge is approached through a majestic arched entrance leading to a huge colonial style lounge.
The lodge is located in the South Luangwa National Park with habitats of forest and lush savannah stretching for hundreds of miles and encompassing the Luangwa River basin. The area is known for its high concentration of leopards and excellent birdlife.
Its adjacent highlands and a mosaic of different habitats extend outwards from the river which forms the eastern boundary.
There are just ten air-conditioned, elegant Victorian style suites which are built on top of a hill - each giving guests a panoramic view and the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful floodplain vistas.
The lodge is beautifully decorated with quality furnishings and interesting artifacts and provides a high level of comfort and service. All suites boast air conditioning, mini bar, mosquito nets and hairdryer.
Each of the elegant and comfortable suites is decorated in an understated colonial style with big beds, swathes of mosquito netting and a fully appointed en-suite bathroom.
Lunches are taken alfresco out on the vehanda and dinner is taken either in the dining room or in good weather out under the stars. Enjoy sundowners out in the bush with some amazing views!
Sanctuary Chichele Presidential Lodge offers a full range of game and night drives in the South Luangwa National Park using open 4 x 4 vehicles. Each vehicle is driven by a qualified and knowledgeable guide.
The South Luangwa is the home of the walking safari - which is one of the best ways to experience the bush around Sanctuary Chichele Presidential Lodge.
Children of all ages welcome. Children under the age of 5 years will only be permitted to participate on game drives at the discretion of the Lodge Manager.
The lodge is accessible year-round and is an ideal base for exploring the prolific wildlife in the area.
