Luangwa Safari House sits on a private estate on the edge of the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia and is perfect for an intimate family safari or gathering of friends.
Overlooking a lagoon, through woodland and onto the Chendeni Hills, the house sleeps eight in four large en-suite bedrooms and has a spectacular open-plan living area overlooking a plunge pool and private dining terrace.
With its own dedicated team of chefs, waiters and safari guides, the house offers five-star pampering and a guarantee of total privacy.
The wooden terrace - with large dining table, leather sofa and hanging chair - is suspended between giant ebony trees. Beneath it is a seasonal lagoon where families of elephants come to bathe.
The house oozes style. Built around a main frame of two dozen ancient Leadwood trees, it has been constructed using locally-sourced materials and topped with a magnificent thatched roof.
Each of the four bedrooms is uniquely styled, and bathrooms all have individual themes, with fixtures made from copper, recycled sandblasted aluminium, Zambian marble and weathered timber.
The living room has a vast 30-lamp metal chandelier, a huge marble dining table and large comfortable sofas.
The two hand-carved staircases lead to a suspended wooden balcony where you can sit out at night and enjoy a moonlit view of the bush against a dramatic backdrop of the Chindeni Hills.
Nkwali Camp is 1km away, so while you have the thrill of splendid isolation, you also benefit from the advantages of a fully-serviced luxury safari lodge nearby.
Whilst staying at Luangwa House, you will have access to private vehicles, safari guides and an armed scout for walking safaris, ensuring you enjoy the very best possible game viewing experience.
Luangwa House is ideal for a safari with children and is very “family friendly". Some rooms can be converted from doubles to twins - plus supervised activities and child minding can be arranged. The minimum age for children is seven.
