Chichele Presidential Lodge, formerly a presidential hideaway, is built along the edge of a hillside with excellent views over the South Luangwa National Park. This ‘turn of the century’ style lodge is an ideal luxury safari retreat. The primeval forest and lush savannah is home to elephant, lion, wild dog, buffalo, giraffe and a wide variety of antelope, allowing for fantastic game viewing.

You can enjoy two game activities per day; drives in open safari vehicles and guided walks are both offered by the lodge. Between game-viewing activities you can relax next to the pool or on your veranda, looking out over the African bush.
