About this property

Originality and luxury come to mind when describing the grand Luangwa Safari House. With the Chindeni Hills as a backdrop, this four-bedroomed house sits within a game management area on the edge of a lagoon, overlooking the South Luangwa National Park. It is only booked by one group at a time, making it an exclusive safari retreat for a small group of friends, or a large or extended family with older children. Owned and run by Robin Pope Safaris, Luangwa House is barely five minutes’ drive from its sister camps, Nkwali and Robin's House. Luangwa Safari House was designed by Neil Rocher, who also designed the flowing curves of Chongwe River House, and clearly part of the brief was to make a house where, during the day, you didn’t feel enclosed. Thus lots of the walls open up completely – to leave bedrooms and a main area which are almost entirely open on one side. Built with stone walls and a thatched roof, Luangwa Safari House is entered through an enormous, sturdy door at the back. This opens into the atrium-style dining and lounge areas. Large sofas scattered with colourful cushions look very inviting, but when we last visited in June 2017, it was the expansive view that drew us through the lounge to the open deck in front, where we just had to stop and admire the elephants, puku and warthogs scattered around the almost-dry lagoon. There is a small pool, and a shaded wooden walkway leads to a small deck that extends further out to the lagoon. A hide, cleverly created from a shipping container and sunk into the ground, allows you incredible views of the elephants visiting the water. The four bedrooms at Luangwa Safari House lead directly off the lounge, with two on the ground floor and the others reached by a pair of interior staircases that hug the back wall. The handrail is against the wall, so if you’re a little nervous of heights, we suggest you choose a ground-floor room. The rooms are big and we think they feel even more spacious because each has direct access to its own private veranda. All are quite open to the front, but the ground-floor rooms have canvas blinds that are rolled down in the evenings. Inside, each has either a king-size or twin beds in the middle of the room, under a mosquito net that is lowered in the evenings. Otherwise, they’re fairly simply furnished with a couple of benches at the end of the beds, a chair or two, and staggered wooden shelves built into one of the inner walls. They all have a large en-suite bathroom with a flushing toilet, twin handbasins and shower. One of the rooms also has a bathtub. Like Robin’s House, Luangwa Safari House is fully self-contained and staffed, including a private guide and game-viewing vehicle. Here you have a choice of short walking safaris, 4WD game safaris and night drives in an area of the South Luangwa that is rich with wildlife. With your own expert safari guide and 4WD, you can set your own schedule: get up when you want, eat when it suits you – and enjoy your safari activities for as long, or as short, as you like. If you're planning a family safari or travelling as a small group of friends, then you might also consider including a trip to Zambia's other 'houses' which have been designed with this in mind, such as Chongwe River House in the Lower Zambezi National Park and Tangala House in Livingstone. For something completely different, families can have the old stately home at Shiwa Ng'andu largely to themselves – and a whole range of activities from game drives and horse-riding to archaeology projects is possible there!
