      Chichele Presidential Lodge

      Built for the President - Ready for You

      The lodge is located in the South Luangwa National Park, a place of primeval forest and lush savannah, stretching for hundreds of miles and encompassing the Luangwa River basin. Its adjacent highlands and a mosaic of different habitats extend outwards from the river which forms the eastern boundary. Chichele Presidential Lodge was originally built for Kenneth Kaunda, the former Zambian president, in the 1970s and the original colonial style has been retained in the furnishings. A long veranda stretches outside the dining room, from which guests are afforded views down the valley to the Luangwa itself. When possible, dinner is served outside. On cooler nights, roaring fires take the chill out of the air. The roar of lions or the saw of leopards can often be heard from the wooded valleys that surround the lodge. Each of the ten elegant suites at Chichele comprise of four-poster beds, air conditioning, and a private veranda. In keeping with the rest of Chichele, the suites are decorated in an understated colonial style with a fully appointed en-suite bathroom. Large French windows offer a light, airy feel to the suites, opening onto your private terraces - the ideal vantage point to relax and enjoy the wildlife. 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. Walking safaris are the best way to see the bush around Chichele Presidential Lodge. Wildlife that can be seen here includes elephant, hippo, lion, wild dog, buffalo and a wide variety of antelope in addition to endemic species such as the Thornicroft’s giraffe. This is also an excellent area for spotting predators including the leopard.
