King Lewanika Lodge, Liuwa Plain National Park, Zambia

Combine luxury and expert guiding in one of Africa's most wild and untouched parks

Available as part of your tailor-made tour of Zambia, designed for you by one of our safari experts

The Liuwa Plain is a truly untouched wilderness area, located in the far reaches of western Zambia. To connoisseur safari-goers, it is one of Africa's ultimate safari destinations. It feels like you have the vast game-rich plains entirely to yourself.


This remote hideaway has just six luxury villas, constructed of steel, canvas and thatch, designed by world-renowned designers Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens. The design is modern and sleek, and the rooms are open fronted to make the most of the incredible views, and all furniture was chosen as a nod to safaris of old, utilizing leather, cotton, and canvas. Each spacious villa has a lounge area, open plan bathroom and outdoor shower, as well as a terrace with a canvas canopy providing shade. 

Activities & Experiences

The Lodge offers day and night drives, plus walking safaris and canoeing safaris. With top-notch, experienced guides and intimate safari excursions, King Lewanika Lodge offers unrivaled access and exclusivity in this unspoiled region. Guests can tap into the magic of the area, which is home to the second biggest wildebeest migration in Africa, plus lion, wild dog, cheetah, hyena and a wide variety of antelope. The park also offers superb birding opportunities, particularly during the rains, when large flocks of migratory species arrive.

Facilities & Services

The Liuwa Plain is a truly untouched wilderness area, located in the far reaches of western Zambia. To connoisseur safari-goers, it is one of Africa's ultimate safari destinations and previously the only access was on a set departure mobile safari. King Lewanika Lodge is a permanent camp, with indoor and outdoor dining options, bar, main deck and cosy camp fire.

Weather & Seasons

The main time to visit the Liuwa Plain is in the drier months from August to December, when access is relatively easy. As the dry season wears on, game-viewing becomes even more rewarding as the grass is grazed lower and wildlife concentrates around water sources. In November, the rains begin, generally in short, sharp bursts in late afternoon, enabling the pans to burst into life with flowers carpeting the ground and herds of blue wildebeest move in on their annual migration from Angola. From December to April, the plains are in flood, causing problems for access for visitors, but providing life to the wildlife that remains here year-round.

Getting Here

Fly to Lusaka via Johannesburg or Nairobi. From here catch a light aircraft flight out to the Liuwa Plain.
