Located in the remote Liuwa Plain National Park, King Lewanika Lodge (from Time + Tide) was conceptualised in collaboration with designers Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens. This boutique tented lodge offers a tranquil space in which to soak up a long-lost abundance of bird life and a never-ending grass plain horizon. It is also the first permanent camp inside the park, in one of the remotest parts of Zambia.Just six luxury villas have been carefully designed to make the most of the sweeping vistas from this tranquil and secluded spot. Raised on wooden platforms, the lodges mimic the vast expanse of the Liuwa plains with an open and airy design. Modern and sleek, yet perfectly in tune with their setting, the villas are open in the front to make the most of the spectacular views. Each villa features a comfortable lounge, a spacious bathroom with an outdoor shower and a wide terrace from which to marvel at the views.
One of the earliest protected areas in Africa, Liuwa Plain was first protected in the early 1880s by the king of the Lozi people, King Lewanika. The plains are unspoilt and exclusive with rare game and a rich natural heritage. Here, on this broad grass canvas, the annual floodwaters host a pageant of wild beauty that throbs to the beat of the royal drums.
Despite its luxurious design, King Lewanika Lodge retains its safari authenticity with canvas walls, indoor and outdoor showers, decks overlooking the plains and the use of natural materials. Elements of leather, cotton and canvas complete the design.
The villas offer total immersion in the vast landscape, allowing travelers to experience nature’s masterpiece in a meaningful way. With award-winning guides and intimate safari excursions, you can access unrivaled views and absolute exclusivity to the region.
Experience the magic of Liuwa Plain, which is home to Africa’s second-biggest wildebeest migration, magnificent birdlife, a growing cheetah population, and the famed Lady Liuwa lion pride.For more visit www.silviorechlesleycarstens.co.za.
