Luangwa Safari House

4 nights
Full BoardSouth Luangwa National Park, Zambia

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.

"a privilege to be able to see the work of ZCP - an exciting and educational week"

Luangwa Safari House is luxurious and original in its design. Robin Pope Safaris has a team dedicated to each individual family or group staying here, and aims to adapt the daily schedule to meet the interests and needs of their guests. The design of the house means that it’s not suited to very young children, but we think it works well for a group of friends or a family with older children looking for exclusivity, flexibility and great guiding in a game-rich area of the South Luangwa.

Chongwe River House is a four-bedroomed house overlooking the Chongwe River, a tributary of the great Zambezi River and the western boundary of the Lower Zambezi National Park.

Chongwe River House is certainly unusual in its design, but there’s no doubting that it is both luxurious and unique. The staff here aim to be flexible, and go out of their way to accommodate the individual interests and needs of each group.

Tribal Textiles Tour

Tribal Textiles Tour

One - two hours

Visit the Tribal Textiles workshop, where hand-painted textiles are produced by more than a hundred local people. The workshop is close to Mfuwe Airport, so is ideally placed for a stop en route to/from the South Luangwa. With products ranging from cushion covers to bags and T-shirts, it's a great place for souvenir shopping while at the same time supporting the local community.
