Chichele Presidential Lodge

Chichele Presidential Lodge

The name says it all… Chichele Presidential Lodge was built in the 70’s, for the weekend and private parties of the Zambian President Kenneth Kauda. Well, you are a President or not…

Set on a hilltop overlooking the valleys of the South Luangwa National Park, this historic property was carefully restored to maintain its original colonial style, an ideal hide away to relax and enjoy the prolific wildlife of the Park.

Each of the ten elegant suites occupied by the President, his family and bodyguards, have also seen numerous African Presidents coming for sunbathing by the olympian pool or enjoying the comfortable lounge, the intimate fireplace or the bar area. Unfortunately, we don’t have picture of this.

This historic colonial-style residence, is now an atypical lodge, affording views down the valley to the Luangwa itself, allowing guests to freely drive through the Park, famously known for its opulent wildlife and walking safaris.
