Each of the ten elegant suites at Sanctuary Chichele comprise of four-poster beds, air conditioning, and 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 â€“ the ideal vantage point to relax and enjoy the wildlife.
This hilltop lodge with just ten suites is found in Zambiaâ€™s vast South Luangwa National Park. Home to probably the highest concentration of hippos in the world, as well as lions, leopards and elephants, South Luangwa is famous for its walking safaris.
Sanctuary 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 whilst listening to the lions roar outside.
Rates include all meals, water and soft drinks during the day, house wine with lunch or dinner, laundry and two game viewing activities per day.
