This camp is named after King Lewanika of the Lozi people, who proclaimed Liuwa Plain a protected area in the early 1880s, making it one of the earliest national parks in Africa. The only permanent camp in Liuwa Plain National Park, its six open-front luxury safari tents (including a two-bedroom, two-bathroom luxury family tent) are the essence of pure and simple luxury. Built using local techniques and sustainable materials, they run on solar power and are furnished using vintage leather, cotton and canvas—a nod to old-world safari days. Designed to completely immerse you in the vast landscape, each has an indoor and outdoor shower, a comfortable lounge and a verandah, all with stunning views over the plains. Take a deep breath in as you look out over the curving horizon from the serene main lounge. Warm yourself by the campfire under an endless dome of stars while listening to the legend of Lady Liuwa, matriarch of the local lion pride.
The Liuwa Plain is a photographer’s dream, with every season offering a different backdrop for capturing the robust wildlife. Join our experienced guides on an intimate safari excursion to admire some of Africa’s most spectacular wildlife—including a growing cheetah population—on foot, in a vehicle or by canoe (in season). Built and operated by Time + Tide, the lodge was conceptualised in collaboration with African Parks, the Zambian Department of National Parks and Wildlife, and the Barotse Royal Establishment.
