About Luangwa Safari House
Luangwe Safari house is a private house designed by Neil Rocher, which sits gracefully on the edge of a lagoon system frequented by large herds of elephants, impalas, giraffes and countless other species which use the lagoon as a source of water and food throughout the year. The house is magnificently set at the backdrop of Chindeni Hills. The beautiful structure of Luangwa House hangs between twenty-five enormous leadwood poles â this silvery weathered wood embodies the powerful yet elegant nature of the house.
The South Luangwa National Park marks the end of the Great Rift Valley, one of the last remaining unspoilt wilderness areas and possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa. It is through this that the great meandering Luangwa river runs, with its ox bow lagoons, riverine supported woodlands and large plains, all of which play host to huge concentrations of game including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo and over 450 species of birds.
This magnificent private house is the ultimate in luxury and the perfect getaway for families (children over seven) or groups of friends seeking an indulgent and private break.
Luangwe safari house is situated on a private estate on the edge of the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia.

Getting into the Park
Throughout the year we have direct access from Nkwali camp (5 minute drive from Luangwa Safari House) to the park by boat or vehicle. During the dry months we operate a pontoon into the more southern part of the park. When the river is at its lowest we can drive directly across the river from Nkwali.

The house is open from mid March - mid January.
Depending on which time of year you visit, you may need waterproofs, a warm jacket or sunscreen. The dry months are from April till October and the wet months November till March. Temperatures range throughout the year from between 11-40 C.
Most nationals can obtain their visa at the point of entry into Zambia. Current charges are $50 for tourists of most nationalities, including US, Canadian, British and most European countries. If you are not one of the above please ask about visas before booking.
All visitors should be medically insured. We recommend that visitors to Zambia take malaria prophylactics. Tetanus, polio, typhoid and the hepatitis vaccinations are recommended. It is advisable to know your blood group type in case of an emergency. Please do ask for up to date health advice in your home country
We highly recommend full Trip Cancellation Insurance - we do need to charge cancellation fees as stipulated. Robin Pope Safaris bears no responsibility for any delays, cancellation of flights or change of itinerary and retains the right to alter or cancel an activity with just reason.
Confirmation to 91 days 20% of accommodation only, then full invoice (excluding park fees) 90 - 61 days 25%, 60 - 31 days 50%, 30 - 0 days 100%. Cancellation fees will be applied and so we highly recommend that you ensure full "Trip Cancellation Insurance" is bought at time of confirmation.
Please be sensitive when photographing local people and their villages. Ask the guide or the villagers first. Be careful when photographing public buildings and persons in uniform - again, ask first.
Travelling with children
At Luangwa Safari House children above seven years old are welcome and will adapt the safari to each family depending on the needs and interests of everyone in the group.
