If you love the idea of a remote African safari but don’t want to stay in a camp with a lot of strangers, this is the place for you. Luangwa Safari House is, quite simply, one of the most stylish pads in all Africa - perfect for families or groups of friends travelling together. Designed by Neil Rocher, the house sits on a private estate on the edge of the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia. The house oozes style. Built around a main frame of two dozen ancient Leadwood trees, it has been constructed using locally-sourced materials and topped with a magnificent thatched roof.
Each of the four bedrooms is uniquely styled, and bathrooms all have individual themes, with fixtures made from copper, recycled sandblasted aluminium, Zambian marble and weathered timber. It sleeps eight in four large en-suite bedrooms and has a spectacular open-plan living area overlooking a plunge pool and private dining terrace.
With its own dedicated team of chefs, waiters and safari guides, the house offers five-star pampering and a guarantee of total privacy. The wooden terrace - with large dining table, leather sofa and hanging chair - is suspended between giant ebony trees. Beneath it is a seasonal lagoon where families of elephants come to bathe.
The Luangwa Safari House offers Game drives - day and night, including walks as well. A visit to Kawaza Village can also be arranged for you by the staff.
