King Lewanika – Norman Carr Safaris
To the west of Zambia lies its greatest secret; the second biggest wildebeest migration on earth in Liuwa Plain National Park. King Lewanika Lodge is the only permanent camp in this vast Park. Designed by acclaimed architects, Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens, who also created sister camps, Chinzombo and Miavana, the camp comprises six luxury villas overlooking the vast open savannah.
Liuwa Plain is home to famous Lady Liuwa and her lion pride, thousands of plains game, hundreds of hyena, the apex predator, hunting in clans of up to 50, cheetah and 330 species of birds including endangered wattled cranes in their hundreds
The area has a long and rich history and is homeland of the Lozi people. The traditional Monarch of the area is the Paramount Chief or King, called the Litunga, meaning ‘keeper or guardian of the earth’. One of the earliest protected areas in Africa, Liuwa Plain was proclaimed a game reserve by the king in the early 1880’s; protected by the Lozi people and used as a royal hunting ground. As the latest addition to Time + Tide’s growing portfolio, the lodge was conceptualized in collaboration with African Parks, the conservation non-profit that manages Liuwa Plain in partnership with the Zambian Department of National Parks and Wildlife and the Barotse Royal Establishment, to bring unrivaled access and absolute exclusivity to the unspoiled region.
