Nestled on the banks of the Luangwa River, Thornicorft Lodge is an intimate, independent lodge within view of lazing hippos and bathing elephants. Operated by people passionate about nature, Thornicroft capitalises on its beautiful setting; providing guests with well-deserved comfort.

About the lodge

The main lodge has been designed to fit in with the natural environment. Stonewalls, gnarled wood colonnades and a thatched roof provide a semi-circle of sophisticated comfort. The main lodge contains an open-plan dining area, lounge and bar, and indoor braai/BBQ.

Sit down to delicious traditional local, as well as international meals prepared by our chef. Spend time unwinding next to our Zambia-shaped swimming pool with your choice of drink from our bar, stocked with something for every occasion.


On the banks of the Luangwa River, nine en-suite chalets offer guests simple yet elegant accommodation, where they can enjoy uninterrupted views of the South Luangwa National Park from the comfort of their room.

If you are looking for a more affordable way to safari we have eight permanent safari dome two-person tents with shared bathroom facilities near the lagoon
