Sanctuary Lodges & Camps have acquired the following camps and lodges in Zambia:

Sussi & Chuma on the banks of the Zambezi River in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park above the world-famous Victoria Falls
Lechwe Plains Tented Camp in the Lochinvar National Park north of Lusaka
Kulefu Tented Camp situated on the banks of the Zambezi River in the Lower Zambezi National Park
Puku Ridge Tented Camp in the South Luangwa National Park
Chichele Presidential Lodge in the South Luangwa National Park, the world-famous lodge which was originally built by President Kaunda

The Lochinvar Estate has a genuine history as an “Out of Africa” colonial cattle ranch and farm. Bequeathed to the nation in 1904, the old colonial farmhouse still stands, under a preservation order. But Lochinvar’s huge swath of unique wetland and floodplain savanna was returned to its wild state.

Situated on the Kafue River floodplain mid way between Livingstone and Lusaka, the Park is now the last stronghold of the Kafue Lechwe, an aquatic antelope of extraordinary grace. The Kafue Flats floodplain in the northern section of Lochinvar has been designated as a World Heritage Wetland Site by the IUCN and WWF under the Ramsar Convention.

The close-up experience of living in the same environment as the wildlife offers a new perspective to the visitor. Peace and beauty together with ever-changing waterscapes will offer opportunities for special interest groups and individual visitors alike. Guests will have the undivided attention of the hosts and staff, including a professional ornithologist and guide.

Lechwe Plains is a sesonal destination: Available April - November only, due to heavy rainy season.

The exotic and beautiful Lechwe Plains Tented Camp is an African fantasy under canvas. The tented lodge, built onto teak decking, shelters under a mature grove of acacia trees on the edge of the wide Chunga Lagoon. Just six double units cater for a maximum of 12 guests at any one time, making this a tranquil hideaway far from the main safari circuits.

All accommodation has en-suite toilet, basin, shower & bath, mosquito nets over all the beds, a hair dryer, and a private viewing deck.

Accommodation includes the following:
• 3 meals a day
• 2 game viewing activities per day
• National Park entrance fees
• Fishing in the Kafue river floodplain
• Transfers to/from Lochinvar airstrip
• Soft drinks and local spirits and wines
• Laundry
• Service Charge

Meals are served at the usually accepted times but can be dependent on game drives and will vary seasonally. All meals are table d’hôte with a wide selection of dishes, and will be served outdoors whenever possible - often around a campfire in the evening.
