King Lewanika Lodge
Liuwa Plains National Park
King Lewanika is a luxury haven within one of the oldest national parks in Africa. Liuwa Plains National Park has it’s history dating back to the 19th Century. The annual Wildebeest Migration is the second largest of it’s kind on the African continent and is definitely one of the most incredible events to witness.
African Parks took over the management of the park in 2003 at a time when the numbers of Wildebeest and Zebra were in rapid decline. The only predator at the time was an ageing Lioness called Lady Liuwa. In 2008 other Lions were reintroduced into the park and a pride of Lions grew to 10 individuals. Eland and Buffalo have also been relocated here which has provided a good prey population for the Lions as well as Hyena and Cheetah.
King Lewanika lodge can host up to 15 guests in six luxurious villas’ as well as a family of 4 in the family villa. Each of the villas’ has been built on a raised deck to capitalize on the views out over the vast floodplains.
