Chichele Presidential Lodge
Chichele Presidential Lodge holds the South Luangwa’s prime vantage point, with 360 degree views, and is in a prime wildlife location with rivers, streams, floodplains and forests at its feet.
This historic property has been completely rebuilt and reimagined; Chichele Presidential Safari Lodge will be unlike any safari lodge ever seen before in Zambia, bringing new standards of comfort and hospitality to the South Luangwa National Park’s most spectacular location. Perched on a large hilltop and deep in the wilderness, overlooking wildlife-rich floodplains and the hills of the distant Great Rift Valley, there is no better place to begin or end your perfect South Luangwa safari.
No expense is being spared in crafting a safari lodge and experience that will attract a new type of guest to Zambia, a country deservedly renowned for its excellent, rustic bush camps but soon to also be known for some of the highest standards of hospitality in the region.
Chichele Presidential, like its sister camp Puku Ridge, is a collaboration between the Cumings Family of Chiawa Camp & Old Mondoro, and Chichele Safaris which purchased the concessions for both from Sanctuary Retreats/A&K in 2018. This beautiful property offers incredible hospitality, soft adventure AND a serious safari pedigree.
