Designed by Neil Rocher, this stunning private house is situated on Robin Pope’s Nkwali land, approximately one kilometre from the Main Camp. The super structure of the house is twenty five ancient and weathered leadwood trees – powerful and natural. The entrance side of the house is grand and exquisitely built with stones from the hills. The massive pivot door opens onto the huge main room and instantly you see incredible views through the front of the house – which is completely open.
On the edge of a seasonal lagoon and with a backdrop of the Chindeni Hills, the game, including herds of elephants and journeys of giraffe, use this area to feed and water throughout the day. During the dryer months you can be lunching on the deck with up to forty elephants around you.
Each of the four bedrooms has a style of its own. Extra large beds, both king size or twin fit into each room under one mosquito net. There is a wooden ceiling fan inside each net. The beds have all been designed differently, from two poster beds to raised futon style. The materials used in the bedrooms are hand painted and specifically designed, made locally at Tribal Textiles. Each bathroom has a different theme for the fittings, reflecting the colours of the rooms. From copper for the “Coral room” (including a hand made copper bath) to recycled sandblasted aluminium in the “Blue Agate” bedroom.
The upstairs rooms have a suspended wooden balcony, where you can sit out at night with a moonlit view over the bush to the distant hills. The downstairs bedrooms each have a private tiled veranda with large morris chairs for quiet moments.
The Luangwa Safari House is extraordinary – large and powerful, and this castle-like house gives you spacious luxury with nature on your doorstep.
