First permanent camp opens in Liuwa Plain National Park

Each of the six villas offers views over the floodplains.


Time + Tide has opened King Lewanika Lodge, the first and only permanent lodge in Zambia’s Liuwa Plain National Park.

The lodge was conceptualised by African Parks in partnership with the Zambian Department of National Parks and Wildlife and the Barotse Royal Establishment. 


The property comprises six open-front tented villas, including a stand-out two-bedroom villa. The entire lodge is able to accommodate up to 15 people. Each villa has its own deck and indoor and outdoor showers.


Activities include day and night game drives and walking tours. There is a variety of wildlife to explore together with guides, including hyena, zebra, buffalo, red lechwe and tsessebe herds, over 300 bird species, as well as lions and cheetah.

“We’re thrilled to continue building this conservation legacy alongside Time + Tide, and look forward to sharing this extraordinary wilderness experience with visitors,” said African Parks CEO, Peter Fearnhead. “We’re looking forward to welcoming guests to experience this private and adventurous gem,” added Thierry Dalais, Chairman of Time + Tide.
