Each chalet has two three-quarter beds with individual mosquito nets. Bathrooms are fitted with a washbasin, flushing toilet and shower with hot and cold water. Electricity is supplied to the Lodge via a state-of-the-art solar system, which has a generator as back- up. The fresh water game fishing experience is the adventurous angler’s dream. The world- renowned, extreme fighting tiger fish, is indigenous to the fresh waterways of the Barotse floodplains. Anglers have the opportunity to catch trophy-sized bream and tiger fish.

Liuwa Plains

This remote park in the far west is pristine wilderness, which, to the ardent bush-lover, is its biggest attraction, and the rewards are great indeed.

The game is spread out across the plains and takes some driving around to find, but to come upon a vast herd of blue wildebeest, a prowling wild dog, or a pride of dozing lions in this forgotten piece of Africa is especially fitting because of its completely natural and uncommercialised state.

The birdlife is abundant and the very dramatic storms and lightning rising up on the horizon, contrasting with the green and gold grasslands, create spectacular views and fantastic photographic opportunities.
