Time + Tide King Lewanika

Feel the rhythm drummed by the hooves of migrating wildebeest, the wing beats of cranes taking flight and the distant rumble of a thunderstorm on the horizon. Take in the sea of wildflowers stretching out across the savannah. Get up close and personal with a clan of curious hyenas.This camp is named after King Lewanika of the Lozi people, who proclaimed Liuwa Plain a protected area in the early 1880s, making it one of the earliest game reserves in Africa. Today it remains an unspoilt area, hosting a pageant of rare game and wild beauty.The only permanent camp in Liuwa Plain National Park, its six open-front villas (including a two-bedroom, two-bathroom family villa) are the essence of pure and simple luxury. Built using local techniques and sustainable materials, they run on solar power and are furnished using vintage leather, cotton and canvas—a nod to old-world safari days. Designed to completely immerse you in the vast landscape, each has an indoor and outdoor shower, a comfortable lounge and a verandah, all with stunning views over the plains.
