Luangwa Safari House, South Luangwa

Perhaps it would be more appropriate if it were renamed Luangwa Safari Castle. As you approach in your 4WD the house slowly becomes visible amongst the surrounding bush. But you realise its true scale when you open the 10 foot door and see the massive lounge…with its open walls revealing a jaw-dropping view of the bush and watering hole beyond.

And then you see the elephants ambling past. Luangwa Safari House is the base for your safari, especially if you think the perfect spot for watching game wandering past is from your own private swimming pool.
