Designed by Neil Rocher this impressive private house sits gracefully on the edge of a lagoon system frequented by large herds of elephants, impalas, giraffes and countless other species which use the lagoon as a source of water and food throughout the year. All of which is magnificently set off by the back drop of the Chindeni Hills. During the dry season lunch can be had on the raised deck surrounded by up to 80 elephants splashing around and enjoying the cool water.
Upon entering through the huge pivoting door you are welcomed by a large airy main area, the front of which is completely open affording incredible views of the landscape and countless animals as they stroll past the house. This room, the ceiling of which reaches up to twelve meters in height, is dominated by enticing sofas, two floating staircases on either side leading to the upstairs bedrooms and a large wrought iron and marble dining table. The open front of the main area leads on to a tiled terrace with a refreshing plunge pool on one side and a decked walkway through the ebony trees on the other.
Each of the spacious rooms are individual in style and have their own en-suite bathroom and private verandah area for you to enjoy the tranquility of Zambia.
During your stay at Luangwa House you will be looked after by a team dedicated solely to you. Your private guide who will tailor each and every activity around your personal preferences and requirements, whilst the chef and house manager will ensure that everything is as you want it for when you are back in the house.

The Robin Pope Safari House was beyond what we imagined it would be. It was beautiful and stunning. The people were so friendly and accommodating. They were great with the kids. They even had a crib for our baby ready. They cooked extra meals for our children, made teddy bear shaped cakes, cooked delicious food and were so helpful. We felt like home and didn’t want to leave. This was the best trip we ever took in Zambia and I can highly recommend this to any family with kids or no kids.
Thank you so much Emma for organizing this great weekend for us. We will leave Zambia with a beautiful memory in our hearts.
