Located near Zambia’s capital, Lusaka, this small lodge is part of a family-run game farm, and offers a variety of chalets set amongst the bush that surrounds the original homestead.
Deluxe two-person chalets contain an open-plan bedroom, en suite bathroom with bath and shower, and a furnished lounge with windows that fold open onto a wooden deck. Amenities include LED satellite television, WiFi internet, minibar and coffee/tea-making facilities. Family chalets with two double bedrooms – each with en suite bathroom – and a lounge accommodate up to four people with similar amenities.
More than 300 bird and 23 mammal species are found on the 650 hectares of grassland, including Liechtenstein’s hartebeest, roan antelope and tsessebe. Activities include guided wildlife drives in an open-topped vehicle, bush walks and horse riding. One particular highlight is the Elephant Orphanage, run in conjunction with the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation, which rescues and rehabilitates orphaned elephant calves. These can be viewed daily at fixed times from a viewing platform near the entrance.
