Based on the banks of the Luangwa in the wildlife rich Mfuwe sector this lodge is the perfect place for those on a tighter budget to experience the valley of the leopards! The rooms all look out onto the river providing excellent hippo and croc viewing through the day and for a chance to see the elephants cross in and out of the park which they usually do at sunrise and sunset!

Each of the rooms is large fresh and airy with a beautiful African themed décor. From murals of the famous Thornicroft giraffe to the bright African prints from the local tribal textile store you will instantly feel immersed in the local culture. With mosquito nets and en-suite bathrooms the rooms are the perfect place to rest after a day’s exciting activities in the park, gently nodding off to the sounds of the nocturnal animals as they start to wake up!
Located on the park edge it is a hotspot of activity. Do not be fooled the park boundary is for us the animals regularly cross it! The elephants regularly swim across the river at sunrise and set (to try and raid the village crops and lodge flowerbeds!!) as well as regular sightings of plains game, baboons, crocs, hippos and of course the famous giraffes the lodge was named after!
The lodge is simple yet comfortable with lots of amenities to make your stay enjoyable. From the quirky Zambian shaped pool you can relax in during the heat of the day to the fun dining room with Braai area where you can have some delicious local and international food. The lounges all have river views for 24hour bush TV! And of course a nightly fire pit where you can share stories from the day and watch as the stars start to twinkle at night.
