About
Description
Zikomo Safari is built on the banks of the Luangwa River directly across from the world famous wildlife park; South Luangwa National Park. This peaceful bush lodge and campsite is the perfect setting for your More African Photo Safari. Whether you choose a game drive, an exciting bush walk, a visit to the local village, a visit to the hot springs, or time out simply relaxing in a hammock, your visit will amaze you. Only a forty-five (45) minute drive from Mfuwe International Airport, in an area away from other safari lodges, Zikomo Safari is spread under a canopy of ancient shade trees on the banks of the Luangwa River. It is in the Nsefu sector. This sector is one of the least crowded and richest in wildlife areas in the world. Accommodations Our eight hand crafted chalets are well furnished with en-suite bathrooms and private decks from which to view the Luangwa River and wildlife. Each room has a fan, mosquito nets, a sitting area, large screened windows and has enough area around it to maintain privacy. Four of the chalets are raised a meter off the ground and four are ground level with open air bathrooms, so you can shower under the stars. The two family chalets are each different and unique. Chalet #1 or the Lion chalet (lion cubs were born behind this chalet in 2014) sleeps 4 easily. It is a ground level African style chalet with a large mahogany tree in the center of the bathroom giving beauty and shade to the chalet. It features two bedrooms, each with their own bathroom entrance and a porch outside from which you can view the hippos in the river. Chalet #2 is a raised chalet that can sleep 6. It has a king size bed, a recessed curtained off room with a double bed, a single bed, and a loft where 2 single beds can be placed. It has 2 bathrooms; one with a shower, sink and toilet, the other with a full bathtub (and shower) a toilet, and a sink. This chalet is closest to the river and the view is wonderful. Carmine Bee Eaters are prevalent here during September, October, and November so we call it the "Bee Eater". The remaining 3 raised chalets (#s 3, 4 and 5) all sleep 2 to 3 persons and have viewing decks, large bathrooms and large screened windows. The remaining 3 ground level chalets (#s 6, 7 and 8) sleep 2 persons, have open air bathrooms, porches that look over the floodplain and chalet #6 is outfitted for disabled persons with a double wide entrance door and bathroom door, plenty of room around the bed to maneuver a wheel chair and wheelchair friendly bathtub and toilet. . In order to ensure an intimate experience, our maximum capacity is 22 guests. Zikomo Safari is owned and operated by an American family who oversee proficient Zambian managers and staff. Top guides, guides with over fifteen (15) years experience in the Luangwa Valley, work here. Many activities begin and end at the comfortable main lodge, bar and dining room. We offer day and night game drives, walking safaris and a variety of tours. Tours to: • Chichele hot springs, • the local village, • the local animal rescue center, • shopping at Tribal Textiles, • the adjacent island • the main part of the park • the neighboring escarpment to look for sable. When you come to Zikomo Safari we want you to feel at home, because this is our home. Prepare to be amazed, as the Best of Africa awaits you at Zikomo Safari. Less
