Chichele Lodge demonstrates hospitality at a very high standard and we greatly enjoyed our stay in June 2013. Out Game drives were expertly guided by John and Ernest whose depth of knowledge was so impressive and spoken in clear, distinct english.Your welcome was warm, friendly and genuine from the moment we arrived. We especially thank you for the Sundowner surprise on the nearby Kopje as we watched the sun go down. How magical. As we were marking our Golden Wedding anniversary on this Safari holiday, it was especially appreciated that you gave us such a delightful surprise of a private dinner on our own verandah. How very touching especially as room 1 was the furthest walk from the kitchen! Whilst staying at Chichele Lodge it was as if we were staying as a guest in the home of a friend. Very unpretentious luxury - very understated which allowed us to relax in a beautiful setting and with truly lovely meals and such interesting staff to chat with before and after dinner.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Sanctuary Chichele Presidential Lodge was originally built for Kenneth Kaunda, the former Zambian president, in the 1970s. This historic property was recently carefully restored to maintain the original colonial style. A majestic arched entrance leads you into a huge colonial-style lounge and outside the grand dining room, a long veranda stretches with views down the valley to the Luangwa River. The main area features a comfortable lounge, intimate fireplace and bar area. In keeping with the grand colonial style of the lodge, the suites are decorated in the same understated elegance of years gone by. In the ten Victorian-style rooms, the large French windows offer a light, airy feel to the suites and open onto private terraces overlooking the valley - the ideal vantage point to relax and enjoy the wildlife. Air-conditioning, plush furnishings, a four-poster bed, and a luxurious bathroom can make you forget you're in the bush. The lodge also features an interconnecting room - perfect for families. ... more less
