Lechwe Plains Tented Camp http://bushdrums.com/index.php/kenya/kenya-accomodation/item/219-lechwe-plains-tented-camp http://bushdrums.com/index.php/kenya/kenya-accomodation/item/219-lechwe-plains-tented-camp

Lechwe Plains Tented Camp

Comfortable rooms at the Lechwe Plains Tented CampThe Lochinvar Estate has a genuine history as an “Out of Africa” colonial cattle ranch and farm. Bequeathed to the nation in 1904, the old colonial farmhouse still stands, under a preservation order. But Lochinvar’s huge swath of unique wetland and floodplain savanna was returned to its wild state.

Today it is a World Heritage Wetland Site. Situated on the Kafue River floodplain mid way between Livingstone and Lusaka, the Park is now the last stronghold of the Kafue Lechwe, an aquatic antelope of extraordinary grace.

The exotic and beautiful Lechwe Plains Tented Camp is an African fantasy under canvas. The tented lodge, built onto teak decking, shelters under a mature grove of acacia trees on the edge of the wide Chunga Lagoon. Just six double units cater for a maximum of 12 guests at any one time, making this a tranquil hideaway far from the main safari circuits.
The Lechwe Plains Tented CampThe close-up experience of living in the same environment as the wildlife offers a new perspective to the visitor. Peace and beauty together with ever-changing waterscapes will offer opportunities for special interest groups and individual visitors alike. Guests will have the undivided attention of the hosts and staff, including a competent ornithologist and guide.

Lechwe Plains’ location midway between Livingstone and Lusaka makes it a highly original proposition for the corporate market as well as the international visitor, and perfect as an incentive group destination.
