Sanctuary Chichele Presidential Lodge, Zambia, Africa is open for honeymoons
Prince William’s crucial down-on-one-knee moment wasn’t the first time the royals had hit the safari trail – the Queen had already bunked down in serious luxury at the Sanctuary Chichele Presidential Lodge, way back when it belonged to Kenneth Kaunda, the first president of Zambia.
Now the colonial-style retreat is opening its doors to us mere mortals for the first time, complete with ten air-conditioned suites (all with swoon-worthy four-poster beds!), vast dining room and wraparound, valley-view veranda.
Snap up a spot if you and your groom are after honeymoon-luxe with a sense of adventure – think game drives packed with hyena, hippos, crocs, buffalo, lions, wild dogs, impala, leopards, giraffe, zebra, bush babies… No wonder they say it’s got some of the best game viewing in Africa – and you can venture out day or night!
Or if you can wait until it opens on 21 June 2011, you could even up the ante by combining your trip with a stay at Sanctuary Zebra Plains, where you can get even more up-close-and-personal with the bush and its beasties on a walking safari. Altogether now: ‘Hakuna matata…’
