Chichele Lodge was built in the early 1970's and has undergone a total transformation since then. The lodge was originally built as a Presidential retreat.
The lodge is one of the few places in the South Luangwa National Park that stays open during the Green Season (rain season). During this time the landscape in the valley changes into a lush green environment that attracts Wildlife.
Chichele Lodge is a unique lodge situated in the South Luangwa National Park with 10 luxury guest rooms, all with air-conditioning and the following facilities:

The best time for walking safaris and game drives is the dry season. In this season, with the shortage of water, more animals gather at the dwindling water sources.
The most common animals include the elephant, hippo, Reedbuck, Roan, Sable, Kudu, puku, Eland, duiker, impala, zebra, buffalo, thornicrafts giraffe, lion, leopard and cheetah.
Other animals in significant numbers include the crocodile, the hyena, the wild dog, the caracal, the serval, the rare side striped jackal, the velvet monkey and the baboon.
The South Luangwa National park is also home to a vast variety of birds. There are over 400 bird species in the park. During the rainy season (December to March), the place teams with birds, and this is largely due to the arrival of migratory birds from Europe and other parts of Africa during this time. It is truly a birders' delight.
