Thornicroft Lodge is a small intimate bush-style lodge set in a beautiful location on the banks of the Luangwa River with spectacular views over the Park. At Thornicroft you can explore South Luangwa National Park on unforgettable morning, afternoon/ night game drives with our expert guides. On our game drives you will explore one of the best parks in Africa to see lion and leopard, not to mention all the other birds and animals that make this valley so unique.

Thornicroft is an ideal place for couples or families looking for an authentic safari experience at an affordable price. Our chalets are spread out along the bank of the river and can easily accommodate two or three people.

At Thornicroft we adore wildlife and care about the environment and we are proud to have David Kelly, one of Malawi's best known wildlife artists and conservationist as our Lodge Manager. Born in Malawi, David has a wealth of knowledge and understanding of African wildlife. He is a widely respected wildlife artist who has won "Best worldwide all mediums" at the Marwell International wildlife art exhibition, short listed for wildlife artist of the year with David Shepherd Wildlife Trust at Mall Galleries London and has sold at Christies twice. David has been coming to South Luangwa for over 35 years and has published 3 books on Parks and Wildlife including one coffee table book on South Luangwa. David has worked in conservation all his life.

We also recognise the importance of making safaris more accessible to everyone and offer locals special rates so they can experience the amazing wildlife on their doorstep. Unlike other Lodges these are applicable to anyone living, working or volunteering in Zambia and Malawi, their family and friends visiting. Please use the "contact us" button to make an enquiry. Conditions do apply.

If you would like assistance in designing your package or would like us to hold a room for you please email us at info@thornicroft-lodge.com

We hope to welcome you at Thornicroft and guide you around one of the greatest national parks in Africa.
