Chaminuka is a synopsis of Africa. From the concept, to the design, to the execution to its collections of African Art and Wildlife, to its way of life, it is the creation of Andrew and Danae Sardanis, who made Chaminuka their home since 1978.
Chaminuka is a village on a hill overlooking Lake Chitoka; it is some 10,000 acres of pristine Miombo woodland and savannah; it is the roar of the lion and the laughter of the hyena; it is the elephant and the giraffe and the zebra and the eland and the sable and all the other animals of the Zambian bush; and it is the fish eagle and the kingfisher and the ibis and the egrets and the storks and the ducks and the geese and the other migratory birds that visit its lakes for rest and recuperation during their long annual sojourns from the Antarctic to the Russian steppes and back.
Day 3 to 5: Palmwood Lodge in Lusaka
Established in 1988, this lush oasis began as a family-owned home with 38 rooms – the lodge has since been under the same ownership. Eighteen years later, Palmwood continues to exist with exponential growth, expanding to reach to guests from both within Zambia and all over the world. Only a 26-minute drive from Kenneth Kaunda International Airport, visitors enjoy Palmwood Lodge’s hospitality, personalized service and exquisite atmosphere, taking them to a paradise far away from life at home.
An oasis within the busy Zambian capital, Lusaka, this beautiful lodge makes it easy to escape the noise. Though Palmwood is centrally located, 5 hectares of lush garden, different tree types and exotic flowers makes this easy to forget.
