Chaminuka Wildlife Estate
Chaminuka Wildlife Estate
If you aspire to live an alternative and unique lifestyle, then this piece of paradise nestled alongside the only game park to be found in the city of Lusaka can offer you just that opportunity. After all, what could be more picturesque than a new home cradled within a game park, overlooking a beautiful lake sprinkled with 700 species of roaming wildlife and 2,000 species of birds?
The game park has been more than forty years in the making and is now a mature ecosystem that has been turned into an unprecedented location to live in and simply cannot be easily recreated. Chaminuka Wildlife Estates is undeniably set to become the forefront of the high-end Lusaka residential living experience.
About the Plots
This high-end development is being delivered in three stages and will contain a total of 550 residential plots. There are currently three home designs that have been pre-approved and offer a rustic build offset with modern interior designs. Architecturally designed to take advantage of the game viewing potential, one of the style of houses positions the living area on the first floor to exploit the views you can have of the game park.
Phase one of the build has homes that encircle the lake and has already sold around 80% of the plots. It is an ideal purchase for those looking to buy a home for weekend, holiday breaks, or seasonal use. These homes can be managed by Chaminuka Estates on your behalf during the times that they are empty so that they can be included as a potential “villa for rent” for guests that stay at the adjacent Chaminuka Lodge. This way when you’re not using your home it still offers you a rental return, but is yours to use on the dates you choose.
Amenities in Place
All homes will be serviced with electricity and water. The estate, on completion, will be managed by the established homeowners association which will vote in a body corporate to manage the home’s estate. This management company will be responsible for additional aspects such as security, communal areas, and refuse collection.
With the homes located within the 10,000-acre game park, a connection with natural living is essential to maintain this exquisite ecosystem. However this doesn’t preclude you from enjoying the finer amenities in life. There is a restaurant, deli, bar, health spa, gym, swimming pool, and a variety of trails for nature walks or horse rides in and around the estate.
What Makes Chaminuka Wildlife Estates a good purchase:
With the property boom that Lusaka is experiencing, density living has been the trend with pockets of builds spreading out from the town center. Chaminuka Wildlife Estates bucks this trend, offering you an alternative open-air living lifestyle.
There is, however, nothing to prevent you from enjoying a secluded lifestyle while still enjoying the modern life benefits to be found within a short drive from the estate. Between Lusaka town and Chaminuka, you have access to the Arcades shopping mall, a golf course, and many restaurants and bars. The Kenneth Kaunda International Airport has recently seen a $400million regeneration investment and its surrounding area is now considered a “free economic zone” set to be developed over the coming years. Its clear that such a unique home, located near areas that are rapidly being invested in offers a great investment opportunity.
