Lundazi is a town in eastern Zambia, lying near the border with Malawi, around 110 miles from Chipata. It is home to an airstrip, schools and a hotel in the form of a Norman castle. The building of the castle was begun in 1948 by an Englishman called Errol Buton, who reputedly sketched out its design on the back of a cigarette packet. The castle overlooked a swamp where the Lundazi and Msuzi Rivers met, which Button dammed using soil carried to the site in grass baskets.

Located at -12.3, 33.1833 (Lat. / Lng.), about 1 miles away.
