South Luangwa National Park

South Luangwa is Zambia's leading National Park and one of the most beautiful wildlife sanctuaries in the world. The concentration of wildlife along the Luangwa River and its myriad of lagoons is amongst the most abundant anywhere in Africa. It is genuinely an un-spoilt wilderness.

The meandering Luangwa River teems with hippos and crocodiles and provides a lifeline for a great diversity of habitat and wildlife. With around 400 of Zambia’s 732 species of birds appearing in the Park, including 39 birds of prey and 47 migrant species, there is plenty for the birdwatcher to spot, whatever the season. 

It is home to two endemic species, the Thornicroft Giraffe and Cookson's Wildebeest and is one of the best parks in Africa to view leopards in their natural environment. In recent years a resurgence of the African Wild Dog means sightings are more common. 

Apart from its wildlife, the Luangwa Valley is also renowned for its high levels of guiding and walking safaris. Explore the riverbanks and plains on foot and gain a completely different perspective and learn to appreciate many of the smaller things not easily viewed from a safari vehicle.
