South Luangwa National Park is considered as one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world. This wildlife haven is appropriately viewed as such, offering a game packed destination with exclusive viewing opportunities, combined with luxurious camps and lodges beautifully appointed on the banks of the Luangwa River. Big game such as elephant and buffalo and predators like lion and crocodiles are all drawn to the life-giving waters of South Luangua’s lake. The region is also known to have a high density of leopard and endemic species like the Crawshay’s zebra and Thornicroft’s giraffe.  You may spot some of the parks endemic plains game species too, with the help of the excellent local guides.

WHEN TO GO?

No matter the time of the year, the Park will always have something to offer – from dry, bare bushveld in the winter to a beautiful green wonderland in summer. Wildlife can be easier to spot in the dryer months given the sparse vegetation. However the bird life is spectacular during the wetter months.

TOP ACTIVITIES

Go on daily game drives or take part in a popular bush walk at the place of its origins. And with over 60 different animal species and over 400 different bird species, South Luangwa National Park will not disappoint.

 

WHERE NEXT?

We recommend combining a visit to South Luangwa National Park with some of Zambia’s other highlight destinations such as Victoria Falls and Lower Zambezi National Park. The easiest way to get to South Luangwa is to fly in via charter flight from Lusaka and fly out again and the end of your stay to reach your next destination. From Lusaka direct flights reach Johannesburg, Cape Town and even Windhoek, Namibia and Nairobi.
