Zambia » South Luangwa National Park

The South Luangwa National Park is Zambia's premier National Park and has been dubbed one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world.

Many places are claimed to be 'one of the few remaining wilderness areas' or 'one of the last wildlife sanctuaries' but the South Luangwa National Park can live up to all these names and more.

The South Luangwa is truly an unspoilt wilderness, the likes of which are hard to find. The concentration of game along the Luangwa River and its associated ox-bow lagoons is amongst the most intense anywhere in Africa.

Nesting at the tail end of the Great Rift Valley, in the Luangwa Valley, the South Luangwa National Park is wild and remote. It has an abundance of wildlife that is rarely seen in other game reserves and is one of the finest wildlife sanctuaries in the world. This huge area of pristine wilderness is home to a large variety of game and birds, as well as the bigger predators.

The survival of the valley depends on the winding Luangwa River, crowded with hippos, crocodiles and wading waterfowl. Few parks can match this phenomenally high game density nor do they have the ability to show visitors such remarkable wildlife in so remote and isolated a wilderness.

There are many excellent safari lodges and bush camps in the South Luangwa National Park.
