The South Luangwa National Park in Zambia is world-renowned for superb game viewing in a remote and beautiful wilderness area.

The incredibly diverse landscapes range from dense forests of Mopane trees and the leopard’s favorite sausage trees, to wide open savanna punctuated only by the occasional lonely baobab, all hugged by the wide and winding Luangwa River.

national park

The park covers an incredible 22 400 km2. Large areas of the park remain unexplored and hold a rich diversity of wildlife thanks to its size and variety of habitat. Its attraction is its exclusivity and excellent game viewing with barely another soul in sight!

The huge variety of bird life (490 recorded) and large herds of red Lechwe, Puku antelope, and other antelope are constantly watched by big cats, spotted hyena and wild dogs, make for an incredible safari Holiday.
