South Luangwa

Renowned worldwide, South Luangwa stands as a remarkable wildlife sanctuary, and its reputation is well-deserved. The abundance of animals congregating around the Luangwa River and its oxbow lagoons is unparalleled, making it one of Africa’s most concentrated wildlife areas. Serving as a lifeline for the park, the Luangwa River remains remarkably pristine and is the heart and soul of this expansive 9,050 km² sanctuary. Within its boundaries, a diverse array of wildlife, birds, and vegetation find refuge and protection. It is worth noting that the concept of the “walking safari” originated in South Luangwa and continues to be one of the most authentic ways to immerse oneself in Africa’s unspoiled wilderness. With an impressive presence of approximately 400 out of Zambia’s 732 bird species, including 39 birds of prey and 47 migratory species during the summer months, birdwatchers will find ample opportunities to spot fascinating avian species throughout the year. As you explore this remarkable destination, you’ll have the chance to partake in various types of safaris, each offering its own unique experience. From luxurious lodges to tented bush camps, the wide variety of lodging in South Luangwa National Park offers even the most discerning traveller a comfortable place to rest after the excitement of safari.
