South Luangwa National Park – find out more
 
South Luangwa, bounded to the east by the Luangwa River and encompassing over 14,000 square kilometres of wilderness, is Zambia’s principal wildlife reserve. Herds of African Elephant, Plains (Crawshay’s) Zebra, Thornicroft’s Giraffe, Puku and Impala dot the open savannahs whilst Bushbuck and troops of Yellow Baboon shelter in acacia scrub and thickets of Strangler Figs, Sausage Trees and Combretums. Groups of Hippo laze in the waters of the Luangwa River, whilst Greater Kudu, Common Waterbuck and African Buffalo fringe the river’s banks. With such a large population of game, it is unsurprising that the South Luangwa holds excellent numbers of predators such as Lion, Spotted Hyena and Leopard, the population density of the latter one of the highest in the world! The birdlife is equally abundant and diverse, with such species as Saddle-billed Stork, Martial Eagle, White-crowned Plover, Lilian’s Lovebird, Southern Ground Hornbill, Purple-crested Lourie, Emerald Cuckoo, White-fronted Bee-eater, Broad-tailed Paradise Whydah and the spectacular Pennant-winged Nightjar amongst the highlights. Zambia is also one of the few countries in which spotlighting night safaris are permitted within the national parks. These are extremely exciting, offering you the park from a different perspective and sightings of such nocturnal species as the elusive Leopard, Honey Badger, African Civet, bush-babies and Giant Eagle Owl. It is hardly surprising that South Luangwa is considered one of the best national parks in Africa!
