South Luangwa National Park

Discover iconic South Luangwa National Park

Renowned as one of Africa’s greatest wildlife sanctuaries, South Luangwa is home to an abundance of game, which frequents the Luangwa River and its oxbow lagoons.

The Luangwa River is the most intact river system in Africa and is the lifeblood of the park’s 9,050 square kilometres (3,500 square miles).

South Luangwa is also the birthplace of the walking safari – one of the best ways to get up-close-and-personal with the park’s pristine wilderness, which boasts 60 animal species and over 400 bird species. While out on the plains, visitors can view large herds of elephant, some up to 70 strong, and encounter the mighty buffalo.
