Birding safari in South Luangwa

Add a lifer to your birding list in South Luangwa National Park

The essence of a birding safari

With over 400 recorded species, birdwatching in South Luangwa is exceptional. The end of the dry season brings hundreds of water birds to the Luangwa River, from yellow billed storks to ponderous pelicans, striking saddle billed storks, stately goliath heron and elegant crowned cranes. Dozens of migrant species arrive before the rains, from the red chested cuckoo to the steppe eagle and steppe buzzard. Hundreds of carmine bee-eaters nest in the steep river banks. You can rise to the call of the ground hornbill and set off on your birding safari accompanied by the cry of the fish eagle.
