About Luangwa

Wild, remote and packed with big game, the South Luangwa is Zambia’s premier wildlife destination. Luxurious camps and lodges sit on the banks of the meandering Luangwa River but much of this compact 9 000km² / 5 600mi² reserve is still largely unexplored, giving the South Luangwa a distinctly raw edge and making it a top choice for an authentic, off-the-beaten-track safari experience.

Zambia’s North Luangwa National Park will appeal to safari-goers who want to experience Africa at its absolute wildest: there are no permanent lodges, only few roads and just a trickle of visitors. Although you’re unlikely to see as much wildlife here as in neighbouring South Luangwa, the game viewing is still great; highlights include impressive herds of buffalo and elephant, a large number of lion prides, frequent leopard and hyena sightings, and endemic species such as Cookson’s wildebeest.
