South Luangwa National Park offers an unparalleled wildlife viewing experience. Emerald floodplains brimming with herds of game, mopane woodlands and indigenous hardwood forests filled with hundreds of species of bird.
South Luangwa National Park is home to a huge array of animals, attracted by the diverse range of habitats. Lion, leopard and wild dog stalk impala, zebra and buffalo on the grasslands and floodplains while baboons and vervet monkeys make the trees their home. On the river, elephant, hippo and crocodile can be seen enjoying the fresh, cool waters.
Founded as a game reserve in 1938 and established in 1972 as a national park, the South Luangwa National Park consists of 9,050 square kilometers of untouched wilderness supporting one of the greatest concentrations of wildlife in Africa.
This wildlife haven can be explored on foot for a unique wilderness experience, as well as from open safari vehicles. Night drives are also possible in the South Luangwa National Park, giving the chance to view rarely seen nocturnal species like serval, hyaena, genet and civet but also night hunters like leopard in action.
