Luangwe National Park


One of Africa’s most impressive wildlife sanctuaries, situated on the scenic Luangwa River in Eastern Zambia, is the world renowned Luangwa National Park. It is the most popular and prominent game park in Zambia and is divided into two separate parks known as the north and south regions.

It truly is a wildlife haven and impressively hosts over 100 different types of mammals from majestic lions to large pods of hippos residing on the river bed. The park has one of the largest concentrations of leopards in Africa with travellers being able to spot these introverted nocturnal cats regularly during night time game drives. It is also a bird watchers dream, with over 400 species residing in this unique sanctuary.

Additional Luangwa National Park activities include guided walking safaris, unique birding safaris as well as boat safaris where it is common to spot crocodiles and elephants on the riverside.
