South Luangwa National Park
Days 1 - 4
Zambia holds one of Southern Africa’s greatest unspoiled wilderness areas, 9,050 sq km of grasslands, oxbow lagoons and riverine forests.
The South Luangwa National Park, also known as valley of the Leopards is home to one of the highest concentrations of game anywhere in the world and is one of the few places in Africa to allow night game drives and walking safaris.
The park is often described as Zambia’s premier safari destination, foremost for the variety of species seen when visiting and the pristine woodland and riverine vegetation plays host to over 60 mammal and 400 bird species.
South Luangwa is the most impressive of National Parks, with incredible wildlife populations and continually enthralling sightings. Not only is it home to unique species such as wild dog, it also offers visitors the chance to experience big game such as lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, hippo, zebra and of course the Thornicroft Giraffe.
The night drives take the wildlife opportunities up a level. Not only for the chance of seeing a pack of lions or leopard but for the many interesting animals that only come to life at night. Genets, civets, servals, hyenas, and bushbabies, nightjars and the grass-mowing hippos.
Days 4 - 8
Located on the Zimbabwean border in the southern reaches of Zambia, the Lower Zambezi region is best known as the home to the Lower Zambezi National Park which features exceptional, undeveloped wildlife areas.
