Visitors to any of the stunning camps in and outside the National Park can choose from game drives, bush walks, canoe safaris, boat cruises or tiger fishing as a means to experience this wilderness. The interaction of the wildlife and the river is extensive and as you progress deeper into the year, so the game congregates along or near the available water.
The South Luangwa is probably the most famous of all Zambia’s wildlife havens and is deservedly considered amongst the elite of African Wilderness Regions. Fantastic leopard populations, hippo, lion and elephant are complimented by a healthy range of other species too. There is a variety of accommodation options catering from budget to the very highest end of safari travel.
Luambe is a small National Park located between North and South Luangwa National Parks. There is only one camp and so the whole experience is extremely remote and private. Since falling under new investment with a strong focus on conservation, game viewing has yielded fantastic results and the incredible hippo population something to experience. A very doable 3.5 hr drive from South Luangwa but also subject to seasonality.
