If you’re looking for a truly unforgettable wildlife safari experience, South Luangwa National Park in Zambia should be at the top of your list.

One of the unique features of South Luangwa safaris is the opportunity to explore the park on foot. Walking safaris allow visitors to get up close and personal with the wildlife and experience the African wilderness in a truly immersive way. Experienced guides lead small groups on walking safaris, sharing their knowledge and expertise about the animals and the park’s conservation efforts.
For those who prefer to view the wildlife from a vehicle, game drives are a popular option. Safaris are offered both in the early morning and late afternoon, when the animals are most active. Visitors may spot elephants, lions, leopards, buffalo, and other animals roaming freely in their natural habitat.
Bird watching is also a popular activity in South Luangwa. With over 400 species of birds, including raptors, waterbirds, and colorful songbirds, the park is a bird lover’s paradise. Visitors can spot African fish eagles, yellow-billed storks, saddle-billed storks, and many other species.
After a day of wildlife viewing, visitors can relax in one of the park’s luxurious safari lodges. From remote camps deep in the wilderness to more accessible lodges with all the amenities, there are options to suit every budget and preference. Some lodges even offer private decks with stunning views of the river and the animals that come to drink from it.
