South Luangwa National Park Safari

The ultimate guide to your next South Luangwa National Park Safari

Get to Know South Luangwa National Park

Leopards, lions, hyaenas and wild dogs are thick on the ground in what is undeniably Zambia’s top wildlife-viewing destination – the Luangwa Valley

Guests who don’t get to see their fair share of carnivores in the South Luangwa can consider themselves very unlucky indeed. The park is a wildlife-rich tract of scenic wilderness that focuses on the perennial Luangwa RIver. With a long-standing reputation for being one of the best places in Africa (after the Sabi Sand) to see leopards, South Luangwa has recently emerged as a top spot for African wild dog sightings too. The park is also home to a number of large lion prides that specialise in killing buffaloes – a once-in-a-lifetime safari event to witness.
