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.
