Project Description

You know you are truly alive when you’re living among lions.

Karen Blixen, Out of Africa

Here we will be accompanied by a guide as we walk from one overnight camp to another deep in the heart of the park and along the river banks, exploring areas where there are no roads; only wildlife.

South Luangwa National Park in eastern Zambia, a world-renowned wildlife haven. It supports large populations of Thornicroft’s Giraffe, Crawshay’s Zebra and Cookson’s Wildebeest which are all endemic or near endemic to the valley.

It is one of the best-known national parks in the whole of Africa to experience an authentic walking safari. The South Luangwa is tropical, wild, beautiful and full of game. The park is flanked by the Muchinga escarpment to the west and the meandering Luangwa River to the east.

The concentration of game around the river and its lagoons is among the highest in Africa, especially during the dry season from June to November. Herds of elephant and buffalo descend the dusty banks.
