Zambia's hidden secret
More remote and secluded than South Luangwa, this park lies on the other side of the Luangwa River and shares the same geology, wildlife diversity and birdlife as its southern partner. Originally founded as a game reserve in 1938, it was proclaimed a national park in 1972 and now covers an impressive 4,646 square kilometres of wildlife rich wilderness.
The highlight is going on an authentic Zambia walking safari and not seeing another soul all day. What you will see is abundant wildlife and herds of Cookson’s wildebeest and Crawshay’s zebra. Elephant numbers are strong having recovered from poaching in the 1970s and 80s. In the mid 2000's, black rhino was reintroduced to the area and conservation efforts are still strong today.
