The ultimate walking safari paradise

Zambia’s remote South Luangwa National Park is located in the northeast of the country and considered one of Africa’s best-kept secrets.  It is where the now famous walking safari originated and there is nothing that rivals the thrill of tracking animals on foot through the African bush.

South Luangwa has one of the largest concentrations of leopard and is the stomping ground for thousands of elephants. The concentration of game around the Luangwa River is among the most intense in Africa and many documentaries have been made about its hippo population. This area is inaccessible during the rainy season from December until April and most of the camps close during this time. September to November can be very hot in the valley.  June and November provide the best game viewing.

A popular fly-in safari destination combined with Lower Zambezi and Victoria Falls (Livingstone), South Luangwa National Park offers some of the finest luxury lodges and camps in Zambia and unique add on activities such as mountain bike safaris and microlight safaris from one of our favourite camps, Tafika.
