About the area: South Luangwa & The Lower Zambezi

Learn about the area specific to this safari package

South Luangwa National Park

The South Luangwa National Park is probably the most famous of all Zambia’s wildlife havens and is deservedly considered amongst the elite of African wilderness regions. Faantastic leopard populations, hippo, lion and elephant are complimented by a healthy range of other species too. 

The Lower Zambezi National Park

The Lower Zambezi valley arguably offers the most varied safari experience in Zambia. Visitors to any of the stunning camps in and outside the National Park can choose from game drives, bush walks, canoe safaris, boat cruises or tiger fishing as a means to experience this wilderness. The interaction of the wildlife and the river is extensive and as you progress deeper into the year, so the game congregates along or near the available water.

The Lower Zambezi offers an extensive population of elephant, buffalo, lion and leopard with the large herbivores being present in excellent numbers and occupying the river bank and islands with monotony. The lion numbers are stable and Lower Zambezi has a great leopard population aided by the abundance of prey, large trees and conservation protection.
