TRAVEL TO SOUTH LUANGWA NATIONAL PARK

Wild life experts agree that South Luangwa is one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world. The Luangwa Valley is home to an astonishing diversity of life, including approximately a hundred species of mammals, more than four hundred bird species and over two thousand types of plants. The concentration of animals around the Luangwa River and its lagoons is among the highest in Africa.

The famous ‘walking safari’, originated in this Park and is still one of the finest ways to experience Africa’s pristine wilderness on a first-hand basis. The changing seasons add to the Park’s richness, ranging from dry, bare bushveld in the winter, to a lush and green savannah in the summer months.

The Park is renowned for the abundance of its large mammals. Elephant, Cape buffalo, impala, zebra, warthog and baboon are common sightings. The Thornicroft’s Giraffe is a sub-species found only in the Luangwa Valley.  Larger carnivores in the park include lion, leopard, cheetah, spotted hyena, and wild dog. The hippopotamus is also found in abundance. There are an estimated fifty hippos per kilometre of the Luangwa River!

BEST TIMES TO GO

May to June

With the approach of winter, temperatures fall, waterholes start to dry out and the foliage cover dies back causing an increase in animal sightings along the Luangwa River and tributaries in June.

July to October

Temperatures increase with the onset of summer and the Luangwa River becomes the main source of water for the animals resulting in abundant game viewing.

November to April

The rains fill natural waterholes, the foliage and grasses grow. Animals disperse into the hinterland and animal viewing is more of a challenge during this time.
