South Luangwa Zambia

South Luangwa National Park -

One of the best Safari Destinations in the World

The South Luangwa National Park’s reputation is legendary and, doubtlessly, it ranks among the best safari destinations of the world. The lush ecosystem allows for a stunning variety of enchanting landscapes and diverse wildlife: high trees, sweeping plains and the wild African bush!

The park’s area adds up to over 9,000 square kilometres! The Puku Antelopes are especially interesting. They are a very unusual species for southern Africa. However, in the South Luangwa National Park they can be spotted in large numbers and even have calves all year round. The Puku Antelopes depend on drinking water every day and their warning whistle, when facing immediate danger, can be heard throughout the park. Furthermore, the Luangwa Park is home to a special species of giraffe. The giraffes in the South Luangwa National Park are smaller than the more common type. The reason is that the food hangs lower in the Luangwa and an exceedingly long neck is not required.

Incidentally, the park is named after the river that flows through it. The river houses the world’s largest hippo population and gigantic crocodiles are always present. The park is also an ideal territory for ornithologists. More than 400 bird species live here.

Very special and popular are the river-safaris, which are being offered at several locations throughout the park. South Luangwa National Park is your best option if you want to observe animals in their natural habitat, especially antelopes, wild cats and hippopotamus.You should try to avoid the rainy season.
