Interesting facts about South Luangwa- Zambia
South Luangwa National Park in eastern Zambia is a hotbed of wildlife activity; this game rich
park has one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in Southern Africa and is home to Africa’s
most famous wildlife and scenery. South Luangwa supports large populations of Thornicroft’s
Giraffe, and herds of elephants and buffalo often several hundred strong. Look to the river and
you will see vast numbers of crocodiles and hippos. It is said there are 50 hippos per km of the
Luangwa River, with at least 6000 in South Luangwa.
The Luangwa River, Zambia is the most intact major river system in Africa and is the life-blood
of this 9059 km² Park. The Park hosts a wide variety of wildlife, birds and vegetation. The now
famous ‘walking safari’ originated in this Park and is still one of the finest ways to experience
Africa’s pristine wilderness first-hand. The changing seasons add to the Park’s richness, ranging
from; dry, bare bushveld in the winter, to a lush, green wonderland in the summer months. There
are 60 different animal species and over 400 different bird species in South Luangwa National
South Luangwa National Park is home to 4 of the big 5. You can spot elephant, lion, leopard and
Cape buffalo at the park.
Lion and leopard are common in the park. South Luangwa has even been coined as the “Valley
