For scenery, variety and density of animals, South Luangwa National Park is one of the best parks in Zambia, if not Africa.


Impalas, pukus, waterbucks, giraffes and buffaloes wander on the wide-open plains; leopards, of which there are many in the park, hunt in the dense woodlands; herds of elephants wade through the marshes; and hippos munch serenely on Nile cabbage in the Luangwa River.


The bird life is a highlight: about 400 species have been recorded – large birds like snake eagles, bateleurs and ground hornbills are normally easy to spot.

Home to the original walking safari, Time + Tide South Luangwa is the perfect destination for adventurous and active travellers.

With their award winning guiding team, you can explore as you please, discovering the diverse tapestry of habitats of the South Luangwa.

The region is renowned for its world class predator action, with especially sstrong sightings of the elusive leopard. In the South Luangwa, expect large herds of elephants and rivers packed with hippos and crocs.

After a day exploring the beautiful bush, unwind with an in-villa spa treatment.


Amid the wild bush setting, their award winning culinary team creates an extraordinary dining experience that blends expert culinary skills, impeccable serviservice and artful plating.

Our dishes draw from the rich cultural and natural heritage of Zambia by featuring their vibrant flavours, produce and traditions
