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.
