South Luangwa National Park
The LUANGWA VALLEY, which marks the end of the Great Rift Valley, is one of the last unspoilt wilderness areas and possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa. It covers an area of over 9000 sq. km. through which the meandering Luangwa River runs. The ox bow lagoons, woodland and plains of the valley host huge concentrations of game - including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo - and over 400 species of birds.

Zambia is a vast country, friendly and peaceful, that offers superb wildlife and cultural encounters.
Landlocked in south-central Africa, it is one of the region’s least travelled and most rewarding wilderness destinations. When it comes to wildlife, Zambia offers impressive diversity as well as large concentrations and numbers,
and some of the wildest and most remote game areas on the continent. It was in Zambia that the concept of walking safaris originated as the best way of enjoying the rich flora and fauna of the country’s 19 national parks.
Birdlife is particularly prolific, attracting birders from all over the world.
