North Luangwa National Park covers an area of 4,636 sq km and offers a similar diversity of flora and fauna to its brother, South Luangwa National Park. The park boasts a number of enchanting waterfalls, and the main difference between the two parks is that the North Luangwa National Park is far more hilly. The North Luangwa National Park also has a slightly larger diversity of plant life, such as large areas of Mopane woodland, leadwood trees, and ivory palms, all of which make up a stark contrast to the open grassland which covers much of the rest of the park.
