Location: North West Zambia, in the Luangwa Valley
Climate: Dry in Apr – Oct and wet from Nov – Mar.
Typical Landscape: This is one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world – landscape is hugely diverse
The South Luangwa has long been known as one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world and is one of Zambia’s main draws – at 9,050 sq km the park is centred around the Luangwa River, and certainly lives up to its reputation as it is one of Africa’s largest concentrations of wildlife. The density of leopards here is among the highest in the world, although sometimes spotting these elusive creatures can still be tricky.
The South Luangwa National Park is the ultimate addition to any luxury bespoke Zambia safari and is also a birders paradise. The best time to go is in the dry season, as the weather is at it’s best, and this also offers the best chance of seeing the elusive and rare African wild dog.Show Less
