South Luangwa National Park

South Luangwa is the most famous park in Zambia and one of Africa’s finest wildlife sanctuaries. Walking and mobile safaris here are among the best in Africa. Boating safaris and canoeing are also popular and a select few lodges offer micro lighting. For a real bush experience, we suggest guests consider fly-camping.
