South Luangwa National Park

Located in Eastern Zambia at the end of the Great Rift Valley, South Luangwa National Park was established in 1972.
Abundant game grazes peacefully on the banks of the languid Luangwa River as it traverses the Park, one of the four most significant rivers in Zambia. This is the Park to find the elusive leopard along with other big predators. Being the birthplace of the walking safari, this remains one of its main attractions and a superb way to experience Africa’s wildlife first-hand.
