Overview

Safari Overview:

Safari in Zambia’s renowned Luangwa Valley and exploration on and along the Zambezi River in Lower Zambezi National Park are two of the country’s most popular destinations. The meandering Luangwa River flows through South Luangwa National Park, which marks the end of the Great Rift Valley and is one of Africa’s last unspoiled wilderness areas and probably the finest wildlife sanctuary.

The valley’s oxbow lagoons, woodlands, and plains are home to large herds of game, including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, and hippo, as well as over 450 bird species. Just below the Lower Zambezi National Park, the Luangwa River flows into the Zambezi River. This Park, which is scenically bordered by an impressive escarpment, has excellent game that can be seen from both the river and the ground. It’s a wonderful feeling to quietly float past a massive elephant feeding.

Safari Highlights:

  • Safari in Zambia’s renowned Luangwa Valley
  • Exploration on and along the Zambezi River in Lower Zambezi National Park
