North Luangwa National Park in Zambia is one of the best safari destinations on the African continent.
North Luangwa National Park
North Luangwa is one of the wildest places on earth! It is so remote that no self-drive safaris are allowed inside the park and you may only enter if accompanied by a licensed guide. In North Luangwa you may witness a spectacle very few people ever see - a grand herd of Buffalo
more than 2,000 strong!
There is an incredible diversity of habitats in North Luangwa, ranging from mahogany forests, mopane woodlands and the Luangwa and Mwaleshi Rivers. North Luangwa is home to Lion, Leopard, Elephants
and numerous antelopes, plus an awesome variety of birds including Pel's fishing owl and purple crested turaco.

The Luangwa Valley
The Luangwa Valley has the most spectacular National Parks in Zambia
and covers almost the entire eastern region of the country. There is really only one main road leading there, but fly-in safaris make it easily accessible.
Zambia has long been a well kept secret, but is attracting a lot more international visitors as the quality of lodges and unrivalled game viewing
speak for themselves, especially in North & South Luangwa, which has been described as, 'The greatest wildlife sanctuary in the world today.'
The diversity of habitat and abundance of game
in both North and South Luangwa National Parks, along with the feeling of being in a really remote African wilderness, is completely enthralling.
