Lusaka National Park
Lusaka National Park is located to the south-east of the city of Lusaka in Zambia. It is Zambia’s newest national park, established in 2011 and officially opened in 2015. It is also Zambia’s smallest national park at 6,715 hectares. The park was established over an area that was previously forest reserve and is entirely fenced. The idea of seeing a rhino in the wild just 15km from the capital seems absurd, but this new national park (opened in 2015) allows you to do just that. Set over 46 sq km, it’s home to eland, zebra, giraffe and wildebeest, among others. The park is also an important water catchment area for the entire Chalimbana river system, which is linked to the Kafue River, a major tributary of the Zambezi River.The park offers activities such as camping, walking safaris and bicycle trails and day use facilities for park visitors will include, game viewing roads, a visitor information center, one picnic site and public conveniences. The park has relatively spectacular landscape and wildlife habitat.
