South Luangwa National Park
Although South Luangwa is only about half the size of other southern African heavyweights like Kruger in South Africa or Etosha in Namibia, in terms of density of big game it’s top of the pile. Aptly named the Valley of the Leopard, if you go to South Luangwa you will definately see the leopards. The incredibly diverse landscapes range from dense forests of mopane trees and the leopard’s favourite sausage trees, to wide open savanna punctuated only by the occasional lonely baobab, all hugged by the wide and winding Luangwa River.
There is a wide range of accommodation from which to enjoy all that this incredible park has to offer. Most of the accommodation options are found along the Luangwa rivcr’s edge, so you can see hippos, crocodiles, elephants and more without even having to leave the comfort of the veranda. In fact, the park’s elephants, hippos, giraffes, vervet monkeys, baboons, bush buck and more are known to wander around the grounds of the unfenced lodges, adding to the already unique and truly wild African experience that is the order of the day anywhere around here
