Wildlife and Nature along the Luangwa River
Jun 2021 • Solo
I had two game drives in the park. A day and night game drive. The rich bird population was very noticeable on both game drives. My highlight was being able to observe 3 of the big 5 on my night game drive. Park fees for International guest was at 25 dollars

Best safari I've been on
Jul 2019 • Friends
I had 4 game drives in South Luangwa, 3 of which were exceptional and the 4th was very good as well. The night drives sighted a leopard on a hunt attempt and 3 spotted hyenas. Would love to go back.

Great experience of jungle safari
Sep 2018 • Couples
This place is so vast that even a month is less to go through it all. We were on a short tour and we stayed there for 3 nights in chichele safari and presidential lodge . Every morning after breakfast they used to take us for tour of national park and animal sighting was done. You can see any animal at anytime . Even you can see hunting by wild animals like lions.it was one of the fantastic experience i ever had there. Q must must go place.

Valley of leopards
Oct 2018 • Solo
Plan this park with at least two different sector, because main mfuwe zone is busy sometimes , other zones has lesser traveller , bring very effective bug repellent against tse tse flies , you are in trouble with them in lungwa more Than other places in africa, there are a lot of game especially leopard in mfuwe zone , other newly opened sectors has lesser because of shy animals ..

Incredible array of animals
Sep 2018 • Couples
This was one of my favourite parks throughout our trip across Africa.

Our guide Victor did a fabulous job both on the morning game drive and on the sunset drive.

We saw so many different animals. The sunset drive is something I'll never forget.

Best of the National Parks we visited
Sep 2018 • Friends
We visited five national parks in Zambia and Botswana. South Luangwa was where we saw the greatest VARIETY of mammal and bird. We spent an amazing 3 days on safari in the Park. I am sure that visiting at the end of the dry season helped, animals congregating near the river and no dense foliage to hide them!

Gem of a park with varying habitats
Sep 2018 • Couples
Open spaces, rivers, ponds and small woods gives the opportunity to see much variety of wildlife. Elephants, too many to count, zebra, puku, giraffes (sometimes 3/4 at a time), impala,kudu, lions including two mating (one day we saw 28) , hyenas, leopard ( we struggled a bit but had two sightings in 7 days) one was superb (was led on a tree branch, jumped down, stretched, relaxed and then made way across the field to go hunting. Many birds including the gorgeous carmine bee-eaters nesting in the river bank and at night genets, squirrels, chameleon, owls, shrub hares and probably many more! Why is the park a gem? Plenty of wildlife with very few visitors, while watching many of the lions and the leopards we were on our own, a real bonus. Perhaps the downsides- a bit of a trek to get there, no direct flights from UK and when we were there loads of Tse flies

Guaranteed wildlife sightings
Sep 2018 • Couples
The wildlife sighting possibilities in this park are amazing. First of all there is no mass tourisme. You do not sit in line with 10 cars to look at a lion! The animals are serene and feel in security and are not stressed. The Camps are absolutely remote and small scaled. The guides very professional. An 8 day trip to this park gives you the possiblity to see just about everything except cheetah and rhino. We saw 7 leopareds in 8 days! Wild dogs up in the Nsefu sector, zebra, giraffe, ellephants galore and so many beautiful birds. Worth the money to go to this park.
