Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

One of the tributaries of Zambezi River, home to 1000 of pool of Hippos, Crocs and considerable elephants community, it passes through the pristine South Luangwa national park and joins with Sheri river in Malawi to meet Zambezi and down to Indian Ocean. Luangwa Bridge is treat to watch. Good time to see after floods, July - November. The river will be in its peak flow during January - April. Tiger Fish fishing is an adventure. But you should drop the fish back into the water as this is against the wild life act.

My most exotic vacation I think it must have been. Zambia has not utilised it potential in tourism. It was nothing organised. I few friends and I decided we wanted to go on a walking safari, and som people told us about Luangwa valley. It was at the end of the dry season - a smart time to choose than the animals folks down to the river to drink, Because of the dryness of the land. We saw beards of animals the big five and many others. Morning safaris, night safaris. The camp,was very basic due to the fact that you are not allowed to build anything permanent in this national park. They had to move camp every 3 or maybe 5 years. You were given a traditional round hut made of straw sleeping on these military collapseable beds. Food very good simple but tasteful, the Rangers fantastic knowledge and very nice. I strongly recommend Luangwa valley.

North Luangwa Valley is a lovely remote are to visit. You need to expect little services, rough dirt roads, dry river crossings (only go in the dry season), heat, tetse flies, basic food at any accomodation and then it will be magic. Animals abound, the elephant population is recovering and the security in the park is tight. We stayed both on the boundaries at private campsites managed by Zambian Dawn Safaris and at Buffalo camp. The memories will be treasured and we felt really remote. This is an adventure for the brave but it isn't too technically challenging ig you have a decent 4x4. The roads within the park were far better maintained than anticipated and outside the park were ok, but patience and attentiveness was required.
The scrub is reasonably thick so seeing the animals can be a little difficult and definitely not on the scale of savannah style game viewing. But close encounters are a definite, if a little scarey at times. A fantastic place if you make the effort to get out off the standard tourist trail.
