Hidden secret of Zambia!

Wow, this park totally surprised me. I wasn't expecting to see so much wildlife, especially so many lions. It wasn't nearly as crowded, either, which made for a great time and some up-personal viewing!
I was there right at the beginning of the dry season, so many of the water holes were still around. I'd def go again but would probably do it a few months later for better viewing.

The secret safari season

Nsefu Camp
Visited: Feb 2017 Reviewed: Mar 14, 2017

There is a good chance of seeing terrapins, leopard tortoises and also all kinds of insects. The animals don’t like to get their feet wet either so they often use the same paths as we do. We come across elephants, lions, giraffes, lots of antelopes and even wild dogs. During this time of the year their puppies are out of the den.

The Emerald Season is also calle... read more

Unforgettable wildlife viewing and new appreciation for african birds!

Visited: Oct 2015 Reviewed: Jan 15, 2016

I will never forget a particular evening sunset in South Luangwa... we sipped on our G&T's, overlooking a wide river with the sounds of hyenas in the distance. Hippos roaring just below us, all while surrounded by a swarm of colorful carmine bee eaters flying in and out of their homes in the side of the river bank. In this moment, the bush felt all-encompassing. Th... read more

Never a disappointment!

Visited: Apr 2015 Reviewed: May 14, 2015

South Luangwa NP is one of the best wildlife areas in Zambia. It's a 90 min drive on a good tarmac road away from Chipata and it's accessible all year round. The camps and lodges in the area cater for all budgets and visitors. The best way to experience the park is together with a local guide. They know were the animals are. Leopard and Wild Dog sightings are commo... read more

The day will be spent walking in the game rich area of the Luangwa riverine habitat, with ebony groves, many lagoons and of ... read more
