South Luangwa Wildlife
The Luangwa Valley, which marks the end of the Great Rift Valley, is one of the last unspoilt wilderness areas and possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa. It covers an area of over 9000 sq. km. through which the meandering Luangwa River runs. The oxbow lagoons, woodland and plains of the valley host huge concentrations of game - including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo - and over 450 species of birds.
Working with the old cliché - a picture speaks a thousand words - take a look at our photo gallery for an idea of what you will see in South Luangwa.
Checklists will be available in our camps, but for our more avid spotters we have:
