North Luangwa National Park

One of the most remote and untouched wilderness experiences in Africa, the North Luangwa National Park is a secluded bush paradise.

This park is about half the size of the South Luangwa National Park, yet is completely undeveloped and pristine. It is not open to the public and there are no permanent lodges. Access is with one of the three safari operators granted permission to conduct safaris. The park has the same kind of animal and birdlife as its southern counterpart, but is especially known for buffalo herds and attendant lions. Walking safaris in the Luangwa are deemed to be an unparalleled wilderness experience.

Did you know?

  • This is where you can see Africa of old true wilderness and only on foot.
  • The Luangwa river flows through the park on its way to South Luangwa.
  • The vegetation ranges from mopane woodland to riverine forest, open grasslands and acacia thicket. Trees include the beautiful sausage tree, vegetable ivory palms, red mahogany and leadwood.
  • Camps here are made of grass and thatch and are taken down at the end of each season.
  • Safaris only operate here between June and October. Access in the wet season is virtually impossible.
