7 Day South Luangwa & Kafue

Book Now

Introduction

Zambia retains the charm of undiscovered Africa – the Luangwa Valley is noted for being one of Africa’s prime wildlife sanctuaries with prolific game and predators roaming the plains. The 2.25-million-hectare Kafue National Park is one of the largest in Africa and boasts varied habitats: the Kafue, Lufupa and Lunga rivers adjoin peaceful stretches of riverine vegetation, dambos, wetlands and extensive miombo woodland while seasonal floodplains and swampland are found in the north. Owing to this diversity, Kafue is blessed with abundant wildlife. 

Highlights

  • As arguably the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa, the Luangwa Valley marks the end of the Great Rift Valley and covers 9 000 square kilometres through which the meandering Luangwa River runs.
  • Characterised by oxbow lagoons, woodland and plains, the area hosts huge concentrations of game including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo and over 400 species of birds.
  • Kafue National Park’s Lufupa River overflows in summer creating a large floodplain delta system dotted with miombo woodland. The Lunga and Kafue rivers are wide and slow-flowing, banded by riverine forest.
  • The Busanga Plains are home to hundreds of oribi, Lichtenstein's hartebeest, wildebeest, zebra and buffalo – a big attraction for predators which include wild dog, cheetah and lion.
  • The birdlife at Shumba is unquestionably an attraction as the park boasts 491 species.
