North Luangwa National Park

Information

For those who desire to experience a truly pristine, untouched area, this 1790 mi² (4636 km²) park would be an excellent choice. Don’t be surprised if you are the only group you encounter while on a guided walk or game drive, as there are less than 500 annual visitors to North Luangwa.

 

But that’s not for a lack of stunning beauty or excellent game-viewing. Within the park’s miombo and mopane woodland, scrubland and riparian forests lies a successfully introduced black rhinos, lion (including black-maned ones), leopard, elephant, buffalo, zebra, eland, kudu, Cookson’s wildebeest, impala, bushbuck, hippo, crocodile, spotted hyena, Liechtenstein’s hartebeest, bushpig, roan antelope, and Moloney’s monkey. Examples of the nearly 400 recorded bird species include half-collared kingfisher, long-tailed wagtail, white-winged starling, yellow-throated longclaw, and black-backed barbet. Several species of mammals and birds are often in greater quantity and quality than in the much more visited South Luangwa National park. The best time to visit North Luangwa is from June to October.
