Join Luambe Conservation Project in restoring the National Park

A project that’s getting results

Wildlife numbers are increasing

Our guests get to be a part of it

Luambe was meant to be Zambia’s flagship National Park

The Lindsey et al. report of 2014 found Luambe National Park has the highest potential large mammal biomass per square kilometre of all Zambian National Parks! That means Luambe SHOULD have the highest volume of large mammals for its size in Zambia. Tragically, the 2014 report found the park only had a staggering 5% of its wildlife potential due to poaching and a lack of resources.

The Luambe Conservation Project was formed to change this and over the last 6 years, has quietly been achieving amazing results.

But NOW we are inviting guests to join the project as it expands into its exciting new phase!

Why come and visit the Luambe Conservation Project?

IT’S IN THE LUANGWA VALLEY

Luambe’s location in the Luangwa Valley gives you access to explore one of Africa’s greatest wildlife regions.

HAVE SIGHTINGS TO YOURSELF

Luambe Camp is the only accommodation in the National Park so your entire experience is private and you get all the sightings to yourself!

BE PART OF THE PROJECT

Help the LCP team with their mammal census on your game drives OR track and monitor large carnivore movements across the park.

“Luambe is being restored to the Luangwa as it used to be 40 years ago.”

Adrian Carr, long standing Luangwa Resident
