Luambe National Park: The Hidden Gem of the Luangwa Valley
Luambe National Park is located on the eastern bank of the Luangwa River, halfway between South and North Luangwa National Park. It is one of the oldest protected areas in Zambia and was first given national park status in 1938. Nevertheless, because of its remote location on the eastern bank of the Luangwa river, the Park has remained essentially unchanged – largely because it’s off the beaten track, a secluded, tranquil place not covered by the usual tourist routes. Luambe is situated between the larger Luangwa national parks to its north and south, however, to those who visit it Luambe is often considered to be the jewel in the crown.
