Zambia’s flagship safari destination

The Luangwa Valley is a standout, internationally acclaimed wildlife mecca offering safari encounters for a wide range of people and budgets. North and South Luangwa and Luambe National Park are dominated by the presence of the Luangwa River and her many moods and seasons.  From striking emeralds and incredible birdlife at the beginning of the season (April / May) to the flaming sunsets and sandy floodplains that become hallmarks of the valley by the end of October, this is Africa at its most authentic!

How to best experience the Luangwa Valley

The Luangwa Valley is the birthplace of the African walking safari and offers possibly the most authentic bush experience in Africa. If you’re going to take the time and explore the valley in all its wonder, then Luambe National Park and her camps is the perfect fit to partner with South Luangwa and push into North Luangwa.  

Here’s how and why you should include Luambe in your Luangwa Valley adventure...


Combine Luambe with South Luangwa National Park

If you’re wanting to experience both the prolific wildlife in South Luangwa as well as the privacy and intimacy of a bush camp feel, then combining South Luangwa and Luambe National Parks works beautifully. 

The South offers the abundance of wildlife to tick all the boxes and Luambe offers a park to yourself without the crowds to experience the Luangwa of old – remote and wild!. There are a number of popular packages and specials which include these two parks and with just a 4 hour road transfer between the two parks, it gives the safari traveller the best of both worlds.

Combine Luambe with North Luangwa National Park

Accessing North Luangwa has always been tricky as it’s a long drive from anywhere and chartering in is pricey.  If you’re looking for a remote Luangwa wilderness experience, combining Luambe with North Luangwa offers just that! 

The Luangwa Frontiers safari starts in Mfuwe and takes you all the way to North Luangwa via Luambe and back, all through efficient but affordable road transfers. This combination offers  walking safaris as well as  game drives without sharing sightings with anyone else allowing you to soak up all that the Luangwa Valley has to offer.
