The Conservation Goal for Luambe

Restoring the Park back to its former glory

Bring back the wildlife

Educate our communities

Protect the habitat

The Luambe Conservation Project exists to see the park have the highest mammal biomass per square kilometre in Zambia.

After years of poaching and struggling for resources, Luambe is returning back to its former glory. 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! In 2014, the park was determined to only have 5% of its potential biomass! 

We invite our guests to join us in restoring the park back to its former glory!

Key indicators that the project is working are defined as the following:

1.

Elephant herds settle and become more habituated to human presence (Luambe elephants were traditionally extremely skittish and aggressive).

2.

Thornicroft’s Giraffe returned to the park from the south in 2014. A small but growing population has established since then. In 2020 giraffe twins were born!

3.

The population of Cookson’s wildebeest has grown considerably. A herd of more than 70 has been observed in late 2019. 

4.

Plains game like Crawshay’s zebra, puku and eland are increasing according to the regular counts. In 2019 a small herd of roan has been documented.

5.

Large carnivores like lion, leopard and spotted hyena are permanently present in the park. Wild dogs denned in the park in 2019 and are increasingly reported since by means of sightings, camera trap and radio-tracking data

6.

Critical large bird species such as vultures, raptors, big owls and crowned cranes do occur in Luambe. Monitoring and tagging programmes will provide data regarding their population development and thus the efficiency of the conservation measures implemented
