Welcome to North Luangwa National Park

The range of wildlife in North Luangwa is similar to South Luangwa’s (except there are no giraffes), and the park is particularly famous for its small population of black rhino and huge buffalo herds (sometimes up to 1000-strong), which in turn attract large numbers of lions and hyenas. The bush here is dense in places, so the animals are slightly harder to see than at South Luangwa, and there are very few tracks for vehicles, so the emphasis is firmly on walking.

North Luangwa’s eastern boundary is the Luangwa River, but the heart of the park is the Mwaleshi River – a permanent watercourse and vital supply for wildlife.
