The lush Luangwa Valley, enclosed by steep escarpment walls, is one of the African continent’s finest wildlife areas. The first settlers recognized the game in the majestic woodlands surrounding the Luangwa River as remarkable and in 1904 it became an officially protected area. South Luangwa National Park conserves most of the valley and riverine area, complete with ox-bow lakes and abandoned watercourses, as well as the more densely wooded areas reaching north and west. There are several world-class safari camps along with excellent mobile and fly-camping options in the South Luangwa. In the South Luangwa valley you can find huge herds of elephant and buffalo, hundreds of animals strong, which are particularly spectacular if encountered whilst on foot. Impala and puku are prolific, while bushbuck, eland and kudu are often seen.
