Across an area of 9000 km², the park boasts an abundance of lagoons, river arms and wetland biotopes, which are visited by numerous representatives of the African animal world as a source of water.

    The park, open to visitors all year round, presents itself over the twelve months in ever-changing and unique facets. It is considered a real animal paradise and is home to more than 60 different mammals and over 400 bird species, which can be admired at close range on guided game drives and hiking safaris.

Background to Luangwa National Park

The Luangwa National Park in Zambia is a true wonder of the African wilderness: covering an area of over 9,000 square kilometres, it is an untouched landscape inhabited by a fascinating variety of animal species. What particularly characterises the Luangwa National Park are the walking safaris, a tradition that is deeply rooted in the local communities. For generations, the indigenous peoples have roamed this land, developing a living understanding of nature and its secrets and sharing this knowledge with visitors.

During a hike through the Luangwa National Park, travellers experience the vibrant beauty of the African wilderness up close. Elephants, lions, leopards, and a host of other fascinating animals can be observed in their natural environment while experienced guides share their extensive knowledge of flora and fauna.

The walking safaris in the Luangwa National Park are not only an adventure, but also a contribution to the protection of this unique environment. Conscious tourism supports the conservation of nature and at the same time provides local communities with a sustainable source of income.
