South Luangwa National Park
The South Luangwa National Park is unquestionably one of the best game viewing areas in Zambia, if not Africa. Sensational game viewing, unique activities and a remote setting provides an ideal safari experience. Part of the Luangwa Valley, the park covers over 9,000km², with the beautiful Luangwa River serving as one of its most defining geographical features; the river's appeal lies in its seemingly untouched state and the oxbow lagoons it creates. Along with its natural beauty the South Luangwa is famous for its conservation efforts and walking safaris, both of which are deeply linked to the endeavors of Norman Carr.
