Lochinvar National Park is located 186km/115mi from Lusaka, the capital of Zambia. Due to the lack of accommodation, Lochinvar is mostly visited by self-drive visitors en route to Kafue. It is, however, possible to camp in the park. The drive from Lusaka takes about three hours.

Most visitors to the country fly into Zambia's main airport, Kenneth Kaunda International Airport (LUN), which is 14km/9mi outside of the capital, Lusaka. If Victoria Falls is also on your itinerary, you could fly in or out of Livingstone Airport (LVI) (Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport), just outside Livingstone and close to the falls.
