Hidden wilderness on the famous Luangwa
Overall rating

This scrap of a park on the Luangwa River between South and North Luangwa National Parks is very little known, even compared to North Luangwa. There’s just one small and appealingly simple dry-season lodge and campsite. You and your fellow guests will therefore have an entire park (albeit a small one) to yourselves. Set up by a German conservation foundation, the lodge is an excellent choice for anyone interested in grassroots wildlife conservation and in meeting members of the local rural community.

Poaching has been a significant problem in Luambe in the past and the wildlife-watching experience is definitely coloured by this, although with luck you may see leopards. However, in recent years a game scout recruitment and training programme has begun to pay dividends.
