North Luangwa National Park is synonymous with walking safaris and is my favourite National Park in Zambia.

Going on safari in North Luangwa is to glimpse the bush as it once was; wild and untouched.

North Luangwa is one of three national parks in the Luangwa Valley, the others being South Luangwa and Luambe. Between the North and the South parks, on the eastern bank of the Luangwa River, is Luambe National Park. It’s small, covering only 250 km², and is usually only visited when travelling the rugged route between north and south parks by road. Luambe Camp is the only accommodation in the park.
