Luangwa has two sunning national parks; North and South. While the North has no permanent lodges and is not open to the public, a few operators run walking safaris along the magnificent Luangwa River. However, South Luangwa National Park is one of the most magnificent wilderness areas in Southern Africa. One of the largest populations of hippo and crocodile resides in the Luangwa river, while elephant, zebra, and many predators are attracted to its fertile and forested banks. The park is famous for leopard sightings, gaining the nickname: The Valley of the Leopard because of the many spotted cats that hunt on the river.
