South Luangwa National Park

Considered as one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world, South Luangwa is the best park in Zambia and one of the most majestic in Africa. The 9,050-sq km park is centered around the Luangwa River and is home to one of Africa's largest concentrations of wildlife from herds of buffaloes, pride of lions and the highest density of leopards in the world. The animals may be less used to vehicles and slightly harder to find, but there are fewer visitors in these areas and watching the wildlife is immensely rewarding.
