North Luangwa National Park

Overview

The North Luangwa National Park is a secluded expanse of land in the northernmost part of three parks in the valley of the River Luangwa. North Luangwa is regarded to be one of the last surviving wilderness in Africa, covering 4636 square kilometers. Secluded from the public, with no permanent cottages there. Access is with one of the safari operators approved to conduct walking safaris Remote Africa and Shiwa Safaris.

A visit through the park

The attraction of visiting this park is the remarkable chance to explore Africa just as it was. You are merely an unobtrusive witness to its natural beauty and drama. The North Luangwa National Park was established as a game reserve in 1938, and it became a national park in 1972.

There are very roads, and you are likely not to see anyone during your trip. Like the South Park, it rests on the western bank of the Luangwa River adjoined on the other side by the Muchinga Escarpment spreading over 1000 meters from the valley floor. Its faint outline can be seen from the Luangwa River.

Many tributary rivers are running through the park and into the Luangwa River which plays an essential ecological function in the area. The Mwaleshi River flows down the Escarpment in a range of tiny waterfalls. It decreases in the dry season, leaving various pools along the way, attracting the game from the bush to its banks in looking for water. No game drives are allowed in the Mwaleshi area; access is only through walking safaris. The vegetation extends from mopane woodland to riverine forest, open grasslands, and acacia thicket. Trees include the beautiful vegetable ivory palms, red mahogany, sausage tree, and leadwood.

The Park

The Park is famous for its big herds of buffalo, a spectacular sight if they’re seen on the run, kicking up dust for miles behind them. Tremendous pride of lion also inhabit the area. Other common mammals are Cookson’s wildebeest, bushbuck, zebra, warthog, baboon, vervet monkey, puk, hyena, and impala. Elephant and Leopard are also viewed, but not as often as in the South Park. You are more inclined to see hartebeest, reedbuck, and land here.

All birds in the South have been documented here as well. Seen typically are the crowned cranes, giant eagle owl purple crested lorries, broad billed roller, Lilian’s lovebird, the carmine bee-eater and Pel’s fishing owl. Hardly seen are the bat hawk, black coucal, and osprey. In 2003, re-introduced heavily guarded are black rhinoceroses which rarely seen.

Another perfect holiday We were a party of eight, most of us on a return trip (last one in 2020 - also with Absolute Zambia Safaris) under the expert guidance of Robert. It was again a holiday without a single complaint. Pickups were reliable and punctual, the David Livingstone resort is perfectly located on the banks of the Zambezi with comfortable beds, sumptuous food, an infinity pool, and an unlimited supply of food and drinks on the silent but spacious sunset cruise. Robert (from Absolute Zambia Safaris) dealt with all our changes, additions, amendments, and cancellations with endless patience and understanding. It was a perfect holiday, we will be back. Thank you Absolute Zambia Safaris.

Amazing five-day trip Absolute Safari organised an amazing five-day trip for us which included 2 nights in Mwanfushi safari lodge and 2 nights by Victoria falls. Everything worked out perfectly and Robert was quick on the email, answering and organising according to our wishes. Our driver Brian was excellent and always on time and the price very reasonable. Can highly recommend.

exciting trip at the Lower zambeji National Park It was a wonderful experience. I came to know about absolute Zambia safari from TripAdvisor only. I contacted them and Robert was very nice and every time he answered my email very promptly. It was my solo trip and good that I decided to be a client of the absolute Zambia safari because they arranged everything for me. I just dropped into the plan. In my game drive, I saw almost every animals available in the lower Zambezi national park. it was my three day two night trip. The place named Kianbi safari challet where I stayed during the trip was very peaceful and lovely. I again wish to visit Zambia and if I go, I will choose the same absolute Zambia Safari group.

More than I could have hoped for! I didn't know much about Zambia when we were planning our trip, but I had heard wonderful things about South Luangwa National Park. After reading some reviews, I contacted a few agencies in Zambia to plan our trip. Robert Zgozi from Absolute Zambia Safaris was truly amazing -- the entire experience was so much more than we had expected and everything worked out beautifully. Great properties, unbelievable safaris with knowledgeable guides, excellent and almost too plentiful food, I don't have enough superlatives to describe our visit, but I will certainly call on Robert again when I go back to Zambia!

Véritable Afrique Difficile d'imaginer les éléphants qui passent à coté de votre chalet la nuit? Les hippopotames qui broutent l'herbe devant votre chambre? Les singes qui prennent votre dentrifice si la porte est ouverte? Après plusieurs decennies consacrées à la protection des animaux sauvages (période de braconnage de 1970-1990), la Zambie se met à l'écotourisme avec d' excellents standards de services, nourriture, eau potable et confort de chambre. Des simples comprimés contre le paludisme sont conseillés. Les lodges que nous avons visités prennent soin de supprimer le maximum d'insectes possibles pour que les soirées soient bien sans souci. Robert Zgozi nous a organisé un voyage époustouflant (15j) pendant lequel nous avons vu une bonne dizaine de léopards, une vingtaine de lions et lionnes ainsi que d'innombrables d'autres espèces. Notre voyage a traversé quatre parcs (Kafué, South Luangwa, Lower Zambezi et Mosi Oa Tunya ) avec des guides qui étaient de véritables encylopédies de faune et de flore locaux. Nous avons choisi la saison sèche (septembre) pour voir le maximum d'animaux. Ce parcours nous a permis de faire un crochet à Victoria Falls où nous étions suspendus au dessus des chutes dans le Devils Pool. Adrénaline garantie. Par ailleurs, tous les Zambiens que nous avons rencontrés étaient accueillants et souriants. Ce voyage n'était pas donné mais nous le referions bien un jour. Notre groupe familial de 4 adultes partagent plein de souvenirs ensemble grâce à ce voyage. Beaucoup de transits se font en avion car le pays est très grand. Je déconseille vivement les transits entre parc par voiture. Robert Zgozi est Zambien ; il sait communiquer l'amour et la connaissance approfondie qu'il a de son pays. Nous l'avons trouvé sur le site national "Zambian Tourism", Nous vous conseillons ses service si vous souhaitez un voyage clé en main. Merci Robert Zgozi :) Rob NB: La Zambie est un pays anglophone

Fabulous trip to Sth Luangwa We’ve just returned from a wonderful trip to South Luangwa all organised by Robert Zgozi from Absolute Zambia Safaris. I contacted this company as I read it was Zambian owned and I was very impressed by Robert’s speedy replies to my queries. We stayed in 2 different camps which Robert recommended to suit our budget and we weren’t disappointed. Both camps were everything we’d hoped for. We did a combination of chalets and tents with all meals, game drives and transfers included. Robert actually surprised us twice by meeting us at our Lusaka hotel on arrival in Zambia and our return after the trip. We found Robert to be a very friendly, likeable and professional guy who went above and beyond to make sure our trip went smoothly. You can’t go wrong with this company, we will definitely use them again on our next trip to Zambia.

Experiencing South Luangwa I didn’t know what to expect it being my first time in South Luangwa, it was lovely, all of it (the entire experience!). We stayed at Mfuwe lodge and opted for 3 game drives a day, this doesn’t give you a lot of time for sleeping in but all the fresh air and being in the bush, watching all the animals made us feel so refreshed. And don’t get me started on the food!! Absolute Zambia Safaris gave us exactly what we needed and we enjoyed everything bit of it. Their staff is patient and friendly; they take care of every last detail including a range of options to suit your budget. All in all, it was the true definition of a holiday carefree and stress-free and we most certainly will be going back.

The real zambian agency My family and I have just returned from a trip to Zambia. Before booking, as always, I searched for all the best local travel agencies. My choice was Absolute Zambia Safaris. First of all it is one of the few, if not the only one, that is Zambian-owned. So all the staff know perfectly every single area of the country, from the most aware to the most remote. The owner, Mr. Robert Zgozi, has over ten years of experience in the Zambian tourism industry, having worked for top-tier tourism companies, as well as being a lover of unspoiled nature. Before defining the various stages of the journey, Mr. Robert, like a true friend, advised us both the best areas of the country, the best lodges and resorts, and all flight connections. Having traveled extensively in Africa for more than 10 years, I know perfectly well the difficulties of organizing transfers, of finding the best accommodations for the budget available. Robert and his staff have been able to organize any type of activity with extreme professionalism. The organization has always been perfect. All the staff interested in our trip were always present as soon as we reached an airport, a lodge. We didn't have to think about anything but enjoying the beautiful nature and the people of Zambia. Although our international flight (from Italy) was canceled and rescheduled two days later, putting the entire trip at risk, Mr. Robert was able to help us change the itinerary without missing a single scheduled activity. Incredible! While we were in Lower Zambezi, we suddenly decided to go three days to Victoria Falls. Robert, within two hours, organized all the transfers and the resort, taking care in the meantime to get us refund for the two nights lost in Lusaka. Never before have I been assisted in such a professional and friendly way in my previous travels. Among other things, he could also have organized trips in combination with neighboring countries (Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Botswana), having direct contacts. The surprise? While we were in South Luangwa, he came in person to meet us and find out how the journey was progressing. Incredible! Briefly a note on Zambia. it is truly an incredible country. Its people are so friendly and hospitable that you immediately feel like a genuine Zambian. I never felt any sense of danger. In fact, the country is considered among the safest in the world for travel. Landscapes take your breath away. Nature is majestic. Here you can really see anything: wildogs (herd of 20 specimens with cubs), dozens of leopards and cubs, lions and lionesses, different scenes of lions and leopards hunting, huge herds of hippos, huge herds of elephants, birds of extraordinary beauty, including the crowned crane and secretary bird. One negative note: unfortunately having had to go home and leave this extraordinary country that has given me unforgettable moments that will remain forever etched in my mind and in my heart. So I would recommend both visiting Zambia and doing it with Absolute Zambia Safaris. Have a good trip!

One of the best safari operators Absolute Safaris is one of the best operators I have ever encountered - Robert managed to do an incredible thing and organise my custom 11 days Luangwa trip in Zambia at the shortest possible notice ( literally few days before arrival)! My trip was absolutely wonderful, everything worked perfectly and I loved every moment on the safari. I have had so many wonderful wildlife sightings, and all the camps were in beautiful locations, very comfortable with great service and very professional guiding. Truly one of the best safaris of my life ( I have spent most of it in Africa). My big thanks to Absolute Safaris, for their professionalism and outstanding customer service. Will definitely be back.
