Call a specialist to talk about North Luangwa now.

The North Luangwa National Park is an area renowned for its superb wildlife in a pristine environment. For more than thirty years the Park (4,636sq kms) was declared a wilderness area by the authorities and entry was permitted only to game department rangers. In the last decade three safari operators have been permitted to set up small, seasonal bush camps.

Seriously affected by poaching from the late 1970's through to the mid 1980's, the Park was brought back from the brink by the North Luangwa Conservation Project - originally spearheaded by Mark and Delia Owens (authors of 'Secrets of the Savanna' and 'The Eye of the Elephant') - and now is a model for Conservation Projects in the region. 2005 saw the reintroduction of Black Rhino into the area. This is the first re-introduction into Zambia since the decimation of the population in the 1980's.

North Luangwa is a haven for walkers and those seeking a true wilderness.  Most of the lodges here do not offer game drives as a regular activity, and consequently the Park is exceptionally unspoilt and the wildlife utterly unused to troupes of tourists.
