Legendary African safari trip South Luangwa

An African safari trip in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park, located on an eponymous tributary of the Mighty Zambezi River, feels like the Africa of old; before places like the Okavango Delta were beset by lodges boasting private rim-flow swimming pools, award-winning décor and haute cuisine.

South Luangwa is (or was) the home of legendary game rangers and guides, including Norman Carr. Ever-present lions, elephants, buffaloes, hyenas, leopards and hippos aside, the South Luangwa Valley is also home to some special animals that nature connoisseurs come to see: Thornicroft’s giraffe and a brace of antelope including the semi-aquatic red lechwe and puku, majestic roan and sable, and eland, largest of all of them. When the river dries up in the winter months to create pools and ox-bow lakes, the place becomes the busiest airfield in Southern Africa for waterbirds from far and wide.
