WELCOME TO SOUTH LUANGWA

Immerse yourself in Zambia's most pristine and unspoiled wilderness. 

Lying between 500 to 800 meters above sea level and covering about 9,050 square km in eastern Zambia, the South Luangwa National Park is home to abundant wildlife, is ecologically diverse, and features stunning topography. With over 420 species of birds and over 60 species of mammals this national park is a wildly dense treasure in Africa.

Originally founded as a game park in 1904, South Luangwa National Park was declared a national park in 1972. Because of this protection as a reserve for over 65 years this area was never subjected to mass tourism and degradation.

It was here, in this park, that the famous ‘walking safari’ began, when Norman Carr, who was a ranger in the reserve in the 1940s, began to operate safaris in the area to encourage tourism and species conservation. 

Our lodge is located in the "warm heart of Africa." Here you will be greeted by friendly, generous and caring faces. At Njobvu Safari you can immerse yourself in the wild stillness, away from the city and large groups.
