The Luangwa Valley in Zambia covers an area of over 9,000 square kilometres through which the meandering Luangwa River runs. This area of Zambia is an unspoilt wilderness and the ox-bow lagoons, woodlands and plains of the valley host huge concentrations of game - including elephant, buffalo, lion, giraffe, hippo, and over 400 species of birds.
Luangwa Valley is often dubbed as one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world and is well known for its good populations of the elusive leopard and its leopard density is said to be double that of South Africa’s Kruger National Park. This is where the African walking safari was pioneered. David Livingstone, who first recognised the extraordinary allure and unique nature of the Luangwa Valley in 1866, declared, “I will make this land better known to men that it may become one of their haunts. It is impossible to describe its luxuriance.”
