African Safari – Our Top 4 Picks
In Eastern Zambia, South Luangwa National Park is known for its amazing hiking safaris, an unforgettable experience in the desert. Arguably one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world, the concentration of animals around the Luangwa River, and the park’s oxbow lagoons is among the most intense in Africa.
The park is home to 100 different species of animals such as tigers, baboons, antelopes and elephants, as well as several large lion’s whirlpools with about 400 of Zambia’s 732 species of birds. The magnificent trees species, exotic wildflowers and plants that grow in the Luangwa Valley adds to the richness of the safari.
The best time to visit depends on your priorities – For cats and visitors alike, the best time of year begins in July, bird watching is awesome in the rainy season, but the wildlife watching is best during the dry winter months. There are excellent choices when it comes to accommodations for both budget and luxury travelers available in the parks where you will discover a way to appreciate the African wild and cuisine with great comfort.
Whether you go deep bush in northern Khalahari or follow the big cats in the Maasai Mara, a trip into the wilderness is a life changing experience.
