Sun Safaris Says

  • The park is renowned for its high population of leopards, large herds of elephant, great numbers of hippo and crocodile in the river.
  • The dry season from April/May to October is ideal for viewing the abundant game in the park, as the animals come into the lagoons to drink.
  • Our camps in South Luangwa offer two exciting experiences: the luxury of a safari lodge and the adventurous style of a real bush camp.
