Other antelope species include common waterbuck, bushbuck, eland, kudu, grysbok, oribi, reedbuck, Lichtenstein's hartebeest, sable and roan. Species such as Thornicroft's giraffe and Cookson's wildebeest occur nowhere else in the world and the area's leopard viewing is fantastic. The main predators in the South Luangwa Park are lion, leopard, spotted hyena and wild dogs. The dry season along the Luangwa River with all game forced to congregate along its banks is an experience not to be missed.
