Luambe National Park:One Of The Smallest Of Zambian Game Parks

Luambe National Park is one of the smallest of Zambian game parks. The Park is only 254 square kilometers. It borders South Luangwa and North Luangwa National Parks.


Although Luambe National Park was established in 1938, it is relatively less crowded than its big neighbours, the North and South Luangwa Parks.

Wildlife

Most of the game found in Luambe is the same game as that found in the two Luangwa Parks. The most common are elephant, waterbuck, puku, hippo, Cookson’s wildebeest, zebra, and buffalo. Sightings of roan, bush pig, eland, genet, giraffe, hyena, impala and leopard are also common.

Over 400 bird species have been recorded in the Park including the fish eagle, martial eagle, vulture, pel’s fishing owl, bee-eaters and the ground hornbill.

Best Time To Go There

After the rainy season, between April and November, is the best time to go there. But for game viewing, September and October are the best months, because during this time numerous lagoons remain alongside the Luangwa River and so it’s not unusual to see large numbers of wildlife near these water sources and on the river itself.

The Luambe Park becomes inaccessible during the rainy season. However, even in the dry season, only 4×4 vehicles with experienced drivers and with trained guides are advised.

Accommodation

The Luangwa Wilderness Lodge

Located near the entrance to the Park, The Luangwa Wilderness Lodge is the only lodge in Luambe National Park. The lodge offers magnificent views of game and bird life.
