Nsumbu National Park

Nsumbu National Park covers an area of 2000 square kilometers which includes part of the shores of Lake Tanganyika.


The Park has a wide range of wild animals. The most common are: bushbuck, warthog, puku, roan, sable, eland, hartebeest, zebra, duiker, crocodiles, antelope, sitatunga, hyena, side-striped jackal, serval, impala, waterbuck and reedbuck.

Nsumbu National Park is also home to big game like buffalos, elephants and hippos. Sightings of leopard and lion are not rare.

Best Time To Go There

Most areas of the park are accessible during the dry season. The dry season is best for game viewing because this is the time when wildlife congregates along the shores of the lake for water.

Fishing On Lake Tanganyika

Fancy yourself an angler? November to April (during the rainy season) is the ideal time to visit Nsumbu National Park for fishing. Nsumbu is a renowned fishing destination along the shores of Lake Tanganyika.

Lake Tanganyika is located in the northern province of Zambia and it’s shared by Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Tanzania and Zambia. But only 7 percent of its surface area is within Zambia. Lake Tanganyika is home to more than 350 different species of fish.
