I took this shot of a very ‘animated’ Zebra in South Luangwa National Park in Zambia…Ahh, South Luangwa….where to start. As my favourite safari destination on the planet I think of South Luangwa in an almost romanticized way that renders me near incapable of being objective. It’s one of those parks that for even the most ardent and frequent safari-goers, makes you sit back and just say ‘wow’. And I’m not alone. Many now label South Luangwa’s 9,000 square kilometers as one of the greatest, if not the greatest, reserve on earth. You’d think that kind of title would come with significant numbers of visitors, but it doesn’t. So, if you’ve sat in a convoy of vehicles traversing the Masi Mara or battled twenty other vehicles to get a sneak peak of a lion in the Ngorongoro Crater then give South Luangwa some serious thought, you won’t regret it!
South Luangwa features heavily in my article on picking the best African destination for a holiday. You can check that article out HERE.
