Embark on an adventure in South Luangwa National Park, one of the best-known national parks in Africa for walking safaris. The park houses a diverse population of land mammals, birds, and vegetation; keep your eyes peeled for large herds of Rhodesian giraffes, elephants, and Cape buffalo, with several hundred of the creatures roaming the park. The renowned "walking safari" originated here, and remains one of the best ways to admire Africa’s untouched wilderness first-hand. A must-see for birdwatching enthusiasts, the park provides habitats for more than 400 bird species. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Mpika fast, fun, and easy.
