The Luangwa Valley is one of Africa’s prime wildlife sanctuaries, with concentrations and varieties of game and birdlife that has made it world famous.
The Luangwa Valley lies at the tail end of the Great Rift Valley as the Rift reaches Zambia, it divides; one arm to the east encompasses Lake Malawi and the western
arm becomes the Luangwa Valley. Down the centre of the valley flows the Luangwa River, fed by dozens of sand rivers that come down during the rainy season.
The countryside is spectacular in its rugged beauty, the vegetation thick and, near the Luangwa River and its many tributaries, a lush riverine forest occurs that is green all year round. Flanking the rivers western banks are the North and South Luangwa National Parks separated by the 30km Munyamadzi corridor. To the east, between the two main parks lies another Park called Luambe National Park. There is an over-abundance of hippos and crocodiles along the Luangwa River.
Zambia ‘s climate is generally sunny and pleasant. June and July are the middle of winter and are in general cool to mild. The average morning temperature in Winter is 50 degrees F and in the afternoons between 72 -77 degrees F (October) November through to March which are our summer months are warm and some days are very hot.

Zambia is a high-risk malaria area, we suggest you consult your medical practitioner or travel clinic and take the necessary precautions.
