North Luangwa National Park is one of the wildest game areas on the continent, giving the visitor a sense of being virtually alone in a vast area of untamed Africa. Like the South Park, its eastern boundary is the Luangwa River, while it rises to cover a stretch of the Muchinga Escarpment to the west. The Mwaleshi River flows east-west through the center of the park with the area to its south being a strict wilderness zone.
The area has an abundance of wildlife, including Cookson’s wildebeest, Crawshay’s zebra and many antelopes and birds. Elephant numbers have recovered from poaching in the 1970s and 1980s. In 2003, black rhinoceroses were re-introduced to the park.
Activities include guides walks and game drives.
