The Luangwa Valley marks the southern end of the Great Rift Valley.

The meandering Luangwa River and its ox-bow lagoons support one of the highest concentrations of game in Africa. Numerous crocodiles and hippos inhabit the river and waterways.

Enormous herds of elephant and buffalo coexist with 14 species of antelope, including the rare roan and sable antelopes.

The striking Thornycroft’s giraffe is only one of the valley’s endemic sub-species. Leopard, lion, caracal, and serval prey on the abundant herbivores.

Most of the lodges are set along the east bank of the Luangwa River; game drives and walking safaris take place on the west bank.
