The northern park of three in the Luangwa Valley. Wildlife is widely found, including Cookson’s wildebeest, Crawshay’s zebra and many antelopes and birds. Elephant numbers have recovered from poaching in the 1970s and 80s. The struggle against poaching in the park was described by Delia and Mark Owens in their book The Eye of the Elephant. For many years its wildlife suffered greatly from poaching, but recent years have seen poaching almost entirely stopped. It has generally suffered from a lack of investment and interest compared to the much more popular South Luangwa National Park, although its flora and fauna are very similar to its southern counterpart. In 2003, black rhinoceroses were re-introduced to the park. Walking Safaris are very popular here and for those looking for a private experience North Luangwa offers a very exlcusive experience with the added benefit of unique species such as the Cookson’s wildebeest. Talk to us about combining the North and South Park together.
