Wildlife of South Luangwa National Park

SOUTH LUANGWA NATIONAL PARK : Marula Lodge has the enviable distinction of being located right next to the main entrance of the South Luangwa National Park. Established in 1972, the park is internationally renowned as a truly magnificent wildlife haven. Stretching over 9000 square kilometers, the lifeline of the park is the silent but mighty Luangwa River.

With over 60 species of animals and around 400 species of birds, the park will surprise and delight you at every turn. During the summer months, the park is covered with rich, green vegetation that slowly recedes into a dry bushveld as the winter season approaches and takes over. Read More
