The Park North Luangwa is often considered as the most successfully run park in entire Africa, its anti-poaching program is incredibly effective and it still has a true feeling of untouched wilderness. The latter is hard to find anywhere else. The Frankfurt Zoological Society has also successfully reintroduced black rhinos, making the park the only one in Zambia to offer a chance of seeing all of the big five.
Game One of the finest game viewing parks in the whole of Zambia, if not Africa itself. The big five, pods of hippos, various antelope species, and other smaller animals including vervet monkey and yellow baboons are all found here. This is their natural habitat, unspoiled by extensive contact with humans. Luangwa Valley is also the only place one can spot Crawshay's Zebra and Cookson's Wildebeest, which are endemic to the area.
Bird watching North Luangwa is great place for birders. In the dry season, an experienced ornithologist can encounter up to 75 different species, increasing to 125 in the rainy season.
