Experience safari within the City of Lusaka


Lusaka National Park is tiny and aimed at weekend picnic parties rather than big game viewers although the almost guaranteed rhino is quite a draw.

Lusaka National Park is located roughly 30 kilometers from Zambia's capital city and opened to the public in June 2015, making it Zambia's newest and most accessible park. This new and exciting national park is the 20th National Park to be established in Zambia, and only the second national park to be established in a city environment, the first one is the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park in Livingstone.

There are more than 1 000 species found inside the park, including white rhino, giraffe, eland, hartebeest, zebra, sable, kudu among other.

Itinerary

The major activity on this tour will be game viewing with an arrangement of a walking safari.

The park has been stocked with various species including Black Lechwe, Blue Wildebeest, Bushbuck, Eland, Giraffe, Hartebeest, Impala, Kudu, a lone Pangolin, Puku, Reedbuck, Sable, Warthog, Waterbuck and Zebra as well as a number of exotic species imported from South Africa. At present the game is shy and not easily spotted although this may improve with more visitors.

There is a spacious picnic site with gazebos and braai/bbq areas and viewing platforms but no shops so all refreshments must be brought in.

The Rhinos are kept in an enclosure at the weekend and during the week they roam through the park. Visitors can get close to the Rhinos and even give them a scratch if they come close to the fence.

This is not a spectacular Big 5 park but rather a pleasant day out of Lusaka city.

A Recent Review of this tour

Elastol took us on a day your of Lusaka National Park. We had an enjoyable and informative visit under his guidance. He has received some training as a naturalist guide and was able to supplement our own knowledge of what we were observing. We also had very interesting discussions with him to and from the park about life and politics in Zambia. Thanks, Elastol, for a great day!
