Perfectly located on the banks of the Luangwa River, in one of Africa’s premiere wildlife destinations, only a few hundred meters from the South Luangwa National Park’s main gate, Thornicroft Lodge is the perfect starting point for your exploration of the rich and unique biodiversity of this region.

Only an hour’s flight from Lusaka, South Luangwa is known as one of the most renowned National parks in the world. That has a reputation for big cat sightings and is often referred to as the Valley of the Leopard. South Luangwa hosts over 400 species of birds with a rich history pioneered by the legendary Norman Carr for walking safaris and conservation-based tourism in Africa. Zambia’s outstanding reputation for guiding is ever prevalent in our team and offers guests a raw, authentic safari experience for an adventure of a lifetime
