Did you know that the Copperbelt Province is the only province in the country without a National Park in its Provincial boundaries.
About 30% of Zambia’s 752 614 square kilometers is reserved for wildlife. There are 20 national parks and 34 game management areas in the country. South Luangwa, Kafue and Lower Zambezi rank among the finest game parks in the world.
Kafue National Park which overlaps into three provinces that is Southern, Western and Central provinces is the Largest National Park in the country and is said to be equivalent to the size of Wales of the Great Britain.
Luambe, and Lukusuzi Liuwa Plain, West Lunga, Sioma Ngwezi, and Nyika Plateau have substantial wildlife but are still undeveloped. Mosi-oa-Tunya, near Victoria Falls, is regarded as a Zoological park as it has a well managed population of antelope, elephants, giraffe and rhino, but does not have any predators.
Isangano, Lavushi Manda, Lusenga Plain, and Mweru Wantipa have never had management or facilities and have little wildlife but are still worth a visit by intrepid explorers and birdlovers. The newest park to be proclaimed is Lusaka National Park, just outside the capital, which opened to the public in June 2015.
Kasanka in Serenje and Chitambo districts and Lochinvar in Monze district are regarded as bird sanctuaries for the high bird population found in the two national parks. They are also characterized by Annual Bird Migration.
National parks and game management areas are part of the tourism gem and combo the country has to offer to the world
