This park hugs a beautiful section of South Africa's west coast and incorporates coastline, islets and lagoon wetlands, playing an important role for resident and migratory birds. Much of this Atlantic seaboard is rugged and hostile, but this portion is as gentle as the Atlantic gets. The rocky Postberg peninsula creates sheltered bays and coves and closes around a warm shallow and very inviting lagoon.
The huge South Luangwa National Park is so wild and remote and full of animals that it would be hard to exceed the safari experience found here. It is one of Africa's most unspoiled places with enormous spaces, a wide diversity of habitats, and a high game density and rarity of wildlife rarely seen in other game reserves. The survival of the valley depends on the winding Luangwa River, crowded with hippos, crocodiles and wading waterfowl, and its numerous tributaries that course through the park.
