The Luangwa River is the most intact major river system in Africa and is the life-blood of this park. The Park hosts a wide variety of wildlife, birds and vegetation. The changing seasons add to the Park's richness, ranging from; dry, bare bush veld in the winter, to a lush, green wonderland in the summer months. There are 60 different animal species and over 400 different bird species in South Luangwa National Park. The only notable exception is the rhino, sadly poached to extinction.
