Updates from the Luangwa Valley

Luangwa Leopards


It’s winter and the mornings and evenings are cooler than at any other time of the year. While the guests are enjoying their hot coffee, mist is covering the floodplain in front of Kafunta, giving it an almost mysterious atmosphere.

Once the sun rises, everyone is on safari, the mist disappears and behind the curtain waits an enourmous number and diversity of animals…

One of those animals is “our” leopard across the pontoon.


Known to some of our guests from last year already, she’s still reigning her wonderful territory of riverine forest and open plains. Being frequently active both, day and night, and showing an amazing tolerance towards our vehicles, she allows extraordinary insights into an otherwise very secretive life of a leopard.

With a bit of luck, you might see her on your next visit!
