Zen in Zambia Yoga Safari
With Dazzle Africa and Lulu Agan
South Luangwa National Park
Zen in Zambia Safari
July 2 – 10, 2024
At the end of the great rift valley in Zambia lies one of the finest wildlife sanctuaries in the world called South Luangwa National Park. This premier wilderness area is an astonishing place where the meandering Luangwa River runs through woodlands and large plains that play host to magnificent concentrations of wildlife including elephant, buffalo, lion, giraffe, hippos and over 450 species of birds. Nicknamed the Valley of the Leopard, South Luangwa is one of the top 5 places to see leopards in all of Africa. It is here that you will also find one of the last strongholds of the endangered and amazing African Painted Dog. A thrill for any novice or experienced African safari lover.
