Create an itinerary including Lusaka National Park
The 6,715 hectare (16,600 acre) Lusaka National Park hosts rare and endangered animals. Walk with a tour guide to gain insight into their backgrounds and welfare. Thousands of species such as blue wildebeest, white rhino, and zebra, roam freely through a habitat comprised of forests, lakes, rivers, and waterfalls. Adventurous visitors can opt for extreme activities such as bungee jumping or abseiling. Or, if you'd rather be closer to the animals, have a guide take you on a lion walk or walk with cheetahs for a more personal safari experience. You can also boat along one of the rivers or go fishing. Using our online itinerary creator, Lusaka attractions like Lusaka National Park can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Beautiful park and amazing location. It once played host to two white rhinos. The most amazing place to visit in Lusaka.

  • Took a morning drive to the park, sadly didn't open at 6am as per their signage but returned later and got access. Gaining access via the Main LSMFEZ gate will require a K10 toll charge and for the park adults pay K30 and children pay K15. The road to the National Park is all tarred, making it great for even cyclists to ride all the way to the Park, the inner roads in the park are gravel, not bad I used a Sedan and made it fine save for a few roads that are in bad shape that you need to avoid (guidance can be sought at entry). The Elephant Nursery moved into the National Park and thats an extra activity you can get into, they have their own fee structure and timings for feeding the Elephants too if you want to enjoy that experience. The picnic area is nowhere near as nice as I would hope, in fact its just a few shelters and some chairs, dirty toilets and no actual picnic spots. The viewing tower is the main highlight there. Viewing more of the wildlife will require patience and tact but there are definitely a few animals you can spot. The signage within the park is scanty and could use some upgrading, be sure to go in good time to avoid getting lost.
  • The park has potential to grow especially if the activities enlisted in the brochure are implemented. I'd recommend a guide accompanying every visitor to their destination to avoid missing in the park. Toilets be frequently cleaned to get rid of the wasps n the water system improved to avoid inconveniencing n poor sanitation. Otherwise, it's good for exclusive outdoor recreation with the view of animals like the girrafes, zebras n more
