TIME + TIDE MCHENJA CAMP
South Luangwa National Park in eastern Zambia, the southernmost of three national parks in the valley of the Luangwa River. It, is a world-renowned wildlife haven. It is simply know to locals simply as “the South Park.”Concentrations of game along the meandering Luangwa River and its lagoons are amongst the most intense in Africa. The river teems with hippo and crocodile and provides a lifeline for one of the greatest diversities of habitat and wildlife, supporting more than 60 species of mammals and over 400 species of birds.It marks the end of the Great Rift Valley. It supports large populations of Thornicroft’s giraffe, and herds of elephants and Cape buffaloes often several hundred strong. It is one of the best-known national parks in Africa for walking safaris. Founded as a game reserve in 1938, it became a national park in 1972 and now covers 9,050 km². The Park is unfenced and bordered to the west by a steep escarpment and to the east by the Luangwa River. The Luangwa Valley lies at the tail end of the Great African Rift Valley system, which extends 4,000 km all the way from the Red Sea down to the Pungwe River mouth in Mozambique
Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park
Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, is a UNESCO World Heritage site that is home to one half of the Mosi-oa-Tunya — ‘The Smoke Which Thunders’ — known worldwide as Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River. The river forms the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, so the falls are shared by the two countries, and the park is ‘twin’ to the Victoria Falls National Park on the Zimbabwean side. ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ comes from the Kololo or Lozi language and the name is now used throughout Zambia, and in parts of Zimbabwe. Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park covers 66 km² from the Songwe Gorge below the falls in a north-west arc along about 20 km of the Zambian river bank. It forms the south-western boundary of the city of Livingstone and has two main sections, each with separate entrances: a wildlife park at its north-western end, and the land adjacent to the immense and awe-inspiring Victoria Falls, which in the rainy season is the world’s largest curtain of falling water. It extends downstream from the falls and to the south-east along the Batoka Gorges
Kafue National Park
Kafue National Park is the largest national park in Zambia, covering an area of about 22,400 km². It is one of the largest parks in Africa and is home to 152 different species of mammals. The park is named for the Kafue River. It stretches over three provinces: North Western, Central and Southern. The main access is via the Great West Road from Lusaka to Mongu which crosses the park north of its centre. Seasonal dirt roads also link from Kalomo and Namwala in the south and south-east, and Kasempa in the north.
Lower Zambezi National Park
The Lower Zambezi National Park lies on the north bank of the Zambezi River in southeastern Zambia. Until 1983 when the area was declared a national park, the area was the private game reserve of Zambia’s president. This has resulted in the park being protected from the ravages of mass tourism and remains one of the few pristine wilderness areas left in Africa. On the opposite bank is Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park. The two parks sit on the Zambezi flood plain ringed by mountains. The area is a world heritage site. In fashion with the current trend in Southern Africa, there is talk of linking the two parks to form a massive trans-frontier park. The park gently slopes from the Zambezi Escarpment down to the river, straddling two main woodland savannah ecoregions distinguished by the dominant types of tree, Miombo and Mopane: Southern Miombo woodlands on higher ground in the north, and Zambezian and Mopane woodlands on lower slopes in the south. At the edge of the river is floodplain habitat. The park itself is ringed by a much larger game management area; there are no fences between the park and the GMA and both animals and people are free to roam across the whole area.
The Kariba Dam is a double curvature concrete arch dam in the Kariba Gorge of the Zambezi river basin between Zambia and Zimbabwe. The dam stands 128 metres tall and 579 metres long. The dam forms Lake Kariba, which extends for 280 kilometres and holds 185 cubic kilometres of water.
Liuwa Plain National Park
Liuwa Plain National Park is an 3,369-square-kilometre national park in Zambia’s Western Province. “Liuwa” means “plain” in the local Lozi language, and the plains originally served as a hunting ground for Lubosi Lewanika, the Litunga of the Lozi people. The area was designated as a protected area by Lubosi Lewanika in the early 1880s, and as a national park in 1972, when Zambia’s government took over management. The nonprofit conservation organization African Parks has managed Liuwa in partnership with the Department of National Parks and Wildlife and the Barotse Royal Establishment since 2003. The park’s grasslands support a variety of large mammals, including tens of thousands of blue wildebeest, whose annual migration is Africa’s second-largest. Frequently sighted large predators include the cheetah, spotted hyena, and lion, the most famous of which was a female resident called Lady Liuwa, who was the subject of a National Geographic documentary before she died of natural causes in 2017
Kasanka National Park
Kasanka National Park is a park located in the Serenje District of Zambia’s Central Province. At roughly 390 km², Kasanka is one of Zambia’s smallest national parks. Kasanka was the first of Zambia’s national parks to be managed by a private-public partnership. The privately funded Kasanka Trust Ltd has been in operation since 1986 and undertakes all management responsibilities, in partnership with the Department of National Parks and Wildlife. The park has an average elevation between 1,160 m and 1,290 m above mean sea level. It has a number permanent shallow lakes and water bodies with the largest being Wasa. There are five perennial rivers in the park, with the largest being the Luwombwa River. The Luwombwa is the only river that drains the NP, which flows out in the northwestern corner. It is a tributary of the Luapula, which further upstream also drains the Bangweulu Swamp and forms the main source of the Congo River. Although Kasanka NP is part of the Greater Bangweulu Ecosystem, there is no direct hydrological connection between the park and the Bangweulu Wetlands. A total of 114 mammal species have been recorded in the park including elephant, hippopotamus and sitatunga.
North Luangwa National Park
North Luangwa National Park is a national park in Zambia, the northernmost of the three in the valley of the Luangwa River. Founded as a game reserve in 1938, it became a national park in 1972 and now covers 4,636 km². Like the South Park, its eastern boundary is the Luangwa River, while it rises to cover a stretch of the Muchinga Escarpment to the west. The Mwaleshi River flows east–west through the centre of the park, the area to its south being a strict wilderness zone. Wildlife is widely found, including Cookson’s wildebeest, Crawshay’s zebra and many antelopes and birds. Elephant numbers have recovered from poaching in the 1970s and 1980s. The struggle against poaching in the park was described by Delia and Mark Owens in their book The Eye of the Elephant. For many years its wildlife suffered greatly from poaching, but recent years have seen poaching almost entirely stopped. It has generally suffered from a lack of investment and interest compared to the much more popular South Luangwa National Park, although its flora and fauna are very similar to its southern counterpart. In 2003, black rhinos were re-introduced to the park.
The Livingstone Museum, formerly the David Livingstone Memorial Museum and after that, the Rhodes-Livingstone Museum, is the largest and the oldest museum in Zambia, located in Livingstone near Victoria Falls. The museum has exhibits of artifacts related to local history and prehistory, including photographs and musical instruments, and also holds possessions and memorabilia – including letters and journals – of David Livingstone, the explorer and missionary
Island with views of Victoria Falls
The Kalambo Falls on the Kalambo River is a 772-foot single-drop waterfall on the border of Zambia and Tanzania at the southeast end of Lake Tanganyika. The falls are some of the tallest uninterrupted falls in Africa. Downstream of the falls is the Kalambo Gorge, which has a width of about 1 km and a depth of up to 300 m, running for about 5 km before opening out into the Lake Tanganyika rift valley. The falls were first seen by non-Africans in approximately 1913. The expedition which mapped the falls and the area around it was in 1928 and lead by Enid Gordon-Gallien. Initially it was assumed that the height of falls exceeded 300 m, but measurements in the 1920s gave a more modest result, above 200 m. Later measurements, in 1956, gave a result of 221 m. After this several more measurements have been made, each with slightly different results. The width of the falls is 3.6–18 m. Kalambo Falls is also considered one of the most important archaeological sites in Africa, with occupation spanning over 250,000 years

The Ngonye Falls or Sioma Falls are a waterfall on the Zambezi river in Western province Zambia, near the town of Sioma and a few hundred kilometers upstream from the Victoria Falls. Situated in the southern part of Barotseland, the falls are a day’s journey from the capital, Lusaka. Their inaccessibility makes them much less known than Victoria Falls. The Ngonye Falls Community Partnership Park is located at the falls. The falls are formed by the erosion of a hard sandstone layer to form the drop. Their height is only 10–25 meters, but the width of the falls is impressive. They form a broad crescent, interrupted by rocky outcrops. Upstream from the falls, the river is broad and shallow as it flows across Kalahari sands, but below the falls extensive white water rapids exist, as the river is hemmed in by gorges cut into sandstone rock.
Luambe National Park
Luambe National Park is located in the Eastern Province of Zambia. The park is situated north-east of the famous South Luangwa National Park, and south of the North Luangwa National Park. Like its neighbours, it is located in the Luangwa River rift valley. The small park lies on the flat valley bottom, next to the river. The ecoregion at the site is Zambezian and Mopane woodlands, a woodland savanna type more tolerant of the hotter drier conditions at the bottom of the valley than the Miombo woodland savanna which covers most of the country. The elevation is 500–700 metres above sea level. In some places the trees are quite dense, in others they give way to grassland. The life force of the Luangwa Valley is the Luangwa River. In the rainy season it floods and as it recedes, lagoons remain at the side of the main channel. The river does not dry up completely at Luambe but by the end of the dry season flows are reduced to a trickle. The river scene changes through the year according to the water level, which changes the topography of its banks and floodplain. This combination of water and land has created a very special ecosystem.
Chisimba Falls is a waterfall located in Zambia. It is part of the Luombe River, which runs 7.2km from the Chilubula Mission in Kasama District. Location directions: Drive from Kasama center on the M3 westbound for about 24km, then take the junction to the D20 road. After 11km on the D20 follow the sign “Chishimba Falls 700m – National Monument” to the left. A hydro-electric power plant is located above the falls. GPS: M3/D20 junction: -10.165617,31.001737 Turn left from D20: -10.103037,30.928463 Chishimba Falls parking lot: -10,10827500,30,91742900 Over a distance of 300m there are three successive falls: Upper fall: Mutumuna Falls has a drop of 20m Middle fall: Kayela Rapids Lower fall: Main Fall, also called the Chishimba Fall with a drop of 30m Here you can enjoy the scenic beauty of the riparian forest. The Chishimba Fall belongs to the Monuments and Historic Sites of Zambia.
Lumangwe Falls on the Kalungwishi River in northern Zambia is the largest waterfall wholly within that country, with a height of 30-40 m and a width of 160 m. The falls is 80 km from Mporokoso on the Kawambwa road. It has a similar depth of water falling over the edge to the Victoria Falls on the Zambezi for which it is frequently mistaken in photographs. At the river’s height at the end of the rainy season in April/May, spray from the waterfall may be carried 100 m into the air and the roaring sound in the gorge below seems to shake the ground. Lumangwe Falls are reached via a 10 km earth road which turns west from the Kawambwa-Mporokoso gravel road 2.5 km north-east of the Kalungwishi bridge at Chipempe, which replaced the pontoon in 2004. The falls can be viewed from the bank of the river at the top and from a cliff almost opposite the drop. Paths lead to the foot of the falls and also down the gorge to Kabwelume Falls 6 km downstream.

Lochinvar National Park
The Lochinvar National Park lies south west of Lusaka in Zambia, on the south side of the Kafue River. The habitats the national park protects are a large portion of the southern Kafue Flats floodplain, including the Chunga Lagoon, and drier woodland dominated by termite mounds. Lochinvar is also home to hot springs, echoing rocks, remains of a Neolithic settlement and an Iron Age village on Sebanzi Hill, also known for its caves, ancient baobab and wildlife. The park’s northern boundary is marked by the Kafue River. In the south there are wooded hills. The park’s total area is 428 square kilometres. The park is very similar to Blue Lagoon National Park on the other side of the Kafue on the northern flats. A former ranch, the park was designated in 1972 and is known for its Kafue lechwe and birdlife, with over 400 species recorded. The other antelopes found here are blue wildebeest, kudu and oribi. The antelope and birds thrive in the absence of larger predators, which have been killed off by ranchers in the area.

Kundalila Falls is a waterfall on the Kaombe River in Zambia. It falls over the lip of the Muchinga escarpment and makes a waterfall near the small town of Kanona in the Serenje District. It is set in the wilderness on the edge of the Muchinga escarpment. It is the only waterfall of such grandeur that is set so high on the escarpment. The name ‘Kundalila Falls’ means “crying dove” in the local Bemba language. From top of the falls there are views over the Luangwa Valley which is part of the Albertine Rift, the western branch of the East African Rift. In multiple stages the Kaombe River drops approximately 80m from the escarpment. At the foot of the fall is a natural deep pool surrounded by wild flowers. Visitors are allowed to swim and are encouraged to camp and picnic at the site. Kundalila Falls is one of the official Zambian Natural Monuments.

Lake Kashiba is situated south-west of Luanshya in Zambia, close to Mpongwe and St Anthony’s Mission.
Ntumbachushi Falls are situated on the Ngona River in Luapula Province, Zambia where it runs over the edge of the northern Zambian plateau into the valley of the Luapula River. The main falls occur where the river splits into two channels to form two parallel waterfalls each about 10 m wide with a drop of about 30 m, and separated by a distance of 50 m. A small patch of relict rainforest grows in the spray from the falls. During and immediately after the rainy season, November to April, the water coming over the edge may have a depth of up to 1 m, but in the later dry season the flow may reduce to a produce a ‘bridalveil’ effect. Ntumbachushi is notable not just for the main falls, however, but for a series of smaller falls and pools stretching for a distance of more than 2 km above the main falls, in a landscape described by many as among the most beautiful in central Africa, with unusual vegetation, rocky outcrops and views over the Luapula valley. The water of the Ngona is filtered by the wetlands out of which it drains and is exceptionally clear, affording safe river swimming considered by many visitors to be the best in Zambia
Mumbuluma Falls is a set of waterfalls just outside Mansa, Zambia in the Luapula Province. The waterfalls are a national monument of Zambia. Mumbuluma Falls is made up of two waterfalls occurring in succession, an upper and lower falls.

Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage
Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage is a sanctuary for chimpanzees, located in Zambia’s Copperbelt Province. Chimfunshi started as a family-run wildlife orphanage, and today Chimfunshi is managed by a board of trustees to ensure the long-term sustainability of the sanctuary. Chimfunshi was founded in 1983 when a game ranger brought a badly wounded infant chimpanzee to the cattle ranch of David and Sheila Siddle. The Siddles nursed that chimp – named “Pal” – back to health, thereby establishing a tradition of care and respect that forms the legacy of the sanctuary. Once word of Pan’s recovery spread, the Siddles were inundated with orphaned chimpanzees. Although many of the chimpanzees were confiscated from poachers who attempted to smuggle the infants into Zambia for sale as pets, an equally large number were rescued from dilapidated zoos and circuses from all over Africa, Asia, Europe and South America. With over 1200 chimpanzees, Chimfunshi is now one of the largest chimpanzee sanctuaries in the world. The orphanage is home to other rescued animals such as baboons, vervet monkeys, parrots, antelopes, owls, buzzards, sheep, and peacocks.

West Lunga National Park
West Lunga National Park is a remote wildlife haven in dense forest in the North-Western Province of Zambia. It lies between the West Lunga River and Kabompo River about 10 km north of the gravel road from Solwezi to Kabompo, and covers about 1700 km². The national park is the only one in Zambia covered by forest, categorised in the small Cryptosepalum dry forests ecoregion, which exists only in a few patches in the south west of the province extending a little over the border into Angola. Cryptosepalum trees are evergreen and grow densely with a closed canopy. The ecoregion forms the largest evergreen forest in Africa outside of the equatorial zone. Although the rainfall in the area is quite high the soils are sandy and well drained so apart from the rivers there is a lack of surface water. A few patches of Miombo woodland and grassland also exist in the park. The park lacks management, facilities, and roads. There is no accommodation and no towns nearby, visitors must be completely self-sufficient. It is reached by a dirt track from the main road to the park gate and base at Jivundu in its south-west.

Lavushi Manda National Park
Lavushi Manda National Park is a national park in the Muchinga Province of Zambia with an area of 1,500 sq km. It is the 11th largest of the 20 National Parks in Zambia. The park was initially gazetted as a Game Reserve in 1941, and was declared a National Park in 1972. It is located in Muchinga Province, in a district of the same name, together with South Luangwa National Park. It is adjacent to Bangweulu Game Management Area to the northwest, Kafinda Game Management Area lies further west. The chiefdom of Chiundaponde is in the northwest, north lies Luchembe, northwest Chikwanda, east Mpumba, and south lies Muchinka chiefdom. It covers a small range of mountains and hills, and is principally covered in miombo woodlands, with a number of rivers and streams, and a few areas of grassland, both on drier land or in the form of seasonally wet dambos. There are few large mammals, due to poaching in the previous century, but fishing and hiking are possible. Certain antelope species retreat upland to the park from the Bangweula swamps to the northwest during the rainy season.

Originally a grounds for hunting, Lusenga Plain was converted into one of Zambia’s national parks in 1972. Featuring one of Zambia’s highest amount of rainfall, the plain experiences about 1500 millimeters of rain yearly. The Kalungwishi River flows through the park and includes Zambia’s second highest waterfall: Lumangwe Falls. Originally experiencing a dearth of wildlife, the reintroduction of species began in 2007. Species reintroduced include the Grant’s zebra, puku and impala. By Kundabwika Falls rests rock paintings. Lusenga Plain National Park has a cultural significance to two different groups. The Luda people, led by Chief Mwata Kazembe, celebrate the Umutomboko Ceremony, and Senior Chief Mushota leads his Chishinga people in the yearly Chishinga Malaila Ceremony.
Chavuma Falls is a small waterfall on the Zambezi River in northwestern Zambia close to the border with Angola and the town of Chavuma. During the wet season the waterfalls are generally overwhelmed by the flow of the river, but become visible as the dry season progresses. They are only a few metres high. The government of the country, in 2018, proposed to develop a new mini hydro power station at Chavuma falls to boost energy production and stimulate economic activities in the area.

Lukusuzi National Park is located in eastern Luangwa Valley in Zambia, on the other side of the Luangwa River from the more famous South Luangwa National Park. It lies between the smaller Luambe National Park and the Chipata-Lundazi road. Much of the park is plateau dissected by rocky ridges and rugged valleys. The main ecoregion in which the park lies is the southern miombo woodlands characterised by the miombo trees interspersed with grassland. At lower elevations, such as at the bottom of the Luangwa valley, miombo give way to mopane trees. The park is home to a sizable population of African wild dogs, an endangered species. A dirt road runs east–west through the park, but there are no visitor facilities.

Mwela Rock Paintings
The Mwela Rock Paintings are a national monument of Zambia, about 4.8 kilometers east of Kasama The rock paintings are in caves and overhangs spread over a very wide area of bush, north of the Kasama Isoka road at 10°10′ S 31°13′ E, where a signpost denotes the ‘Mwela Rocks National Monument’ with an entry kiosk and guides to escort visitors. The site encompasses eastwards rock outcrops of Mwankole, Sumina, Mulundu, Fwambo, Changa Mwibwe and westwards 10 km from the town Lwimbo rock outcrops. The paintings are associated with the Later Stone Age. Archaeologists rate the Kasama rock art as one of the largest and most significant collections of ancient art in Southern Africa, though their quality is outdone in Zimbabwe and Namibia. The works are attributed to Stone Age hunter-gatherers and are up to 2000 years old. Many are abstract designs, but some of the finest pictographs show human figures and animals, often capturing a remarkable sense of fluidity and movement, despite being stylised with huge bodies and minute limbs. It is considered the most compact site of rock paintings in Africa.

Old Drift cemetery
The Old Drift Cemetery is a small burial site near the Zambezi river in modern-day Zambia. It includes the graves of early European settlers and visitors to nearby Victoria Falls who died of causes such as malaria and is located in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. Settlers eventually left the area for higher ground, where the town of Livingstone was formed.

Katima Mulilo Bridge
The Katima Mulilo Bridge carries the TransCaprivi Highway over the Zambezi River between Katima Mulilo, Namibia and Sesheke, Zambia. It is a road bridge, completed in 2004, 900 metres long and with 19 spans. It links Namibia’s Trans–Caprivi Highway to the Zambian road network, forming a section of the trade route from south-central Africa to the Atlantic known as the Walvis Bay Corridor. It also carries tourist traffic.
The Luangwa Bridge is the only large bridge and the principal engineering challenge on Zambia’s Great East Road, crossing the lower Luangwa River where it flows from the Luangwa Rift Valley into the Zambezi valley. The river is 250–400 m wide in this area, and though in the dry season it may be confined to a shallow channel meandering across sandbanks, at the end of the rainy season any bridge has to be able to withstand a full-width, deep and fast-moving flood. The Great East Road runs for most of its length on watersheds at an elevation of around 1000 m, but the river is at an elevation of 390 m at the bottom of the valley. The bridge approaches have to contend with steep rugged slopes and deep ravines covered in forest or thick bush; the area is remote and about 250 km from the nearest city, Lusaka. The First Luangwa Bridge was built in Zambia’s colonial era in 1932 as a narrow 300 m long wide steel and reinforced concrete deck on concrete piers and columns, financed, like the Chirundu Bridge and Beit Bridge by the Beit Trust
Mweru Wantipa National Park
Mweru Wantipa National Park is named after Lake Mweru Wantipa in the Northern Province of Zambia. Once hosting abundant wildlife including lion, elephant, and black rhinoceros, it has had no management and protection for several decades, and lacks visitor facilities. Consequently, its wildlife population has been much reduced in recent years, the black rhinoceros is extinct in the area and elephant and lion are probably also wiped out. Though mostly in the Central Zambezian Miombo woodlands ecoregion, the Mweru-Wantipa/Sumbu area has a rare and endangered ecoregion or vegetation type known as Itigi-Sumbu thicket, an almost impenetrable bush consisting of about a hundred plant species woven together so densely that it is virtually impossible to walk through. It is known from only one other location in central Tanzania. 70% of Itigi-Sumbu thicket in the Mweru-Wantipa/Sumbu area has already been destroyed, even where supposedly protected in the national park, on the north shore of the lake where some of the largest patches are located. It is estimated that the remainder will be lost in the next 20 years.
