Not what we expected
Nov 2020 • Couples
I was here at Lusaka National Park in November 27th 2020. We saw 1 bird. We paid the fee and drove around on the rocky, very rocky terrain and we did not see 1 animal. Well a bird. Very disappointing. They really need to do something with this park. I mean the green scenary is beautiful but it is almost treacherous driving in there. If anyone decides to take the tour, maybe do the guided tour. It might be better. Beautiful greenery.🌺

Disappointing 3 hours, 3 animals
Aug 2019 • Couples
In accordance with previous reviews, there are few animals to see (at least there are some giraffes) but the Rhino is not longer there. The upside is that is very quiet and relaxing due to lack of people, and it costs less than 3 dollars and near Lusaka.

Not what we hoped for
Apr 2019 • Family
We were looking for things to do in Lusaka and the National Park came up as a possibility. It had some good reviews (although like any national park, what you see on the day can vary so much), and the possibility of seeing a rhino was a good draw.
We had read that the female rhino had died, and only the male remained.
It was easy enough to find the park using Google Maps, and at K30 per person, it's a good price to drive through the park. We bought a 4x4, but the roads were fairly well maintained.
We were greeted by a friendly guard at the gate who told us the types of animals we could see and informed us that the rhino was out in the park, not the enclosure.
We drove around for 3 1/2 hours and were disappointed to see one giraffe and one impala. We know that it can go either way when self driving, but the most disappointing thing was that another guard we saw said that the male rhino died 2 weeks before we arrived on 1st April, 2019. So, no rhinos in the park. It was disappointing that we weren't told that at the gate. The drive was nice, but there are nicer places to drive if that's what you are looking for.

One of the few places that still has Rhinos in Zambia. You are bale to see and even touch the Rhino. The place has natural vegetation which might give you the feel of actually being put of Lusaka, It has a sitting area for those who would to have a braii, with braii stands provided( You have to brings your own Charcoal though). The park is also surrounded by rocks, for those who like a bit of physical exercise, which you can easily climb

Short visit
Dec 2018 • Business
With a colleague, did a short visit here. I've been here a few times before. This time, the main focus was to see the rhino, Thabo, which we did. Amazing animal. Then took a short drive to see other animals. The park itself is ok. The officers were very helpful. I think maybe they could do with a proper information centre and a shop to get things like water/snacks at the park entrance.

Wanted to Love It
Jul 2018 • Friends
Pretty much all the other reviews are spot on - hard to find, large bush with lots of roads and little signage and some rough roads. Also saw two impalas. The sad rhino is lovely though. He seems quite friendly and you can touch him, which is cool. Might be a great place to ride a mountain bike around all day. I’d probably rate this lower if I hadn’t already lowered my expectations.

Disappointing
Jul 2018 • Couples
The whole trip out there was a major disappointment. I'll start with the fact that there are no longer two White Rhinos at the park - the female has died and there is now only the male.

Signage to get to the park is almost non-existant until you get almost there, so don't hesitate to ask for directions.

The male.rhino is awesome, but it is disappointing to see him caged. He does have a large natural roaming area outside the cage to roam around in, and I would have much preferred to see him.in that envrionment.

As for the other park animals, you must drive yourself through the vast park on rough roads (rent a 4x4) and hope to see some. We saw very few, and beat up the rental car rather throughly.

Admission is cheap - K30 per - but on the whole we left disappointed and road-weary.

Visiting the LSNP

The park can also be reached using the Tokyo way (ring road). The South-eastern end of the road enters the Lusaka South Multi-facility zone. There are security personnel to help you navigate. The park has been enhanced with many more species including giraffe, zebra, eland, the conspicuous pangolin and many more. There's an observatory tower to view the animals if you have a binoculars. A bigger water reservoir could add great value to the park.

Rhinos and some antelopes.
Jul 2017 • Family
This is about 20Km form the Lusaka CBD. This is a good outing with families during weekends and holidays. Only you can see the antelopes and rhinos.
