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,...More

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...More

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,...More

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.

The National Park is located 15km south of town and reached via Leopard Hill Road. The concept is good and whilst this is not your "Big 5" Safari it makes a pleasant change from the ubiquitous shopping malls that characterise Lusaka. Access by car, option...More

Drove to the park on my birthday for some adventure. It didnt disappoint. The idea of having a national park so close to the CBD makes good sense affording the city dweller an opportunity to see Zambia's wildlife without spending a small fortune. I still...More

We had a very strange time visiting the Lusaka National Park. To find the park, you must drive about 30 minutes outside Lusaka. One you arrive, you are directed to a pen where they have two rhinos. The rhinos are not roaming around the park...More
