Welcome To Nsumbu National Park; Zambia's Own Hidden Animal Paradise

Nsumbu Natitional Park
Nsumbu National Park also known as Sumbu by the locals, is located on the western shores of Lake Tanganyika. The lake is also the largest water body in the park. Lake Tanganyika is shared with Tanzania and we have the Lufubu, Ruzizi and Magarazi rivers on the Zambian side flowing into the Lake Tanganyika and passing through the Nsumbu National Park. The park covers an area of about 2020 square kilometres.

Though Nsumbu National Park is the least visited park in present time, it was one of the leading national parks in Africa back in the 1970s, with the largest density of Rhinos on the continent. Come the 1980s and the 1990s, the animals almost went into extinct because of serious poaching by the locals. However, the conditions have changed over the years, poaching has come under control and animal numbers have increased. Thanks to the Zambian government for putting up strong measures in protecting wildlife under ZAWA.

In the park, you will spot some elephants, buffaloes, lots of antelope..,roan and sable antelope, waterbuck and sitatunga. And along the shores of the lake Tanganyika, you will find lots of hippos and some of the largest crocodiles in Africa.

For adventure seekers; you will enjoy the fishing sports and hope you catch yourself some huge tigerfish, golden perck, nkupi (yellow belly). There is also about 300 species of birds for the birdwatchers.

You really wanna visit this park and its diffidently on my top list of places to visit in Zambia. The beauty of this park is that it is located right at the Lake shores of Lake Tanganyika and and we have about four bays that lays on the shores along the park. You can enjoy some scuba diving at the Ndole bay. We have a few pictures of the park on our facebook page.

When you visit, be sure to take lots of pictures and share them with us on our facebook page.
