West Lunga National Park
No camping or accommodation currently in the park yet. The park lacks facilities and roads. There are 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 camp(small campsite here also) in its south-west, 5 kms East from the confluence of the West Lunga and Kabompo Rivers. Cross the Kabompo via a pontoon to enter the park. The lack of water and thickness of the forest has kept the human population low in the region, and despite some poaching and the absence of protection, the forest is believed to be still fairly rich in wildlife.

2014 - ZAWA has given permission for direct access for vehicles to cross the Luangwa River into the park. This makes Zikomo arguably the best
place to camp for the self drive, avoiding the traffic congestion in the park near the bridge and Mfuwe. There is not a pontoon as of yet, so fording
the river may not be possible till August.
The chalets offer a inexpensive option to the upmarket camps in and around SLNP.
5 campsites have been relocated this year near shade trees with some views along the Luangwa River.
Large groups may reserve the entire camping area.

The park dries out in May and is accessable till mid January the following year. The wildebeest migration converges on the southern plains Oct-Nov, which is also the calving season, and stay there till May. Then they move into the Northern part of the park and into Angola.
Reservations are essential to enter the park. There is a limitation of 25 vehicles allowed at any one time in the park. This park practices low density tourism. A basic road structure is laid out in the Park at the beginning of each season. Visitors are required to keep to these roads at all times, unless given permission by an AP-ZAWA guide. Limited offroading is permitted in remote areas where the road system is limited, and in cases of exceptional sightings. Complete self sufficiency in terms of fuel, catering and camping supplies as well as a healthy degree of offroad 4WD driving experience is neccessary.
Park fees -- non resident- $40pp
Guide hire $10 per day
