TThe Luangwa River in Zambia’s Eastern Province

Aug 22, 1993

The Luangwa River in Zambia’s Eastern Province looks small and quiet here. Don’t be fooled, though. During the rainy season, Zambia’s 4th largest river will fill and overflow these banks to the far side, at some points in this area exceeding 3km across! Now, that’s a lot of water. The Muchinga Escarpment is seen in the background forming the western boundary for the South Luangwa National Park.
