Enormous herds of elephant and buffalo coexist with 14 species of antelope, including the rare roan and sable antelope and the striking Thornycroftâs Giraffe is just one of the valley's endemic sub-species. The waterways contain large populations of hippo and crocodiles and Numerous crocodile and hippo inhabit the river and waterways, while leopard, lion, caracal, and serval prey on the abundant herbivores - South Luangwa claims to have one of the highest densities of leopard in Africa. Birds are a major attraction, with over 420 recorded species. Observing the storks and herons feeding on the fish in the shrinking pools is quite an experience.
