Zambia Sussi & Chuma 2

Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park is one of Zambia's smallest parks, yet it provides a home to elephant, hippo, giraffe, buffalo, warthog, zebra, impala, vervet monkeys and baboon.

The small park has a relaxed, un-hastened atmosphere due to the lack of predators, which makes ideal conditions for photo opportunities. It is also one of the few places left in Zambia where guests are able to see rhino's.

sightings - september 2013

Great news - the Zambian wildlife authority have introduced sable into the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. A very unusual sighting was that of an adult male baboon chasing and killing a young bush buck right in front of lodge reception area. Baboons are omnivorous and highly opportunistic eaters which means they will eat almost any food they come across however they have a preference for fruits, but will also eats other plant parts, as well as insects. Elephants have been spotted every day and as its dry season they sometimes cross the river from the Zimbabwean side.
