Kundelungu National Park

Kundelungu National Park is located in Katanga province of the Democratic Republic of Congo covering a total surface area of about 7,600 square kilometers and the Park inhabits the Lofoi falls which is among the largest waterfalls in Central Africa with a height of 165 meters.

Kundelungu is considered as the sister park to Upemba national park which is also found in Congo and they are next to each other though their habitat and vegetation are slightly different because Upemba consists of mainly open savanna plains with Miombo woodland in places well as Kundelungu is almost entirely full Miombo woodland.

The ecosystem of the Park is grassy Savannah type on immense steppes dotted with forest galleries and the fauna that it is supposed to shelter would consist of antelopes, jackals, servals, porcupines, warthogs, snakes, monkeys, hippos, crocodiles, buffaloes, lions, cheetahs, leopards, zebras, and a great variety of bird species such as cranes, egrets, marabouts and pelicans.

However visitors to the Park should expect more of and put more emphasis on viewing the spectacular and splendid landscape instead of contenting yourself that you will view all the above species because it is extremely rare and complicated to see any especially the big cats (lions, cheetahs and leopards) and no one knows the exact inhabitants all are just predictions but luckily you may come across any of the above because the above wildlife species enjoy such ecosystems.

For the accommodations in the Park is also just a plan and as the plan states the lodges are most likely to be established while overlooking the Lofoi Falls thus offering spectacular views to the Park’s visitors.
