Kafue National Park is the largest and oldest national park in Zambia. The park was named after the River Kafue which crosses through the park. Kafue National Park gained its park status in 1924- the Nkoya people who used to live within the now-park premises where displaced to give way to the park. Kafue National park is the second largest park in Africa with over 55 species of mammals. The park is just a 2 hour drive from Livingstone. Due to its size, there are many points within the park which are still untouched. Kafue National Park inhabits some of the best wildlife and birdlife species.
