The Luangwa Valley goes to the dogs

Record numbers of endangered African wild dogs grace Zambia’s iconic wildlife area thanks to the combined efforts of conservation partners.


While always close to the brink of extinction, one of Africa’s most threatened large carnivores – the African wild dog - has enjoyed a recent resurgence in Zambia’s Luangwa Valley thanks to the collaborative conservation work of the Zambian Carnivore Programme (ZCP), the Department of National Parks and Wildlife (DNPW), Conservation South Luangwa (CSL) and Chipembele Wildlife Educational Trust (CWET).


Based in South Luangwa, these organisations have a long history of working together and a wide array of expertise and resources that, collectively, have helped wild dogs to make a comeback in this critical region.
