Where To Go
Liuwa Plain National ParkLiuwa Plain National Park is remote and wild protected area located on the upper Zambezi flood plains. The park covers approximately 3,660 sq kilometres and is bounded by the Luambimba and Luanginga Rivers. It’s an area of stunning beauty, vast sweeping plains dotted with woodland islands.
Liuwa Plain National Park is home to an impressive number of birds and animals including the over 40,000 blue wildebeest, tsessebe, large herds of zebra, red lechwe, steinbuck, wild dog, hyenas, cheetah, lions and oribi as well as Lichtenstein's hartebeest and roan antelope. The vast plains of Liuwa have prolific birdlife thriving where over 350 species of birds have been observed. Crowned cranes, wattled cranes, flocks of pelicans, yellow-billed, open-billed, saddle-billed and marabou storks arrive, with grey herons, spoonbills, egrets, three-banded and lots of blacksmith's plovers, spur-winged and pygmy geese, and many other water birds. Slaty egrets are seen in groups, a rare occurrence elsewhere.
The best time of the year to visit Liuwa National Park is between the months of November through to December and May to July. During this time the waters that had flooded the plains are receding and there are plenty of pastures. This is also the time when large herds of blue wildebeest migrate across the plains from neighbouring Angola.
