This vast open plain lies west of the Zambezi River, on the Angolan Border. The whole area is part of the Zambezi catchment and is flooded from late December to early May. The plain is flat - horizon to horizon and under the huge skies run 30,000 blue wildebeest along with zebra, red lechwe, oribi, eland, buffalo and others. These antelope are prey to many hyena, some wild dog, lion and a few cheetah. Liuwa Plain may be remote, but it is worth the journey.
