AboutLiuwa Plain National Park
Liuwa 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.
This park is situated in the Upper Zambezi flood plains of Western Zambia. The park covers an area of 3,600km2 of vast wooded islands, and the plain from which the park takes its name is 70km long and 30 km wide. The park plays a vital role in the Zambezi’s catchment and is flooded from late December to early May. During these flood months the 100 metre wide Zambezi becomes a 40 km wide stretch of water, swamp, reeds and islands. The plain is flat – horizon to horizon and under the vast skies run 30,000 blue wildebeest along with zebra, red lechwe, oribi, eland, buffalo and others. These antelope are prey to many hyenas, some wild dog and a few cheetahs. There is a single lion currently but in 2009 she will be joined by further introduced individuals. The birds above everything are breath-taking here. There are many species and lots of them! – Especially in the migration months of May, June and November, December. And during these months as the water recedes and latterly the rains arrive there are carpets of flowers just to put the finishing touch to the extraordinary scenes.Enquire Now
