Liuwa Plain


The remote Liuwa National Park lies along the Zambezi flood plain in western Zambia and covers an area of 3,600 square kilometres of remote, wildlife-rich wilderness. The November rains transform its flat grasslands into lush grazing that draws a huge gathering of herbivores, including zebra, tsessebe and up to 30,000 wildebeest. Visitors to the park witness a migration of the wildebeest every October to December. This is a spectacular phenomenon, particularly because getting into Liuwa remains a serious expedition. Synonymous to the park is the lady Liuwa, the long surviving lion of the Liuwa.
